After a huge demand Dead Silver have confirmed that the UK will be getting the Steelbook edition of Dead Island Riptide, which was previously only available in the US, but will now be issued as a pre-order bonus in the UK as well.

However this is only whilst stocks last, but anyone who have already pre-ordered at Game or Amazon will still receive one as their order ships, which is pretty awesome.

However if you haven’t pre-ordered yet, don’t worry there’s still time, but you will have to make the choice between the two versions, the first of which is the normal pre-order edition that comes with an exclusive pack of weapon mods and of course the steelbook case.

But wait there’s a second edition named the Special Retailers Edition that will only be available at selected retail stores and will contain an alternate character skin not available anywhere else, details for which will be released soon.

The game will launch in the UK on April 23rd, 2013 or the 26th in the U.S. and Canada and then the rest of the world a short time afterwards.

Let me know in the comments below if you will be picking up Dead Island: Riptide, but before that check out the trailer for the game just below this.
