New Dead Island DLC On The Way
Unlike the first Dead Island DLC, Bloodbath Arena, this new one actually sounds a little bit unique. The DLC is called Ryder White and if you beat the game I'm sorry you went through that whole thing but you will also recognize Ryder White as the name of the nemesis of the game's four main characters, the man you fight at the end. This DLC will put you into the shoes of Ryder White and will allow you to play him through his perspective. There will be several hours of a new single player campaign that will take you through parts of his story and shows what made him into the man you experience through the original game. The DLC will be coming out on February 1st, on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. There isn't an official price listed by them yet, but Kotaku is reporting that it will be $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points.
Several hours of gameplay for $10 doesn't sound like a very good deal, but if you really enjoyed the campaign story of Dead Island then this looks to be something worthwhile. You can check out more information on the game on their facebook page or main website. Also, if you are looking for some context on the game you can check out my Dead Island PC Review.
