Now Your Avatar Can Paddle Zombies Too
Today I received an email from Deep Silver’s resident psycho PR lead about zombies taking over the Xbox LIVE Avatar Marketplace. Also that she looks awesome with her “goddamn penguin”. Or something. You figure that out.
Starting today gamers can get their zombie-stomping gear based on the upcoming Dead Island, a cooperative survival horror game based on a tropical island. Anything can become a weapon, from wooden paddles to bats to flamboyantly bright Hawaiian t-shirts. Head on over to the official Avatar Marketplace page to see everything available.
Dead Island hits store shelves September 6. Just don’t forget to bring a towel. Or a floating island.
The email also took mention that PlayStation Home users may feel a little crowded (a rare thing I’m sure) as the walking dead are now hanging out, probably judging you poor taste in Home furniture.
Finally, the email announced that an art book will come free with pre-order over at Amazon.com. Head on over to the site to check it out.
