Bloodbath Arena DLC announcement

Bloodbath Arena is the first special pre-order Downloadable Content (DLC) available for Dead Island, exclusively at Game Stop and via Steam for PC users.[1] After numerous delays, the DLC was available for download on November 22, 2011.[2]


[edit] Overview

The Bloodbath Arena DLC includes a survival mode where players, either single player or co-op mode, must endure hordes and hordes of zombies until their death(s). The pack includes four different arenas to choose from featuring endless waves of the undead. The player may gain experience points and loot that can be carried over into their story mode. Those who achieve high, record scores will be featured on the Xbox Live Leaderboard.

The pack also features a new weapon, the Sonic Pulse Grenade as well as a special weapon, the Ripper. The Ripper is a combination of the Baseball Bat and buzz saw that "leaves attacking zombies battered and bleeding to death."

If not purchased as a pre-order with the game, the DLC pack can be later purchased for $10.00[3]
