North and Latin America may well be getting a Rigor Mortis Edition of Deep Silver’s upcoming Dead Island Riptide, but here in the UK we are getting Zombie Bait.
For those of you who haven’t seen the Rigor Mortis Edition of Dead Island Riptide, the contents of which were voted for by fans, here is a picture of the rather impressive collector’s edition -
This version of the game is currently only available in North and Latin America to pre-order. However, it has been announced that the UK will be getting a limited run of the Dead Island Riptide: Zombie Bait Edition, exclusively for the Xbox360. I’m cool with that…
The center-piece of this collector’s edition will be a resin statue, which is Dead Island’s grotesque take on an iconic Roman marble torso sculpture. Measuring 31cm high and 18.5cm wide, each of the Zombie Bait sculptures are hand-painted and depict the grisly remains of one of Palanai island’s zombie infected.
Paul Nicholls, Sales & Marketing Director, Deep Silver, said:
“Dead Island Riptide is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and is set to build on the original’s reputation for OTT action, dark humour and brutal zombie bashing. We wanted to provide a unique collector’s edition that was utterly ‘Dead Island’ and would make a striking conversation piece on any discerning zombie gamer’s mantel.”
There will be a strictly limited production run of the Zombie Bait edition, ensuring that this is a genuine collector’s item for hardcore horror gamers. Also included within this ultra rare package is the special Steelbook edition of Dead Island Riptide, collectable artwork cards, and an exclusive pack of weapon mods that allows even more, manifold ways to dispose of the ghastly zombie hordes on Palanai island.
We have no pictures yet, but will share them with you as soon as they become available. Dead Island Riptide is due to hit UK stores for Xbox360, PS3 and PC on April 26th.
