New DLC is coming for Dead Island, and instead of another survival mode like the last DLC, Bloodbath Arena, this one will actually flesh out the thin story of the island of Banoi's zombie problem. The best part? You get to be the bad guy. Colonel Ryder White, the main antagonist of Dead Island, has a rather tragic backstory that you get hints of when you play through to the end of the game and now you get to see how it all happened.
"Ryder White's Campaign," as it is called on the disc, will be single player only (which makes sense) and will feature new weapons, blueprints, and skill trees. Developers Deep Silver haven't revealed much more than that except to say that the story will give you a lot of insight into why Col. White did what he did and that you'll see him portrayed as a military man and a loving husband. Interesting.
"Ryder White's Campaign" will be available February 1st for 800 MSP ($10).
