Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition certainly pushes the boundaries

Deep Silver has lifted the lid on a new edition of the upcoming Dead Island Riptide – and it’s a little risqué to say the least.

It’s called the Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition and comes with a 31cm tall “resin statue, which is Dead Island’s grotesque take on an iconic Roman marble torso sculpture”.

Or in other words, a model of some tits on a mutilated female torso.

Deep Silver says that the SKU will have a strictly limited production run. It's available only on Xbox 360.

“Dead Island Riptide is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and is set to build on the original’s reputation for OTT action, dark humour and brutal zombie bashing,” Deep Silver’s sales and marketing director Paul Nicholls stated.

“We wanted to provide a unique collector’s edition that was utterly ‘Dead Island’ and would make a striking conversation piece on any discerning zombie gamer’s mantel.”

With the industry’s attitude and representation of gender very much one of the hot issues of 2012, the reaction to the announcement is understandably likely to anger the more proactive parts of the games community.

Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 26th. Here's a look at the full SKU details in all their 'glory':
