Dead Island: Riptide
Dead Island: Riptide Xbox 360 Exclusive 'Zombie Bait' Edition Coming to EU and Australia
Written By
View author's profile

Deep Silver has announced a strictly limited edition of Dead Island: Riptide that's exclusively available on Xbox 360 in Europe and Australia. It's called the 'Zombie Bait Edition', and comes with a hideous resin statue, which is apparently "Dead Island’s grotesque take on an iconic Roman marble torso sculpture".

The sculpture is 31cm in height and 18.5cm wide, is hand-painted and depicts the grisly remains of one of Palanai's island's infected zombie victims. The Zombie Bait Edition comes with a steelbook edition of the game, collectible art cards and an exclusive pack of weapon mods.

Check out the stomach-churning Dead Island: Riptide Zombie Bait Edition below. Dead Island: Riptide is out on April 23rd, 2013 in North America and April 26th in Europe and Australia.

Being a big fan of Dead Island this did interest me until i saw the price of £99.99 for Europe version. Bit steep for my liking. Think will stick with the basic edition. Can't wait for this game though! :D

The collectible couldn't have been a statue of the characters could it? No. That'd be just too weird.

Wait a second, if this is supposed to be an "Xbox 360 Exclusive", then how come there's a PS3 version available to pre-order?

And if this is exclusive to Europe/Australia, then how come there's a body with American flags on it?

Rather had seen a proper figurine or bust from one of the main game caracters. The bust sure looks detailed but those figurines Ubisoft are putting out like the Ghost Recon one, Far Cry 3 and Connor from ACIII are all amazingly detailed, so rather had those kinda things added in this limited edition then this bikini bust. But def great for the fans of Dead Island

£100 FOR THAT?! That's pathetic, I paid £100 for the Gears 3 Epic Edition which is A LOT better than this edition, hell I paid £70 for Ninja Gaiden 3's Collectors edition and that's a lot better than this!

This should be in the £60-70 range, £100 is just a massive rip-off

lol holy cow, you care about the price? how about the fact that the statue itself is quite creepy and not in the good way.

i want the american edition, rigor mortis, or settle for the reg edition. no way am i buying this piece of crap. truly hideous decision designed for cheap PR.

Kudos to them, I say, for making a ballsy move and doing something a little different.

Needless to say, this statue will ultimately confirm that all of the Collector's Editions will belong to those over the age of eighteen :P.

Wow, and I thought that cartoony Agent 47 statue for the Hitman special edition was stupid...

@#32 - To the contrary, the game shifted over 4 million units and is actually very enjoyable with three other friends.

Yes, it had it share of problems and glitches (what game doesn't now), but it still had some great co-op play which I hope this new one just improves upon.

I assume this is basically just a cynical, tabloid-baiting attempt to get some free publicity.

In my opinion, this is the kind of stunt that makes sure gamers aren't taken seriously and get painted as depraved psychopaths. So, y'know, thanks for that.

Even if I was planning on buying Riptide (unlikely - the first was crazy levels of glitchy and just a bit meh in my opinion), I wouldn't even consider this edition. To be honest, would anyone sane pay for something that would make their lounge look like a serial killer's murder room?

A bust/figurine of one of the characters? Sure. Novelty USB stick? Why not. A miniature replica of the game's signature item or weapon? Fill yer boots. A lump of plastic - sorry, resin - shaped like a chunk of dismembered woman? Er...sorry, what? Oh, it's based on Roman marble sculptures, you say? Well, if it's *art*, that's all right then. I'll take 12.

Just no. /rant

@#54 - Holy shit, that was a quick reversal.

And, to mention Hitman again, it reminds me of that facebook thing Squeenix did for Hitman where you could send your 'friends' insulting reason why you would kill them.

@51 I'm with ya. I can see the merit in almost every collector's edition....but this? I can see having a game room with life-size Alien replicas and Facehuggers galore, Halo Flood Statues, even full size zombie mannequins, but there's no way I'd ever put something like this on display. Made for pure shock value, and there's no value in that =/
