Deep Silver has announced that Dead Island: Riptide, the upcoming not-a-sequel to Dead Island, will have a fifth playable character too.

And… that’s all we know about the fifth character. That he exists. However, Deep Silver’s creative director Sebastian Reichert did talk about Riptide’s story.

He told VG247 that the story in Dead Island: Riptide will be much darker as compared to the original Dead Island.

“For example, in Dead Island the beauty of the island was often created by man – the Beach Resort, Hotel, etc. – and the terror was created by the zombies,” he said. “This main design theme has changed. Palanai is an island full of natural beauty, for example, wonderful waterfalls, contrasted by natural destruction caused by storms, monsoons and rain. And of course the zombies.”

He went on to talk about the “darkness” of the plot. he said: “Plotwise, ‘darker’ is good description of where we’re heading, but of course we stay bright and beautiful on the outside. We are taking a very special step in this installment and we are looking forward to see how the fans react to it.”
