Dead Island: Riptide is on store shelves, and it's definitely more the same gameplay we saw in Dead Island. This can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on how you feel about the original game. Personally, I loved the first title, despite its flaws. What can I say? I really like chopping up zombies.
Dead Island has sold 5,000,000 copies. By my math that's like, a gillion double-dead zombies. I don't know how many severed limbs that would be. All of them? Obviously Deep Silver is very pleased so much so that they sent out a press release patting themselves on the back. I would too. Dead Island is a damn fine cooperative zombie survival game. It earned our Editor's Choice award in our Co-Op Review.
Last fall, at PAX Prime, we got a chance to see some new footage from Dead Island Riptide. This is the sequel to the totally swell co-op zombie grinder, Dead Island. We were presented with a new gameplay feature, the hub defense mission. These missions will focus on co-op teams defending an area from waves of zombies until some sort of timed objective is met.
Dead Island Riptide is still a little ways away from release, but you can get a head start on the game by preordering the “Rigor Mortis Edition” bundle from developer, Deep Silver, today. Fun Fact: The contents of this edition were actually chosen by you, the fans!
Dead Island: Riptide screenshots aren't exactly in short supply, as we saw a batch themed around the new chef character near the beginning of the month. But series fans demand more pictures of survivors slaughtering the undead, so it would be irresponsible of developer Techland not to dish new pics out. The highlight of this latest array of images is undoubtedly the one pictured above, in which a man with a bad haircut fends off an undead attacker with a boat oar. When the zombies come a-calling, who has time to get a proper haircut?
Steven Seagal is perhaps the greatest action hero of the 80s and 90s when it comes to using the assets given to him. He does not have the muscular stature of Arnie, the wit of Bruce, or even a decent haircut. However, in Under Siege he was a slightly portly chef that kicked butt. Now you can play a similar chef in&nb...
Deep Silver is at it again. The publishers of Dead Island have released a new trailer for the latest installment of the survival horror franchise, Dead Island Riptide. The original Dead Island announcement trailer was one of the best game trailers ever made. It was so good that many gamers were left disappointed with the actual game, which is a shame. It's a great co-op title.
Dead Island Riptide wasn't playable on the showroom floor at PAX 2012, not that it needed to be. At a glance the sequel to one of 2011's best cooperative titles appears largely unchanged. The same characters are present, it's still set on a tropical island, and the zombies are still extremely kill-able. Despite the familiarity, after viewing the presentation I could see that DI Riptide was not going to simply be more of the same.
We have a good chunk of information about two upcoming titles we can’t wait to sink our teeth into: Sacred 3 and Dead Island Riptide. Our friends over at Deep Silver have given us a lot to talk about in this relatively slow news week we’ve been having.
People must really love Dead Island, because they’ve already been playing it for over 6,500 years, cumulatively of course. We have cooperative gameplay to thank for that.
I've been hearing rumblings for some time, but could we be seeing a return to the $50 game? At least one AAA title coming soon will be bucking the trend with Deep Silver's Dead Island: Riptide coming in at $49.99 on all platforms, including the console versions. The new game's price reflects where it fits in the current life cycle of consoles, at least, according to Aubrey Norris - head of PR for Deepsilver.
Deep Silver have announced a sequel to one of last year's greatest co-op games, Dead Island. The new game is called Dead Island Riptide and it's in development for PC and consoles by TechLand. Other than that we have absolutely no other details about the game, but the publisher promises a lot more details this summer. We're guessing the big reveal will be at Gamescom in Germany later this year. Obviously because of the late reveal, don't expect the game to be available this year, but instead move it into an already crowded 2013.
The Dead Island Game of the Year edition has been confirmed for a summer release. This should come as a surprise to few, as the re-release was outed but the UK ratings board earlier this month. The four player action RPG was one of our favorite co-op games from last year, earning 5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review, as well as our Editor's Choice Award. Yeah, we liked it.
The sharp-eyed dinosaurs of Siliconera have spotted a hot new re-release for one of our favorite titles from 2011. The Dead Island: GOTY edition has been outed by the UK ratings board. I went to the ESRB and British Board of Film Classification and found no such listing, but the dinos got a fancy screenshot, and really, who would lie about such a thing?
A million billion years ago (OK, more like 2008), I wrote an article about open world co-op games and their overall awesomeness. The examples I used were Crackdown and GTA IV, but the list wasn’t a long one to choose from at the time, though Mercenaries 2 and Saints Row 2 came out around the time of the article and didn’t get a fair mention. Well, it’s been four years. Have the co-op gods been good to open world fans?
