Deep Silver announced today a new mission-based DLC pack will be released for the best-selling action horror blockbuster, Dead Island.
The Ryder White DLC campaign follows the story and perspective of the main gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s antagonist character and allows players to experience the events on Banoi through his eyes.Ã‚Â Players will take on the role of Ryder White as a playable character in a single player campaign with several hours of gameplay as well as brand new weapon blueprints.
Developed by Techland, Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. The engaging survival-focused gameplay aspects are combined with a rich and immersive storyline in which a small group of people find themselves in a tropical paradise turned into total chaos and carnage after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the playerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I always like to think of antagonist characters not as evil, but simplyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.misunderstood,Ã¢â‚¬Â evil Marketing & PR Tarantula Aubrey Norris argued while sharpening her talons and drinking the blood of the innocent from a jewel encrusted chalice.Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ryder White was obviously suffering from a massive case of beast mood in Dead Island, and I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only fair we got to learn his side of the story.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Featuring four customizable, unique character classes and engrossing role-playing elements combined with an intense four player co-op experience, Dead Island stands out as one of the most comprehensive zombie experiences to date.
Dead IslandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ryder White DLC will be available on January 31, 2012, for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 system and on February 1, 2012, for 800 MSP/$9.99 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and Steam.
