Dead Island Riptide: New screens reveal 5th playable character, fresh location

Check out former US Navy man John Morgan and the town of Henderson

Deep Silver has released a new batch of Dead Island: Riptide details and screens.

John Morgan joins the original Dead Island's protagonists as a fifth playable character, while the town of Henderson will serve as a fresh location in the game. Here's the word straight from the horse's mouth, plus the screens:

For years John Morgan has trained himself - and become a master - in hand-to-hand combat. His career in the US Navy has not taken off as he originally had envisioned, so he spends his time as a cook on a military ship. Little does he know that soon he will have to bring his skills into practice when the ship nears the island of Palanai...


The town of Henderson is one of the new locations in Dead Island Riptide. Henderson is situated on the island of Palanai in the once beautiful Banoi archipelago. Palanai caters to ultra-wealthy yacht owners and eco-tourists looking to stay nearby to the island's untouched jungle. Palanai's center is the luxurious town of Henderson that has grown into a Mediterranean-looking port town.

After a monsoon has laid waste the Banoi archipelago the city lies partially flooded and its abandoned buildings are quickly falling into disrepair. The team of heroes will have to find high ground in order to steer clear of the waters, where unknown threats lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface.
