Ain't no sweeter price than free

Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War Free on Games With Gold This Month

According to Xbox Live's resident Guru Major Nelson, Dead Island (normally $19.99) and Toy Soldiers: Cold War (normally $14.99) are available this month, free of charge, for any Games with Gold members. Games with Gold is Xbox Live's response to PlaystationPlus , offering free titles to any subscribers. True, PlaystationPlus does normally give access to a greater range of games, but two free games a month ain't so bad.

That's a lot of zombies.

Dead Island Sales Top 5 Million Copies

Dead Island has sold 5,000,000 copies. By my math that's like, a gillion double-dead zombies. I don't know how many severed limbs that would be. All of them? Obviously Deep Silver is very pleased so much so that they sent out a press release patting themselves on the back. I would too. Dead Island is a damn fine cooperative zombie survival game. It earned our Editor's Choice award in our Co-Op Review

Dead Island Riptide Announced, Details Coming This Summer

Deep Silver have announced a sequel to one of last year's greatest co-op games, Dead Island.  The new game is called Dead Island Riptide and it's in development for PC and consoles by TechLand.  Other than that we have absolutely no other details about the game, but the publisher promises a lot more details this summer.  We're guessing the big reveal will be at Gamescom in Germany later this year.  Obviously because of the late reveal, don't expect the game to be available this year, but instead move it into an already crowded 2013.

Dead Island GOTY Edition Confirmed for June, Steam Sale May 22-24

The Dead Island Game of the Year edition has been confirmed for a summer release. This should come as a surprise to few, as the re-release was outed but the UK ratings board earlier this month. The four player action RPG was one of our favorite co-op games from last year, earning  5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review, as well as our Editor's Choice Award. Yeah, we liked it.

Dead Island: Ryder White DLC is Single Player Only!

Crap.  This is very disappointing.  The new Dead Island DLC, "Ryder White's Campaign," will be a single-player-only affair.  The new add-on will allow you to experience the zombie disaster of Banoi as, you guessed it,  Ryder White.  If you haven't finished the game, you may not know too much about Colonel White.  Let's just say he's another survivor of the undead outbreak and he's trying to help the four survivors from the game's main story line.

Dead Island is $20 on Steam Today Only, $15 for the Co-Op Pack

It's almost Christmas and the temperatures are getting colder.  What better way to escape the Winter blues than go to an island paradise.  There's one catch - this island paradise is filled with zombies.  Dead Island is available today on Steam for the low price of just $20, or better yet, if you can muster up a group of co-op cohorts you can snag the 4 pack for $60 - that's just $15 each.

Dead Island Wishes You a Merry Xmas With A Calendar Contest

Today Deep Silver announced a special Christmas Promotion for the excellent four player co-op survival title, Dead Island.  I don't really know what dismembering reanimated corpses has to do with Christmas, but let's just go with it.  They recently launched a new website that will have some sort of macabre daily calender offering up new contests that will allow gamers to explore Dead Island, "putting their knowledge of both the game and international zombie lore in general to the test."  I have no idea how this is going to work, but I'm curious.

The long awaited Bloodbath DLC for Dead Island has finally been given a release date of November 22nd 2011

Bathe in Blood: Dead Island DLC Coming 22nd November

Open your pre-ordered copy of your new game and take out the scratch card.  Behold the free DLC (or access to online), everyone is a winner. Except for people who bought the game second hand; no free DLC for you (no free online access!). Even when you get a freebie, they sometimes take an age to arrive; Space Marine's Exterminatus mode, and Dead Island's Bloodbath DLC are two examples. Techland have finally announced the date for the Bloodbath - 22nd November, let's hope it does not slip again ...
