Dead Island: Riptide is officially announced with a bunch of screenshots showing that the archipelago has been completely flooded, making survival even more difficult. The city of Henderson and the jungle of Palanai Island will then only be explorable by boat and the weather conditions will affect visibility. A fifth character will join the original cast to face new types of atrocities and mutations. The survivors will often have to defend their base and protect it with fences for example.
Deep Silver today announces first details about Dead Island Riptide.
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.
Dead Island Riptide will be released in 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
@aphex187: if i was in the market to play MS's "exclusives" at this point i'd definitely build a PC to access them. especially if you're looking for graphical superiority. (9 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: If you are a pc gamer and fancy a console then PS4 is the only real option to take. Absolutely pointless me buying an XBOX when all their exclusives come to pc anyway. (15 minutes ago)
like, i expected switch especially to be taking way more wins per month than it has done. i thought it was flying off shelves? (23 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: also, about NPD. how is PS4 STILL having their best sales month in may 5 years after launch and still being the best selling console? (25 minutes ago)
That's sales in the US according to NPD. The same has been the case for Sea of Thieves so MS game sales are clearly not affected by game pass at all... (26 minutes ago)
So State of Decay 2 sold twice as many physical copies as State of decay 1 even though it's available with game pass.... MS has to be very happy with that not to mention digital sales are not included (28 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: In Belgium you can't watch the world cup in vr. No license... Sigh (2 Hours ago)
