Deep Silver today announced the upcoming release of the Game of the Year Edition for the award-winning game Dead Island.
Originally released in September of 2011, Dead Island was named Gamecritics.com's 2011 Game of the Year and received multiple Editors' Choice awards. Dead Island quickly became a fan favorite, topping the charts of #1 best-selling games worldwide during its launch and going on to delight over 3 million zombie lovers across the globe. This new edition gives players who are yet to experience the beautiful terror of Dead Island a version packed with content: including the Bloodbath Arena mode, the Ryder WhiteÂ’s Campaign single-player story arc and the blueprint for the highly-coveted Ripper weapon mod.
"There's nothing more satisfying than gracefully tossing a normal, inconspicuous looking kitchen knife at some foul creature and bringing complete decapitation to their world," mused Aubrey Norris, Deep Silver's Manager of Suspicious Radio Voices, while wearing a smooth velvet smoking jacket and pouring a glass of some questionable-looking red substance on the rocks. "By unleashing -- I mean, releasing -- the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition upon the world, we feel that we are doing our part to empower the world with the ultimate survival tutorial.
