Dead Island DLC out within weeks

Bloodbath Arena adds survival mode.

New content for decomposing role-player Dead Island will arrive later this month, Deep Silver has announced.

The Bloodbath Arena pack adds four new maps where players will face endless waves of undead.

Orders of the game from online retailer ShopTo were shipped with a redemption code for the content, usable when the DLC becomes available for all.

A laundry list of issues have plagued Dead Island, including an incorrect version of the game launching on Steam and warnings that updating the game may wipe PC saves.

Dead Island developer Techland apologised after a line of game code was discovered referencing a skill named "Feminist Whore".

Dead Island launches today with an extensive day-one patch to fix multiple issues.

Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead unearthed a mouldy 6/10 score for the game in our Dead Island review.
