As if there weren’t enough reasons to get Dead Island already, Steam has revealed some incentives to pre-order today. More than merely providing the pleasure of knowing that one of the best looking zombie games will be in your library, some snazzy DLC will be thrown in as well.
First, the exclusive DLC: Bloodbath Arena. Basically an endless wave of the undead hordes to be expected, the Arena serves the secondary function of netting players bonus experience and cash that is transferrable to the main quest. Sweetening that deal is an exclusive weapon for the Arena called the Sonic Pulse Grenade. Additionally, the game proper will give players a little toy called the Ripper (not the one from Fallout 3), a Dr. Moreau-esque creation shoving a power saw onto the end of an aluminum bat. The Scout never had it so easy.
Dead Island is selling for $50 right now, which could get some to reevaluate the worth of these incentives. But when you’re given the endless bloody goodness of mowing down the undead for cash, how can it not be worth it?
