Dead Island is Getting a Game of the Year Edition for Some Reason
It’s well-documented on Game Front that I’m not much of a fan of Dead Island, so it’s interesting to me that the title — which really was not that great — is going to receive a Game of the Year edition later this year. Apparently the definition of “of the Year” is a touch lax.
Anyway, if you are interested in a new version of Dead Island, you’re in luck, because this one will include three bits of extra content that weren’t previously packaged with the game. They’re not much: you get the Bloodbath Arena DLC and the Rider White DLC that recasts the story from the perspective of that character, and you also get a new weapon called The Ripper.
Dead Island GOTY drops in just a month — June 23 — for $29.99. Regular Dead Island is on sale on Steam today for about $12, which you might want to keep in mind. With the DLC, the price hops up to about $20.
