Dead Island Riptide first screens: characters & combat

Friday, 31st August 2012 16:46 GMT By Dave Cook

Dead Island: Riptide gets a batch of debut screens showing off returning characters, locations and *surprise* zombies.

We also just reported that Dead Island: Riptide lets players transfer their character from the first Dead Island into the new game.

Thanks AGB.

    Can’t say i’m a fan of them bringing back the cheesy characters from the first one. Otherwise this just looks like more Dead Island with slightly better graphics.

    They never even bothered updating the character models.

    I’m a little disappointed so far, it looks very… well… samey. I’ll wait until I see videos but I don’t know what to think yet.

    Same game, same engine, different place. Yeah totally going to pass on this. THe last game was a complete waste of time.

    And I loved Dead Island, only eventually every area got really old. I’d happily buy this one – as long as they modeled all brand-new areas for entire game.

    The community is again divided in this game…

    In my case I really loved the first one, the engine, the scenario, only the quests were a bit dull… Hopefully the story in this one will be better… AND MAKE A BETTER RESORT!

    It needs a story to have a better one. Look at the last boss they took sound files and mechanics of various zombies to create it and not even trying to hide it.

    That boss the worse thing I have ever seen even compared to hollywood video games.
