„Braaaaaiins! More braaaaaaaaaaiiiins!

The next battle between life and death will be waged in Dead Island Riptide, currently in development for consoles and PC by Techland.

An extensive reveal of the thrilling new perils that players can expect from this new entry to the Dead Island franchise is planned for later this summer.

Stock up on zombie survival guides, water, ammunition, and watch this space!“


Alpha Fottage



The original Dead Island Garnered loads of interest from its debut trailer And released soon after to praise and critical acclaim. Although with some technical issues for a first IP it was/is quite impressive and made the cut to earn itself a sequel.

Not much is known as of yet about DI:Riptide all known knowledge is posted in links above and i will keep it updated as and when new info comes out.

After re-igniting my love for this game by grabbing the PC version i thought id best make a new topic for the next game after seeing the sorry attempt of a topic previously. If you have any other news iv'e missed please post and i shall update The first post with it.

The first Dead Island was quite frankly, awful. I tried my hardest to like it, but overall, it has sh*t graphics, sh*t gameplay, sh*t animations, sh*t sound effects, sh*t acting, sh*t fake accents, sh*t and badly thought out story line / side missions. It's full of gimmicks, from the playable characters, from the mini bosses to the rage skill tree, and it isn't actually free roam, like they claimed. The AI is sh*t, weapon modifications are illogical and ridiculous, guns were amazingly weak, even against fellow humans. it had stupid concepts, like snacks and drinks left out for you, even in the sewers, and every where you look, when really it should have had medi packs or something at least half realistic, that you have to ration and save, instead of them being on the floor of every street corner. You couldnt even climb fences on Dead Island. I could go on and on about how much of a fail Dead Island was, but it won't get me any where. I hope this next game is at least 10 times better.

EDIT : Another thing i hated about Dead Island, it didn't have a day / night or weather cycle. And survival mode was kept back as purchasble DLC or pre order bonus, for a zombie game that is just unacceptable, clearly should be part of the standard game.

i hope this one is good, what i hated most about dead island was the fact that all the zombies were in the exact same place every time they re-spawned.

I hated the complete lack of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

It was just shoot, smash and stab.

It's too repetitive, and it get boring really quick. Seems that's how most zombie games are...
The only way to make the game exciting was to add Fist of the dead star mod.

How is it not freeroam?
You can go anywhere once you have unlocked that area, just like GTA games.
GTA not freeroam either???

It's like super freeroam, you can even redo chapters if you want.

I really liked Dead Island I, despite the complete lack of survival, cause you got to kill a lot of zombies, which is fun.

And racing with other people online was awesome.

You though Banoi was nice; Welcome to Palanai's 'Paradise'

http://www.allgamesb...st-screens.html

A new character teams up with the 4 Heroes.

QUOTE
Deep Silver today revealed the first details on the next installment of the franchise Dead Island, which will be available in stores in 2013.

After surviving the onslaught of a zombie outbreak on the island paradise of Banoi past, our group of survivors thought to have taken refuge in the shelter to escape this terrifying nightmare. But they were wrong. Shortly after the arrival of the helicopter team fighters fortune on a military ship, a terrible storm hits and wreaks havoc aboard. Suddenly, they find themselves having to fight again for their survival, the raging sea dashing any hope of escape.

Skillfully blending innovation and sound values, Dead Island Riptide recreate the terrifying atmosphere of the original game. Monsoon ravaged archipelago once peaceful and torrential rains have caused considerable damage over large portions of the islands. The city of Henderson and jungle areas of the island of Palanai were engulfed by the waters, leaving the boats as a means of sustainable transport. Dynamic weather conditions force the team to adapt to changes in visibility.

A fifth person joins the team, with an unusual set of skills. The combination of the skills of the entire group will be essential, as new mutations zombies, even more terrifying and deadly, made their appearance on the island.

New missions in defense of basic coordination skills of players in collaborative mode will be pushed into a corner: they will set traps strategically and implement fences and turrets to repel the constant attacks of zombies and protect people who have found refuge in these sanctuaries.

New communication features in cooperative mode will allow players to enjoy a gaming experience even more intense and team strategy.

It was free roam in the same way Skate 3 is free roam..... (not free roam at all)

Having to go to the pause menu and load other areas is pretty much exactly the same as walking into a tunnel, going through a loading screen and suddenly appearing in a totally different place. so linear.

It was more open world than freeroam. I remember another popular game that started off with loading screens inbetween areas that was so linear to pmsl!

Im glad the new one resumes from the helicopter as i found the ending a bit short in DI exspecially for the ammount you have todo to get there.

The only real gripe I have with the first game is that the guns feel waaay under powered. Even if you have all the perks that make guns the best they can be, it feels like you might as well be shooting spitwads.

So I hope one of two things happens. Either have ammo be much less rare, or make head shots actually kill, at least with the Aussie girl that is a supposed firearms expert.

I agree with the day/cycle. I only rented the game, but it annoyed me there was no night in a zombie game. mercie_blink.gif

I'm sure the bugs will be ironed out. Not the best comparison, but Assassin's Creed was panned for being repetitive yet Assasin's Creed II sat right with most people.

It's only a young series atm.

I thought the same thing about Assassin's Creed as I did Dead Island. It has a few minor flaws that make it average. But under that there is a ton of potential. Vary the missions, tweak the controls, and make the story a little more clear and interesting, and we've got a grade-A game.

I hope Riptide has the same feel of the trailer. This was not the case with Dead Island. You had this great emotional trailer, but the game felt completely different. I still love the game, I just want a really gripping story and emotion in it this time.

Damn, enough with the censorship guys. Its R18 for a reason, not Paper Mario. I really wanted one too, I might have bought the game.

INCORRECT! NBA 2K13 added new stuff, MLB 13 THE SHOW WILL AS WELL. WWE '13 too even tho that's a soap opera more than sports.
