Well, although it wasn’t necessarily game of the year, or even game of the month for that matter, Dead Island seems to be getting the game of the year edition treatment. This version of the game will feature all that was included with the original game, as well as the Bloodbath Arena DLC, the Ryder White story add-on, and a blueprint for “The Ripper”.
This isn’t a particularly amazing announcement based on the game itself, but people that had been previously holding out on buying the game for this reason may very well be happy. The release date for this version of the game is set for this summer. More specifically, June 26 for North America, and July 6 for Europe. This will be released on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Price point on the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition will be $29.99.
