Deep Silver has stated that “due to consumer demand” a special Steelbook edition of Dead Island Riptide previously only announced for the US will now be issued as a pre-order bonus in the UK also. This is strictly while supplies last as anyone who places a pre-order, or who has already pre-ordered at Amazon or GAME in the UK, will receive the awesome Dead Island Riptide Steelbook at launch.
Already one of the most anticipated titles of 2013, fans will finally be able to take on the zombie hordes once again when Dead Island Riptide is released late April 2013.
Now available for pre-order are two different editions of Dead Island Riptide:
- Pre-order Edition: This version of Dead Island Riptide will include an exclusive pack of weapon mods that allows even more, manifold ways to dispose of the ghastly zombie hordes on Palanai island.
- Special Retailers Edition: In addition to the weapon mods this version will contain an alternate character skin not obtainable anywhere else! The Special Edition of Dead Island Riptide will only be available at selected retail partners. Details about the retail partners per territory offering the Special Edition will be announced soon. The Special Retailers Edition will also feature an alternative packshot.
Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013 in the USA and Canada and on April 26, 2013 in the rest of the world – there will only be a limited amount of Steelbooks available, so get them while you can!
