    Dead Island Riptide emerging in 2013 - GameSpot.com

    From what info I gathered, it seems to be running on a lot of the same game engine. However adding new stuff like weather, and things to the mix. They are claiming it takes place the same time as the other Dead Island, just on another island in the area.

    I'd be interested, as long as they make sure it doesn't have that save glitch right off the bat.

    You mean releasing the dev-build on Steam? "Press Y for no-clip"
    fun times

    I should try to finish a run of the first at some point.

    No, I mean the auto save glitch, haha. The one that doesn't save the game and you lose hours of play time. It was a horrible glitch that made me delay playing for weeks.

    Awesome. Hopefully it won't be as buggy as the first one.

    Yeah, I had the glitch a couple times, pisses me off to play for 6 hours and find that it didn't save. Since they fixed it, I still play it on occasion, I have fun with it, got my Sam B to level 60.

    I am rather interested to see these new additions. I remember a lot of people complained of there being no weather changes or time of day.

    Am I the only one who hoped that Riptide was just a mod so you could have Percy Jackson's sword pen to fight off zombies?

    Maybe. I never could get into the first one, but loved the idea.

    I love zombies and I love open world action games, but Dead Island was so boring and repetitive. I could not get into it no matter how hard I tried. Maybe this one will improve things.

    Hopefully there will be more things to do and less roaming around. Games like Fallout and Skyrim make open world roaming fun, Dead Island was just boring.

    Dead Island had SOME free roaming, but they based it all around the storyline. And essencially, it is a rinse and repeat to max your level. The rinse and repeat only works so many times. I may have played through 5 times to max Sam B at level 60.
