Dead Island: Riptide Pre-order incentives revealed
Some goodies packed in.
Publisher Deep Silver has sent out word that those who pre-order their copy of Dead Island Riptide will receive “The Survivor Pack” and “Fashion Victim” pack free of charge.
The Survivor pack comes with an exclusive “BBQ Blade” that will come in handy with eviscerating hordes of zombies, along with a digital map, an XP booster, as well as a special in-game shop. Here’s the scoop:
- A BBQ Blade! This special pre-order pack contains an exclusive weapon only available in the Survivor Pack. How better to dispose of the wretched zombies than with a sharp blade? Add in some workbench-modifying and hook it up to a few fuel tanks to bring some heat to a zombie’s heart. The so-called “BBQ Blade” lets you wade through zombie hordes with ease.
- The coveted XP/stats booster: Want that extra edge to level up faster than your peers? Here’s your chance to get ahead of the pack.
- Never get lost – A seamless digital strategy map allows you to track collectibles, keep tabs on your quest progress and flag custom strategies to share with your friends.
- A special shop! The Survivor Pack will grant you access to a shop offering a special discount on weapons and items. Happy shopping!
On the other hand, the Fashion Victim offers a bunch of new skins for the playable characters in the game.
Those who do not pre-order the game will also be able to pick them up individually for $4.99 (400 MS Points) and $1.99(160 MS points) respectively.
Although Dead Island: Riptide is cited to be a spin-off of the original, it picks up right where Dead Island left off. The game hits shores on April 24rd in North America, and on the 26th in the US.
