Dead Island: Riptide cannot be considered as a true sequel to the successful first person-rpg hybrid Dead Island, released some time ago on consoles and Pc: this game is more like an expansion, featuring more of the same gameplay with some new, special twists. The game was revealed a few months ago and new details have started emerging ever since.
A special edition for the United States was announced some time ago, called the Rigor Mortis edition, with no news for any special edition for Europe. The Bait Edition was confirmed today for the Uk and Europe and it features some interesting bonuses.
Together with the game, players who buy this special edition will get the game wth a special steelbox case, some exclusive preoder DLCs containing extra weapons and character skins, a collector’s edition artwork and a hand painted figuring of a female torso all bloodied, without the head and the arms. The figurine will only be available with the Xbox 360 version, a decision which is still without explanation: the Ps3 Collector’s Edition won’t have any other bonus in place of the figurine.
Dead Island: Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013 in North America and April 26 in Europe for Ps3, Xbox 360 and Pc.
