Dead Island Riptide: Zombie Bait Edition to Infect the UK
Man, Dead Island Riptide sure has been making a splash with all of these special collector’s editions. We recently reported on the Rigor Mortis Edition of the game, which will be coming out for North America, but now a new Zombie Bait Edition will be headed for the UK!
A press release from Deep Silver went out today, saying that a “strictly limited” Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition would be coming out for the UK when the game is released in April.
The main feature of the Zombie Bait Edition is a hand-painted resin statue that stands at about 12″ high and 7.3″ wide. This thing is “Dead Island’s grotesque take on an iconic roman marble torso sculpture.” Judging by the picture above, it is pretty damn grotesque. This special limited edition package also comes with the Steelbook for Riptide, collectible artwork cards, and downloadable weapon mods.
There’s no word about a price for the Zombie Bait Edition, but just for reference, the Rigor Mortis Edition will retail for $79.99. Look out for this scary statue when the game comes out on April 26th, 2013 in the UK. The Rigor Mortis and standard editions of Riptide will be released on April 23rd, 2013 for North America.
In the meantime, let us know in the comments if you’d rather have the Rigor Mortis Edition or this Zombie Bait Edition.
