25 Days: Win Dead Island and the Bloodbath Arena DLC! photo
25 Days: Win Dead Island and the Bloodbath Arena DLC!
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

[Update: Contest over! Winners are Azzurus,  Zepinephrine, Noir, Batthink and kierany!]

Dead Island is a zombie game that takes pleasure in being an unadulterated smorgasbord of violence and mayhem. If that wasn't enough, the recently released Bloodbath Arena downloadable mode offers even more carnage with arena combat featuring wave after wave of zombies.

One of my favorite things about Dead Island is that you can combine objects to make a new insane weapon. Baseball bats with nails attached to it, explosive knives to so much more. We're giving away five Steam codes for Dead Island along with five code for the Bloodbath Arena DLC and to win, you're going to need to leave a comment below telling us what two objects you would combine to create a super weapon of your own.

We'll be picking five of you at random to give a Dead Island and Bloodbath Arena code to after the contest closes at 11:59PM CST tonight. No limit to entry and contest is open to everyone! GO GO GO!
