The game few of us wanted a return from...is coming back.
For all the furore and applause that came with the controversial original trailer for Dead Island, the final zombie-survival game didn't half prove a disappointment when it shipped last September. Indeed, video game critics were hardly giving standing ovations upon release day, as the title managed only a 71% average score on Metacritic. And yet, there were even some followers of the game who loved it enough to award it their Game Of The Year 2011 title. As such we've now got (sigh) a Game Of The Year Edition on its way. The new version will ship with both the single-player 'Ryder White' expansion and the multi-player 'Bloodbath Arena' map pack. If you missed out on the game first time round, then, and want to see what all the 'fuss' is about, this may well be the best time to get it as the new edition is going for a solid £30 RRP. Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition arrives on PC, 360 and PS3 on June 26th.
