Any articles that explain why this isn't an expansion?

They said themselves, that is is not a real sequel. In the same ballpark as BrotherHood and Revelation is to Assassin's Creed II.

Aside from the engine modifications, their answer still isn't very convincing. Still I'm all for more of this game with solid improvements.

Thanks phaethon,and yeah i still don't understand their reasoning besides them wanting to not have people wait on a full blown sequel.

Agreed. As much as I loved the original, no way in hell am I shelling out 60 or even 50 dollars for all the same characters (plus a few new ones), in a slightly different setting. This isn't a game you buy for the story, so having the same characters, weapons, and basically location (with some minor changes and additions) is not enough to warrant a new game.

I still think it will be incredible, especially if they fix all the issues from the first, but I will wait for bargain bin or rental.

In the past media they've definitely shown new weapons and 4 new characters would only guarantee new skins.

I never expected a game series called "Dead Island" to feature vastly different locations, but they look interesting from what's been shown. I was already sold, but a developer walk through would definitely settle the score on what's new and what's re-used.

Dead Ireland? That game would be called The Walking Red!
