The current gaming trend is a form of Horde mode. Wave upon wave of enemies come charging towards you until you either collapse under the strain, or you reach that magical level where you have beaten everything that the game could possibly throw at you. Dead Island (Xbox 360)
is no exception. Players who purchased the Special Edition of the game received a free download token for "Blood Bath Arena", to be used when the DLC was released on Xbox.com. After being delayed due to Techland's need to patch the main game, today is the day that the DLC has been released to their patient customers. The DLC adds ten more achievements worth a total of 250G.
New challenges in four different arenas await players in this single and multiplayer gameplay DLC! They have to ward off waves and waves of deadly zombie attacks, one more gruesome than the next! In the Bloodbath DLC characters can loot experience points and items and bring them over to the campaign. To show off their skills in zombie fighting they can use the newly implemented Leaderboards. A new exclusive weapon, the Sonic Pulse Grenade, tops this DLC package off.
