Dead Island available for pre-purchase on Steam

0

Zombie fans eager to get their paws on Techland's Dead Island can now pre-purchase the game on Steam. Dead Island has certainly gotten a lot of people's attention since that trailer and it's looking like it might be one of the surprise hits of the year.

Pre-purchasers on Steam can enjoy some early access to the Bloodbath Arena DLC which promises a wave-based survival mode that will allow players to earn XP and cash for use in the single-player game. Also, it looks like Dead Island maybe taking a page out of Dead Rising's book by offering a bonus weapon for those who pre-purchase. The Ripper is a combined baseball bat and buzz saw that's sure to make a mess of any undead monstrosity in front of you.

Dead Island costs $49.99 to pre-purchase but there is also a four-pack bundle costing $149.97 for you to share with some lucky friends. Jim seemed to enjoy his hands-on experience with the game at E3 and I'm always open to some zombie slaying co-op fun with my friends.

Dead Island is on track for a September release.
