Deep Silver has announced that Dead Island: Riptide will receive a batch of DLC pre-order goodies.

Those of you who plonk your cash down early will receive a ‘Survivor Pack’ for the Techland zombie actioner, which includes the following:

-BBQ Blade: Exclusive weapon that fuses a sharpened blade with fuel tanks to create a flame-throwing sword.
-XP booster: Your character will level up faster with this bonus item.
-Special shop: Gamers can take advantage of a discount shop offering massive savings on weapons and items

In addition, GAME UK will offer an exclusive pre-order DLC pack of its own, titled ‘Fashion Victim.’ This features a set of co-op skins for Logan, Purna, Sam B, Xian Mei and the fresh-faced John Morgan.

Those of you who don’t pre-order the game can still grab the DLC, though obviously it’ll cost you. Specifically, the Survivor Pack will set you back £3.99 on PlayStation Network and 400 Microsoft Points via Xbox LIVE, while the Fashion Victim pack costs £1.49/160 MSP.

Dead Island: Riptide will be shambling into stores on April 23 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360. Set directly after its predecessor, Riptide sees the survivors battling the undead on the island of Palanai. The game will feature three SKUs: Standard, Collector’s Edition and the controversial Zombie Bait.
