Dead Island Riptide : Henderson Town

Dead Island Riptide : Henderson Town

Deep Silver reveals some screenshots for a new location of Dead Island: Riptide, the town of Henderson.


The town of Henderson is one of the new locations in Dead Island: Riptide. Henderson is situated on the island of Palanai in the once beautiful Banoi archipelago. Palanai caters to ultra-wealthy yacht owners and eco-tourists looking to stay nearby to the island’s untouched jungle. Palanai’s center is the luxurious town of Henderson that has grown into a Mediterranean-looking port town.

After a monsoon has laid waste the Banoi archipelago the city lies partially flooded and its abandoned buildings are quickly falling into disrepair. The team of heroes will have to find high ground in order to steer clear of the waters, where unknown threats lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface.

Day 1. Best first person melee combat ever.

I was watching The Walking Dead last night on AMC, and I must say that I have a whole different perspective of zombies. I'd rather see a ghost. I can't understand how The Walking Dead videogame out done Capcom at it's own game. Zombies are scary again. I haven't played the first Dead Island game, but if it's scary, I may give it a try.

1st game was alot of fun with friends. Did not deserve the poor reviews it got.

To the above poster, It's not scary in the slightest.

Completely agree. Really underrated game imo. Combat and physics were amazing, as was the pacing. As much as I loved the original though, I just don't see this as a sequel. Same characters, essentially same setting, this should be DLC, not a full priced sequel.

Anyone know what the big change is other than a slightly different island and a couple new characters?

The first game looked like somebody smeared peanut butter across the screen and forgot to clean up after themselves.
Hopefully the same can't be said about the sequel.

The game was busted as fuck. The ideas were some of my favorites a game has tried to pull off, but execution and polish was incredibly hard to find in that game.
This game isn't really a sequel, more of a stand alone expansion. Which is not what the game needs to boost it past the success the last game got, and certainly not better critical reception.

Truth!

Fantastic co-op game.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The best conquest modes are assault/double assault. They need to bring them back... but not for Bad Company. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they're also introducing new field upgrades too which just seem to further break predictable encounters. Lots of give and take. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Battlefield 1 conquest sucks. They've improved it (or are?) by introducing a neutral bleed state (tied flags = no ticket gain). That's a partial fix. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Nah conquest is okay in Bad Company 2. I just don't like the movement, combat, or vehicle handling. It's all piss poor compared to BF3/4. (1 Hour ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 Unlike in past BF games if were down by that many, by some miracle we could eventually make a comeback. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: After playing BF1 for awhile i feel the same. Still not use to the ticket bleed in this game. If you're down by 300 tickets in BF1, you've already lost. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: PC wise i can understand BC2 wasn't popular there. Controls, especially on a mouse felt super sluggish and CQ was too small with massive chokepoints. I'd prob place BC1 ahead of BC2. (2 Hours ago)
