Dead Island

Dead Island (2011) was an unexpected success when Techland presented the game with a spectacular CGI(not real-time) trailer where you could see the interesting title premise: a vacation paradise, far from the usual darkness of the genre turns into a living hell when a zombie outbreak occurs. Techland was betting on a large-scale open world zombie game that is free to be explored, filled with monsters, and quests. Our main goal being survival and knowing that importance of our every shot counts due to a shortage of bullets.

The choice has no importance in how the story unfolds, but the gameplay mechanics will be different as each character has its skill tree.

Dead Island is a game series with a lot of work behind recreating to perfection a zombie apocalypse at a paradise-like vacation spot. All the component role gives you a tremendous amount of depth and value which makes you kill more and more zombies, so player gains more experience and the many challenges and achievements you gain unlock new abilities.

The protagonists of the first adventure go on a boat where they are not very welcomed, and after an event, they end up on an island that has suffered from the same outbreak. In Riptide there is a fifth protagonist, John Morgan, who specializes in close-range combat, players can also, import their profile from the first title. There is also a new climate system that adds variety weather effects to the expansion.



As far as I can remember, I've been surrounded by technology. My father bought us a Commodore 64 so I started playing games as a baby, following my passion with Amiga 500, then PC and so on. I love game related collectibles, and when I'm not collecting I review games, watch movies and TV Shows or you may catch me keeping a low profile at Game Events.
