Hype Time: Dead Island: Riptide

Dead Island was a game that lots loved and lots hated. I was on the side that loved it. The sound of a machete slicing a zombie's head off never felt and sounded so good. That's why I'm really looking forward to the sequel to Dead Island called Riptide. The DLC for Dead Island wasn't enough to satisfy my hunger for more Dead Island. This sequel must fill my desire for the zombie killing I need to experience! It even has a dramatic CGI trailer like the first game had!

A new playable character has been announced by G4TV, "The name of the fifth playable character in Dead Island: Riptide is John Morgan, Techland confirms in a press release. Morgan joins the 2011 game's returning cast of four characters in the sequel, bringing along a whole new set of skills that ought to fit in nicely alongside the talents of the original quartet." New skills?! Count me in. It seems like they are going to try to keep Dead Island as fresh as a rotting, zombie-filled game could get!

Expect to play Dead Island: Riptide on April 23rd, 2012.
