Dead Island: Riptide details can bite a 5th survivor!

Dead Island: Riptide details have surfaced and what… you thought we were going to leave you with zombie related blue balls like The Walking Dead TV show?! Anyway details are as below  as you read on so be ready to get hype! Our awesome faces from the original Dead Island will make their return Sam B, Xian Mei, Logan Carter, and Purna will all return with the unique skills that brought them together and surviving in the first place. But how about a fifth character joining the ranks of our original heroes!? We’ll get back to that in a second here is some solid info regarding what were in for exactly:

Having survived the ordeals of the zombie infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi, our group of survivors thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. But they were wrong. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board. Suddenly they find themselves struggling for their lives again with all hope drowning in the rising waves.

With invigorating new elements infused into a proven mix, Dead Island Riptide will reanimate the zombie terror in the original game. A monsoon has hit the once beautiful archipelago and heavy rainstorms have laid waste to large areas of the islands. The city of Henderson and jungle areas on the island of Palanai were flooded leaving boats as the only remaining way of transportation. Dynamic weather conditions will force the team members to adapt to changing visibility conditions.

A fifth character will join the team, with an all-new and unique skill set. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed, since terrible, new and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.

In new hub defense missions, the coop teamwork skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncoming Zombie onslaughts and to protect the humans in these sanctuaries.

New communication features in coop mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic team experience.

What kind of surprises can a new member bring us or what I’m concerned about.. weapons?!

Zombies as pets and/or weapons
Crossbow and or Archer
A resourceful kid (Think Hit-girl..)

The new hub defense game is interesting and fun in some games (Brutal Legend and Assassins Creed Revelations for example) Not my cup of tea as a story based mini-game you have to finish in order to progress but it’s always fun to go for something new you know? Cant wait to see who the new character is and what they bring to the table. Who or what kind of character class are you looking forward to seeing?
