Dead Island Riptide Screens Shamble Out of PAX

As part of Dead Island Riptide's appearance at PAX 2012, a handful have new screens have been made available.

We still don't know a whole lot about the game, but we did write up what we would like to see in the game. Dead Island Riptide is due next year.

  • I know that graphics aren't everything, but they sucked in the original and they don't look any better here!
  • Are those Riptide screenshots?,'cause they look exactly like the original...is that the same airplane from the original Dead island?
  • Can't wait to see how the survivors makes it out of the apocalypse.

  • I loved Dead Island but how come most of these screenshots look like they're from the first game?

  • The screens look pretty good. I did like Dead Island, but there were so many flaws (Not just the bugs and glitches) Here's hoping this one improves on its mistakes.

  • So it appears to be an expansion. I'm curious how they will work it into the story, since the ending of the original had the crew leaving the island. The plane crashed on the beach is new, but other areas appear to be from already existing areas. Maybe it will just add new quests and a couple of areas to the original storyline?
  • I liked the first Dead Island but I couldn't play it more than once, it felt repetitive when I tried a second playthrough.
  • IGN and other sites already have details about the story and the game.

  • Surprised to see it's the same characters. I thought it would have been a whole new story with new characters. Hopefully they'll answer that burning question that we never got an answer to in the first game...

    "Who do you voodoo, b*tch?"
  • I read somewhere that they were only going to charge $50 for this game (on consoles, some games are only $50 on PC). I have a feeling they are going to use that as an excuse to make a buggy rushed piece of crap.

    Edit: Found the article- http://www.destructoid.com/dead-island-riptide-is-not-dead-island-2-will-cost-50-229347.phtml
  • I hope we can learn a little bit more about the characters, that was one of the major problems of the first.

  • I thought we would at least get new somewhat likable characters.

  • I loved the first Dead Island, and I am still kind of terrified by the game when I play it (so intense).  So, I would definitely pick this up.  But, I might need to hear more about how they're trying to prevent the release of an god-awful bug-infested mess like the first one.

  • Found this statement on another site, "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," read a Dead Island press release. "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."
  • shouldn't they at least make more characters other than the exact same ones? lol i don't know about this one.
  • is it possible its a dlc or is it for sure a new game?

  • I still haven't beaten the first I got a little bored of it. Hopefully that add a lot more diversity to the quests this time around.

  • And here I thought I would see something that looks like a new game...I was wrong.

  • I was hoping for new Characters , I love the game but I absolutely hate the main characters.
