Deep Silver has revealed more details about the upcoming downloadable content (DLC) packs for players pre-ordering Dead Island: Riptide, the next instalment of the Dead Island franchise. The first pack, The Survivor Pack, will be available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release in regions where it is available. The second pack, Fashion Victim, will only be available through pre-orders from GAME.
The Survivor Pack contains an exclusive weapon. 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 pack also includes an XP/stats booster. Want that extra edge to level up faster than your peers? Here’s your chance. Finally, The Survivor Pack will grant you access to a shop offering a special discount on weapons and items. The Fashion Victim DLC includes a set of new skins for all the player characters (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and “the new guy” John Morgan) in co-op mode.
The DLC will be redeemable via download on Xbox LIVE and via the PlayStation Store. These DLC packs will also be available to buy individually with the release of Dead Island: Riptide. The Survivor pack will be available for 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace or for £3.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam. Become a Fashion Victim for 160 Microsoft Points or for £1.49. Dead Island: Riptide will be released on 26th April for the PlayStation3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
