Zombies! Zombies everywhere! and lots of water, a new adventure, a different island.
Techland and Deep Silver have released more info and some screenshots o of their upcoming zombie survival horror game, Dead Island Riptide. If you played the original Dead Island then you should be just as excited as I am for this next installment. The game picks up the story with the four survivors from the original Dead Island. However a fifth character with an all-new skill set will join the team to provide much needed support. You will be able to import your character from the first game. The zombie action will take place on a different island, but in the same region. A new weather system has been added along with an overhaul of the first game’s graphics.
For those of you who haven’t finished the first Dead Island this next part does contain *SPOILERS*
The survivors of the zombie-apocalypse on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship. When a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides. Devastated by a monsoon, the island of Palanai is crawling with new zombie mutations. A fifth character with an all-new skillset will join the team, providing much needed support. Additional multiplayer communication features and brand new hub defense missions will test the survivor’s teamplay skills.
