Fourth Dead Island Character Revealed

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
Those of you who have been following Dead Island closely since it picked up steam earlier this year have probably already been introduced to three of the four characters in the game, Logan, the troubled ex-athlete, Sam B, the one-hit-wonder rapper, and Xian Mei, a resident receptionist on the doomed island.

Today, Techland has revealed the fourth and final character option. Her name is Purna, and she will just as quickly steal your stare as she will cut out your eyes.

Her story revolves around a former career in the Sydney Police Department where she took matters into her own hands when a wealthy but twisted individual couldn't be charged for the crimes he committed (Dexter, anyone?). From there she left the force and traveled the world as a bodyguard for VIPs. She appears to be considerably more prepared for the apocalypse than the other characters.

Build your safehouses now in anticipation of Dead Island, hitting stores September 6th in the US, and September 9th everywhere else.
