Hopefully this is some new content that's worthy of Dead Island, and isn't anything like the last single player DLC they released.
Which was fecking terrible.
Interesting given that only a couple of weeks ago they were saying this
Dead Island was a great game, the DLCs for it were a meh and awful but if they can get a game like Dead Island but with a bit more refined, then great!
Well, they said DI2 wasn't happening... they didn't say they weren't making a new DLC for the first game.
The original was great (even though it had a lot of bugs). I would really like to see how they plan to improve it and also if it is set on the same island or not.
Is this a new DLC for the original game? The article seems to suggest it may be a totally new game. If it's a DLC for the original game then my hopes aren't as high given that Bloodbath Arena was passable but totally miss-able and Ryder Whites campaign was mostly awful.
Well, their update on their Facebook page made it sound like a DLC, but other stuff I've read today makes it sound like it's more.
Difficult to really tell what it is.
Nice, looking forward to it!
What I hated about the original was the fact that once the game has been completed there is no way to load or replay chapters you liked.
Sadly you have to start from the beginning, I hope you can manually replay stages in the new release.
Loved the first game - one of the few titles to have truly visceral melee combat (Riddick and Zeno Clash being the others that spring to mind). Only played about 13 hours, though, before being distracted by the next shiny thing. Gotta get back to it...and I'll be keeping my eye on the sequel.
If you want another one, even if it isn't on PC, condemned offers the best melee combat of any game. At least the best feeling.
Loved, loved, loved Dead Island. I was surprised with just how much I loved that game. Can't wait for more.
Loved Dead Island. One of my favorite releases last year, and I can't wait for Riptide.
If it's s 'small' release it would probably be a DLC. If it were a bigger release it would be a separate game, but running off the same game engine etc, similar in respect to how there was GTA 3, GTA 3:Vice City, and GTA:San Andreas. They weren't called GTA 3, GTA 4, and GTA 5.
If this analogy is the case, then I hope it is more like GTA:SA compared to GTA 3, since GTA:SA was improved upon enough that they could have easily got away with calling it GTA 4 (meaning GTA 4 is GTA 5 etc...). Hope that makes sense!
I suggest this is the case, as I doubt that they'd add Directx 11/11.1 support to it. That said, there is no suggestion of a release date. If this game is released for the next gen Xbox, it probably would have Directx 11 (if not Directx 11.1) support.
Although it's suggested the next gen Xbox be running essentially Directx 11, it's more likely that it will be the equivalent of Directx 11.1. Directx 11.1 adds too much performance for such a small cost for them to not want it in the next gen hardware.
CGI trailer, gas and a spark of fire.
Guess they are trying to repeat what the trailer for the first Dead Island did. Only now we know already it will be nothing like it^^
But really, if you are looking for a more emotional or story based zombie game, play Telltales Walking Dead adventures.
Indeed they went for it Got awfully close though I'm going to loooove playing this!
Pretty much my thoughts on the game too, thanks for saving me the typing.
Lead to this new character: (Or rather was part of what inspired them to do this.)
more island stuff? Dead City already.
