They thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Their fate took a turn for the worse.

The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.

Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition

Some information about the game

Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

A No-HUD mod is what an every Dead Island fan is looking for. Would be cool if someone had made it for Riptide.

How about making the combat more ******* enjoyable? The guns feel so damn weak. Also, make the kick have a longer cooldown/ less op.

Dead Island Riptide Scripting Competition Wishlist: (If the Modding Gods see this...)


-More Weather Cycles (ei. Monsoon Rains -> Fog/Mist Evaporation -> Sunny -> Cloudy -> Light Rain ->Repeat)

-Realistic Weapon Stats (ei. Base (wrench, crowbar, etc) weapons more durable vs. Gizmodded up weapons), Guns prone to jamming, misfire etc. Can be modified for attachments (Flashlights, Scopes, Lasers Sights, silencers, etc... I'm sure that military ship would have some gear. Night Vision!!! Need to do something with all those batteries I find.

-More Recipe's!!! ei. Soap+gasoline=Napalm (...don't try this, was an example...)

-Boats waayyyyyyy toooo slooooowww, pointless unless objective in flooded areas, these vehicles need a gas meter that needs refill at various gas stations on the island.

-Zombies: More types needed ei L4D, Resident Evil They stay true to "Logic"-al Lore, Infected "runners" more susceptible to Poison, Fire, Electricity; Dead "walkers" immune to poison, slower death to fire, and get stunned by electricity no damage unless to the head.

-Economy is all wrong... granted the world isn't infected... yet, and some idiots will try to "capitalize" on the situation, most survivors will trade what they scavenged. Most valuables are food & medicine which "sellers" will want most in exchange for services "repair" "create" or "supply" (info to Locations or what they safeguard in their boarded up "fort/shops" No infinite Items! This is suppose to be survival horror right?

I'm making my own survival horror universe, and I believe what the fans of this genre want is more realism, options/interactions & an open world.

Well no modding tools is bad, true, but at least they let people mod.
I still think that if more games were openly moddable (unlike what EA does) it would be great. If you look at the kotor series even with the lack of modding tools there were great mods. Sometime, adapting developper tools to the quality of a public release is too much work, sometime license wise, it's impossible.
Don't take me wrong though, I like official tools but don't tell me modifing text files is hard...

Also there was a level editor for dead island 1 (unoficial) it had bugs and all but it was never used in a mod as far as I know.

It would be great to have official tools, but at least we can mod...

Its Dead Island with small improvements to combat, coop and lootings but its even buggier and glitchy than the previous game. Although it is alot harder... which I would have liked if it wasn't so unfairly hard. It uses the whole waves of enemies while you defend a area (and in some instances infinite respawning enemies, these areas that you have to run passed which you might realize and fight till you die). The original game had maybe 1 instance of them both, here we get 3-4 in a shorter game…
