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.
@Adropacrich2: and when you consider that the console itself is still relying on up-resing and checkerboarding even it's key sales pitch isn't the big differentiator they want it to be. (1 minute ago)
@Adropacrich2: not many will be willing to pay through the nose for it though. even MS know it won't be outselling their base model. it's for enthusiasts with money to burn. (5 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: If there were a current gen console game that would most benefit from being on PC it was FF15, wow it looks so much better. (24 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I think it will surprise. I think there are a lot of gamers that simply just want the best hardware. We shall see (33 minutes ago)

Now I just want Kingdom Hearts 3 on PC - even if it comes 1 or 2 years after the consoles' versions. The game looks amazing, both visually and gameplay wise. (55 minutes ago)
