Dead Island Riptide: Rigor Mortis Edition announced
Deep Silver has announced a collectors edition for their upcoming zombified return to Banoi island. The Dead Island Riptide: Rigor Mortis Edition is a bundle of goodies voted in by the fan community back in the fall.
The Rigor Mortis edition will come with a zombie hula girl bobble head, a zombie arm bottle opener, wood keychain, extra DLC, and a digital map of the island. All of these items, along with the game, will come packed into a Dead Island themed suitcase. This stiff edition will be sold in limited quantities for $79.99. While I do not often buy Limited Editions, I do like ones that come in their own large case, such as this briefcase and Catherine’s pizza box. It makes video game hoarding that much more fun!
