More On: Dead Island Riptide
I would say that Dead Island was one of my favorite games of 2011 and I feel like it didn't get enough praise as it should have. Sure it did have some problems but I thought it was one of the most fun RPG's ive played in a while. I loved the atmosphere, the music, and killing zombies was so much fun. With all that being said I'm pretty excited to see what they will do with Riptide and today we have news of the first pre-order incentive for the game.

Those who pre-order at GameStop, and/or Best Buy will receive an extremely limited edition Steelbook for the game as a pre-order incentive. Additional pre-order incentives will be announced within time but if you are interested in this game then you better pre-order soon cause the quantity of these steelbooks are extremely rare and are on a first come first serve basis.

Dead Island Riptide is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013
