Dead Island was a surprising hit when it landed last year. It filled a satisfying survival sim shaped hole that DayZ has recently been catering to. There's good news for fans of the first game. VG247 have news that a sequel called Dead Island: Riptide is on the way. For now there's no information a beyond that name, but Riptide does have a watery feel to it. I'm going to resolutely hope for zombie sharks until more information is released this summer. What would you like to see from the sequel?
Dead Island: Riptide, the maybes-equel or sort-of-expansionpack to co-op zombie RPG Dead Island, shipwrecks you once again – on a new Dead Island island that looks and plays exactly the same as the last Dead Island island. Its open world tropical sandbox initially seems promising: it’s stunningly beautiful, filled with silly weapons with which to slash wandering zombies on your way through its flimsy plot, and it has a new stereotype: an Australian man. Unfortunately, playing it is a lot like leaving one screeching hen party in Barbados only to end up at a squalling hen party in Hawaii, but with boats, a knock-off 50 Cent (20 Cent?!) and then it rains on you. (They’ve added weather, at least.)
Dead Island: Riptide will stumble groaning into the sunlight on April 23 next year in the US and Canada, and April 26 everywhere else. Hopefully a copy will wash up on Banoi island. The survivors could do with a little bit of genre awareness after the first adventure, which saw them traipsing right into the middle of a massive town swarming with undead sorts. But why bother with the outskirts when you've got an electric katana?
The first Dead Island had four classic playable characters, so we understand if Techland don't want to upset the balance. There was that rapper guy, thingy with the high heels, the one who's good at chucking, and what's-her-name who was a dab hand with guns. Now *drum roll* we can welcome Good At Punching Things into their esteemed company, the man also known as John Morgan (ex Navy SEAL), and therefore also known as Steven Seagal in Under Siege.
The Dead Island: Riptide is out, but it's come back in for some UK (and Nordic) customers who bought the game at retail. In place of the expansion/sequel type thing to the open world AAARRGGHH-PG, upon activating the game on Steam purchasers have been finding themselves with a shiny new copy of Dark Souls instead. It's a code-printing mixup that is apparently now solved, the codes now activating the correct game at installation. If you've already been affected, contact Steam support and they'll swap the Dark for the Dead - you know, if you still want it after all that.
The first in-game footage of Dead Island: Riptide has burst forth from its sandy grave with nine minutes of the same enjoyable brain-slicing and power-kicking action from the previous open-world survival RPG. We also see a couple new elements Techland plans for the return to Banoi, including driveable boats and hub defense missions.
Kill zombies. Survive. Loot. Complete fetch quests. That's the core gameplay loop in Dead Island, a series that hasn't really proven itself yet but manages to sell really well anyway. As a result of the latter, publisher Deep Silver has announced a new MOBA based on the franchise. According to the publisher, the game will "pit three teams of players against each other in a desperate fight for survival."
With the release of Saints Row IV just around the corner, it seems that publisher Deep Silver wants to set a charitable tone with a Humble Bundle consisting of its more delinquent titles. After all, crime’s perfectly legal if it’s done in the name of sick children.
The Deep SilverHumble Bundle turned some heads last week, with a great deal on games like Saints Row: The Third and Risen 2: Dark Waters. Now the bundle has expanded to include Dead Island and Metro 2033, making it a deal that is just ridiculous to pass up.
Lara Croft has had her knockers over the years, but it appears the British adventurer still boasts box office appeal, judging by the latest pre-order sales chart from online retailer Green Man Gaming.
As Evan mentioned last night, Rising Storm is currently undergoing a free Steam weekend. But if Tripwire's brutal FPS doesn't appeal, there's another, far less harrowing route to moneyless multiplayer murder. Size Five Games' enjoyable one-on-one arcade battler Gun Monkeys can be trialled for free from now until this Sunday.
Deep Silver wants to include the players its decision-making process for the bonus items packaged in the Collector's Edition of Saints Row 4. In a survey guarded by a pair of friendly-looking penguins, the publisher lists several prospective trinkets for you to rate, and in true Saints fashion, they range from functional to silly to "what in the name of all goodness is that?"
Can’t wait? Don’t wait! That’s the message from the folks at online retailer Green Man Gaming, who are giving over a third off your next purchase when you buy selected pre-order games. But, be warned: the offer will expire in a matter of days, so you need to act quickly.
As a storyteller, Irrational Creative Director Ken Levine isn't averse to addressing controversial themes—BioShock Infinite is a what-if scenario of American exceptionalism, racism, and deep-rooted class divides—but that doesn't mean he rejects constructive input. Speaking to OXM, Levine revealed how talks with religious members of Infinite's team caused him to change a certain character, not to gain approval, but to improve the story.
Early Christmas presents are always welcome, especially when they come in the form of major credit back on your game purchases. And that’s exactly what online retailers Green Man Gaming are offering with their latest, festive sherry-inspired offer.
Dota 2's Windrunner leads the charge on our cover this month in PC Gamer UK issue 254. We visited Bellevue to get inside development at Valve HQ as the Dota community prepares for The International tournament and Dota 2's long-awaited launch. Dota can be baffling to the uninitiated, but with a bit of knowledge anyone can enjoy the spectacle, chaos and depth of competitive play. That's why, in addition to our six page preview, we've created a six page guide to watching Dota 2 that will help demystify this fast-moving and famously complex esport. But that's not all, of course. We've also taken an early look at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, revisited some of the great old sim games kept alive by their amazing communities and put to paper Rich and Graham's two-year 300+ game Fifa rivalry. That's as well as our normal brace of previews, reviews and more. The issue is available now via the App Store, Google Play or Zinio. If you prefer the weight of a glossy tome in your hands, you can subscribe to get each issue delivered to your door. Read on to find out what else lies within.
