It should be noted that not all retailers will have the same pre-order bonuses, so before you jump for joy and rush your decision, be sure to check out the respective retailer that you garner loyalty to.
DLC Pack #1: The Survivor Pack
A BBQ Blade! This special pre-order pack contains an exclusive weapon only available here! How better to dispose of the wretched zombies than with a sharp blade? Add in some workbench-modifying and hook it up to a few fuel tanks to bring some heat to a zombie’s heart! The so-called “BBQ Blade” lets you wade through zombie hordes with ease!
An XP/stats booster! Want that extra edge to level up faster than your peers? Here’s your chance!
A special shop! The Survivor Pack will grant you access to a shop offering a special discount on weapons and items! Happy shopping!
The Survivor Pack DLC will be made available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release in regions where it is available.

Tired of seeing your character go around wearing the same clothes all the time? The “Fashion Victim” pre-order DLC includes a set of new skins for all the player characters (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and “the new guy” John Morgan) in co-op mode.
In the UK, the Fashion Victim DLC will only be available through preorders from GAME Ltd
