DEAD ISLAND RIPTIDE ZOMBIE BAIT LIMITED EDITION
Wowser, I've never been much of a fan of collectible packaging on games and films, prefering neatly aligned slipcase spines over bulky plastic enclosures, but this Zombie Bait limited edition of Dead Island Riptide looks like one that could see me clearing space on the shelf for. Read on for the official info...
Deep Silver today revealed that it will be releasing a strictly limited Dead Island Zombie Bait Edition
of Dead Island Riptide
when the game launches in the UK on 26th April 2013.
Available to pre-order now for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, 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 for 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. Dead Island Riptide
will be released on April 23rd, 2013 in the USA and Canada and on April 26th, 2013 in the rest of the world for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, for Xbox 360® and for Windows PC.
