Dead Island: Riptide Summary
Deep Silver creative director Guido Eickmeyer hinted during a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) that Dead Island 3 is in development.
The latest Humble Bundle deal features Deep Silver games including Saints Row 2, Saints Row the Third, Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, Risen 2: Dark Waters and Sacred 2.
Codemasters' virtual tyre screecher GRID 2 maintains first pole position in the UK all format chart for another week, with FIFA 13 equally holding onto 2nd. Dontnod's Remember Me enters 3rd, if memory serves. Bethesda's Legendary bundle of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came 4th, which is most impressive for a bunch of DLCs duck tapped together. Far Cry 3 was 5th, followed by Dead Island: Riptide.
The first trailer to be released for Dead Island developer Techland's Dying Light has been posted online by publisher Warner Brothers. In this CGI teaser we get a glimpse at the game's free-running ambitions. Dying Light is Techland's sandbox zombie survivor where day/night cycles play a crucial role as we scavenge by day and fight off hordes by night. Exploration is a key focus in the game.
Codemasters' GRID 2 has drifted onto the UK all format chart and pinched 1st place, which bests the original that five years ago debuted 2nd. However launch sales are 29% less than its predecessor. FIFA 13 hogged 2nd, followed by Dead Island: Riptide, Far Cry 3 and Resident Evil: Revelations. The only other new entry was Fuse, which nearly fizzled out as it just managed to register at 37.
