If you enjoyed the first Dead Island and are anxiously anticipating the follow-up effort, you might want to spring for the extra fancy edition.
Today, Deep Silver has announced a special North American Collector's Edition for the upcoming Dead Island: Riptide . It's known as the Rigor Mortis Edition and the contents were decided upon by the fan community during a fall 2012 survey. Yep, your choices!
The goodies included are "extremely limited" and are available for pre-order at retailers across North America and Latin America on a first come-first serve basis. Priced at $79.99, the special edition boasts a zombie hula girl bobble figurine, a bloody zombie arm bottle opener magnet, and a bungalow key with a branded wood key chain. Furthermore, purchasers will receive the Dead Island: Riptide Special Edition, which includes a "treasure trove of extra DLC content and a helpful digital strategy map." It all comes packaged in a sweet Dead Island replica suitcase.
Also, don't forget that Riptide will have character import options for those who want to carry over their save file from the first game. Co-op will once again be a critical element of the experience, and there will be a new playable character class, fresh gameplay mechanics, and boats to drive. Sounds wicked fun!
Dead Island: Riptide will be ready to go on April 23 in North America.
