A few new facts about Dead Island: Riptide were released today via the website and VG24/7.
Deep Silver’s creative director Sebastian Reichert said that a new character will be coming to the game, and the feel will be darker.
“For example, in Dead Island the beauty of the island was often created by man – the Beach Resort, Hotel, etc. – and the terror was created by the zombies,” Reichert said. “This main design theme has changed. Palanai is an island full of natural beauty, for example, wonderful waterfalls, contrasted by natural destruction caused by storms, monsoons and rain. And of course the zombies.”
It should be noted that the game is a spin-off, not a true sequel. In addition, new systems are being introduced to the game, like boats and flooding.
