Deep Silver Releases Dead Island: Riptide PAX Footage
By Joseph Christ on January 24th, 2013 (7 comments)
During the last PAX Prime we had the opportunity to see some behind closed doors footage of Dead Island: Riptide before having a great chat with their producer. This is that footage.
It shows off some of the new features that Riptide will be including in the game such as the heavy emphasis on boats, water, and base defense. There's some pretty neat stuff here, and it's safe to say that if you were a fan of the original Dead Island you'll probably enjoy this one as well. I think the only issue is really how much like the first Dead Island this looks. The graphics look mostly untouched, the HUD has minimal changes and overall Deep Silver is going to have to show some really great content in the future if they are going to convince a majority of gamers to plunk down the cash for another go.
Personally, I'm a fan of the original Dead Island and I'm rooting hard for Riptide as well. There's still a lot more content we have yet to see and I'm looking forward to whats coming next.
