By Updated on

We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that are thinking about buying the highly-anticipated Dead Island when it arrives later this year, as the publisher Deep Silver has just announced that the zombie-slashing game is getting a special ‘pre-order edition.’

As Jacob Siegal over on the gamerant.com website recently noted, those who decide to pre-order the Dead Island game will receive the special pre-order edition, which comes with the Bloodbath Arena DLC, a blueprint for a special weapon called the ‘Ripper,’ and exclusive cover art.

The Bloodbath Arena DLC comes with four different areas for both single player and multiplayer challenges. Similar to the Firefight mode in Halo or the Horde mode in Gears of War, Bloodbath Arena sees players facing endless waves of zombies, while they try to inflict as much damage as they can.

Bloodbath Arena also comes with a leaderboard so players can show off their zombie slaughtering skills. However, killing zombies should be made a little easier with the exclusive brain wave bomb weapon. Meanwhile, the ‘Ripper’ is said to be a destructive combination of a buzz saw and a baseball bat.

The Dead Island game is sue to arrive in stores on August 1st, and will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Will you be pre-ordering Dead Island?
