In an interview with VG 24/7, Sebastian Reichert, creative producer at Deep Silver, talks about this game. They talk about a darker plot, the 5th character and why the setting hasn't changed dramatically. A quote:

We asked Reichert if he could respond to fan concerns that the island setting of Palanai appears too similar to Banoi in the original game, “No worries guys, with the flooded jungle the whole experience of this game will feel really different. The additional defensive gameplay, the boat, and the advanced character development will make sure that you are diving into a different experience.”

A quote on the plot:

When quizzed on the plot, Reichert responded by saying, “Plot-wise, ‘darker’ is good description of where we’re heading, but of course we stay bright and beautiful on the outside. We are taking a very special step in this instalment and we are looking forward to see how the fans react to it.” “There will be a new character, and yes we have a lot of ideas as mentioned before.
