Dead Island - Pre-Order Bonus / First DLC Announced!

Dead Island. This game just cannot get here fast enough. It may be a long way down the road, but the good folks over at Deep Silver have announced just what gamers can expect should they pre-order from GameStop.

This special edition is available for pre-order customers at GameStop only and includes a token for the upcoming "Bloodbath Arena" DLC. The "Bloodbath Arena" pack features single and multi-player challenges in four different arenas. Experience points and items that are earned can be carried over into single and multi-player campaigns. It also includes a new weapon - the Brain Wave Bomb.

The "Bloodbath Arena" DLC will be available after launch for $10.

Welcome to the Island of Banoi!

The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday, a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive.

This is Dead Island... a paradise to die for.

Dead Island will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
