Dead Island: Riptide Shows No Hope For The Survivors

Just when you think things might be going well in the world of Dead Island you find out things just got worse. Recently there was a bit more revealed about the upcoming sequel, Dead Island: Riptide, including some screens. In this reveal we find out that all of the survivors, Playable Character, are on their way to safety and then thrust onto a new island of the dead. Ain't that some shit?

What is fun to also find out is that there will be a few new survivors added to the mix for this new island. Nothing about abilities, personality, or look has been mentioned, but at least it sounds like it will be more than just the four people we can look forward to helping survive. I am curious if this will, if true, push for more people in the co-op/multiplayer arena in the game. It would make sense, but there are always limitations.

No more jibber jabber. Here's what has been said on the setting and those promised screen shots. Enjoy.

Having survived the ordeals of the zombie infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi, our group of survivors thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. But they were wrong. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board. Suddenly they find themselves struggling for their lives again with all hope drowning in the rising waves.
