Dead Island DLC Next Month

Deep Silver announces Ryder White, a new DLC pack due next month for Dead Island, Techland's zombie game. Here's word on the pack, which is due on February 1st for Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3:

16th January 2012 - Hampshire, UK/... Deep Silver today announced the upcoming release of a brand new story DLC for the award-winning game Dead Island.

This DLC offers a unique new perspective into the incidents in the main story of Dead Island: This time the player will get the chance to play as Ryder White, the antagonist of the main game; learn more about his motivations and why, from his point of view, he did what he had to do. This fresh take on the Dead Island story shows Ryder White both as a military man and a loving husband.

The DLC stars Ryder White as a newly playable character and offers a single player campaign with several hours of story content with twists and turns that will shed new light on the game’s happenings. Two blueprints and weapons will further expand the already impressive arsenal of Dead Island.

The DLC will be available on February 01, 2012 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. It will be available for 800 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace or for £7.99 on PSN and Steam.

If you get this game for any more than $5, you were ripped off.

I know some people have had a good time with it. However the percentage of people who've found they just purchased a broken piece of shit is somewhere around the majority of the audience. Friends and I picked the game up during the steam christmas sale. We played for about 3-4 hours, absolutely never making more than 20 minutes of progress. Each and every one of us crashed out repeatedly. The four of us literally never had more than 5 minutes of stability where all of us were present online together. The game is a broken piece of shit. I've never been so appalled at a release in my life. the shit they got away with in this game, and it's still selling, and they're making DLC for the fucking thing (as opposed to fixing it).

Even if you're one of those who've had a good time with the game, please think of your fellow gamers and the development and consumer situation at large, and just warn everyone away from this piece of shit. The four of us ultimately guilted steam into giving a refund (developers would not answer their support email after a month of trying). This was only after I tried to see what I could get out of the game in single player, and after 10 minutes of playing alone (the game does not crash as much offline), I died and respawned within a locked boss room that I did not have the key for.


I cursed out loud when I read that they were releasing DLC for this pile. Fuck these people.
