Pre-order Dead Island from Steam, get extra weapon, DLC

Steam’s started taking pre-orders for Techland’s Dead Island. For the PC version only, of course.

The incentives are rather standard though; a special weapon and the Horde-like Bloodbath Arena add-on are up for grabs (via).

The weapon looks to be a circular saw attached to a baseball bat-like item. It’ll be effective, surely.

As for the DLC add-on, it’s got a bit more meat on its bones. Official details on that below:

– 4 deadly and hazardous Arenas with endless waves of zombies
– Play in single or co-op multiplayer!
– Loot XP and items and bring them over into your campaign
– Leaderboard to challenge your friends
– New gruesome weapon: Sonic Pulse Grenade

The pre-order goods apply for other retailers as well, as announced last month.

The game’s out in September, for all PC, PS3 and 360.
