New information was released today about the fifth playable character in Dead Island: Riptide.
John Morgan is a master of hand-to-hand combat who can be used at the start of the game. He was “inspired by some very popular fan mods,” according to Deep Silver. In particular, he was inspired by the Fist of the North Star mod that let players destroy anything with their hands. However, don’t expect Morgan to be as destructive.
While there will be a fifth character, the game will still only allow up to four players to kill zombies at once.
