It's nearly time to travel back to the blood-soaked shores and ravaged city of Dead Island (Xbox 360)
. New story DLC was officially announced today, though savvy game menu navigators will have spotted the DLC in the menus long ago. Still, until now we didn't know much about the add-on, titled "Ryder White's Campaign".
Ryder White, as those of you who have played the game will remember, is a non-playable character from the main story of Dead Island
. Without giving away spoilers (and please don't do so in the comments), it's safe to say Ryder has a story of his own to tell, separate from our ragtag group of survivors we are already familiar with.
The DLC will focus on what Ryder had been doing in the events before and during our original story, and it shows his dual identities as a military man and a loving husband. Techland also announced new blueprints would be included to allow you to craft some deadly new weapons.
The developers are calling the new content a single-player campaign, so it appears that four-player co-op isn't an option for this DLC. You can prep your Microsoft Points balance in anticipation of the new DLC, as it hits the download market on February 1st for 800 MSP.
