Dead Island pre-order edition detailed

If you’re thinking about pre-ordering Techland’s free roaming zombie slasher Dead Island, publisher Deep Silver has thrown in a goodie to tempt you a little extra.

Specifically you’ll get the DLC pack Bloodbath Arena. This will offer single- and multiplayer challenges in four different arenas. It sounds like we’re dealing with a Horde-style mode, where increasingly difficult waves of enemies will attack you and your buddies.

In the DLC you can earn XP and items and bring them over to your campaign. There will also be online leaderboards. And last, and possibly least, you get a new weapon – the brain wave bomb. The DLC will be 10 $/euros to everyone else.

If you’re still undecided, you can go here to watch some gameplay.

The game will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC some time this year.
