Dead Island: Riptide’s new character and setting revealed

Dead Island: Riptide

By on November 6, 2012 at 4:41 pm

It was announced last week that Dead Island: Riptide will be released on April 26 in Australia, and we also knew that there will be a new character and setting for the game.

Now, in a press release, the new character and setting have been revealed. The newest character to join the troupe is one John Morgan, a failed Navy Seal, or Marine or some such, that has conveniently been training himself in hand-to-hand combat. “His career in the US Navy has not taken off as he originally had envisioned, so he spends his time as a cook on a military ship,” the release explains.

“Little does he know that soon he will have to bring his skills into practice when the ship nears the island of Palanai.”

Speaking of Palanai, the island’s main town Henderson is the game’s new setting. Previously a resort for wealthy vacationers, now it is a hell-hole ravaged not only by hordes of the undead but monsoons as well. Many buildings and streets are flooded or destroyed, leaving the survivors in a less-than-ideal zombie-killing setting.

So, what? He’s a character that specializes extremely short ranged combat?

Isn’t that like, the complete opposite of what you would want during a zombie apocalypse?

 

Is he Steven Seagal?

 

Hi, I’m Steven Seagal and you are on the set of my new movie, Crouching Cops, Hidden Badges.

Love Steven Seagal movies lol they are just fun, love parodies of him even more though.

 

People still play this?

 

Looks like Wolverine to me.
