This Game's Special Edition Comes With A Statue Of A Bikini-Clad, Severed Female Torso

If you are a severed torso fetishist or serial killer, you will undoubtedly be ecstatic to know that one special edition of Dead Island: Riptide comes with the above statue.

Fans of bloody female torsos clad in UK flag bikinis can go out and pre-order the "Zombie Bait" edition of Deep Silver's upcoming open-world action role-playing game right now, assuming they live in Australia or select European countries. Sorry, U.S. torso aficionados. You guys can get the "Rigor Mortis" edition, which comes with a zombie hula girl bobble figurine, a zombie arm bottle opener, and a wooden keychain. No torso.

I'm not sure exactly what one does with a bikini-clad, severed female torso, but at least it makes a good conversation piece. Put this on your mantle and everyone'll be talking.

Really though, this is disgusting. It's the sort of marketing misstep that can make it feel really embarrassing to like video games.

I've reached out to Deep Silver's UK office to ask what the deal is. Deep Silver's American PR rep says the company's U.S. branch was not involved here. Dead Island: Riptide is out on April 23 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
