In UK, those who pre-order the title at retailer GAME will also get the Fashion Victim DLC pack, which comes with a set of new skins for all of the playable characters (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and John Morgan).

Both packs will be released at launch for non-pre-order customers to purchase. The Survivor pack will cost 400 Microsoft Points or for £3.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam, and the Fashion Victim pack will cost 160 Microsoft Points or £1.49.

Two versions of the Dead Island sequel have been revealed for pre-order, including a 'Special Retailers Edition' which is set to feature unique in-game content.

Featuring a new character, skills, multiplayer features and hub defense missions, the sequel's set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on April 23, 2013 in North America and worldwide on April 26.
