Dead Island: Riptide - Preview Roundup # 1
Two previews for this game has been published on the net; the first one comes from
Gaming Illustrated and here's a quote:
Familiar names Logan, Purna, Xian Mei and Sam B will all be returning for the second installment of the franchise. While all four members of the original Dead Island will remain as the protagonists of the spin-off, a new playable survivor will be making his debut in Dead Island: Riptide. The new character, John Morgan, is described as a martial arts expert who fell into a menial job as a chef aboard a Navy ship. Despite his job status, Morgan seems to be more prepared for the apocalypse than anyone else.
The second preview for this game has been penned by Capsule Computers, and here's a quote:
Most of the missions themselves will not be foreign to Dead Island players: there's lots of acquisition quests and rescue quests, but we also got to experience the new defense hub missions. Our first time, we put up these wire fences to delay the zombies and allow shooters to pick them off at a safe range (although I had no success in stabbing through the fence as I couldn't reach them). We were assured that the hordes would not spawn and advance on the camp until all fences had been placed, although I'm sure they will place timers on some of them later in the game.
