Dead Island Provides DLC Worth Buying

Dead Island Provides DLC Worth Buying

by TaviaJanuary 27, 2012

Often we see games releasing additional downloadable content that seems a lot like levels they held back so they could sell them to us later. Or, the same old game with a newish map or weak twist. Deal Island is giving us something different: An entirely new playable character and story line. And get this, it’s the antagonist (I’ll leave the name out to avoid spoiling)!

If you found the story in Dead Island interesting then you’ll love this DLC. Personally, I though the story and the writing were some of the strongest parts of the game. I wanted to listed to the characters at the selection screen tell me the entire saga from start to finish. I was torn between choosing a character type and a character.

In this DLC add on, you get a more personal look at our antagonist and find out why the character was driven to destroy this beautiful island paradise (and maybe the world).

The DLC will be available on February 01, 2012 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. It will be available for 800 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace or for $9.99 USD on PSN and Steam.

    I don’t know, unless I hear about more fixes I can’t see myself playing again anytime soon. My game got a corrupt file about 80% done, I can”t believe they had a single file save on a open world game. Even before that that I was struggling to stay involved with the story when I had to spend 60-70% of my time either maintaining my weapons or back tracking to find a bench halfway through a mission because all my weapons were shot.

    I not too long ago put in some downloadable content for Battlefield: Bad Company, but I was not pleased with it, and I would genuinely like to free of charge up that five hundred mb (approx.) Any Person have any Ideas on how to uninstall that dlc, but preserve almost everything else?

    I know it’s possible, but how and where do I get the downloadable content for guitar hero3 for wii?

  • Harriet W

    I don’t know many people on xbox live and would like to play Fable 3 with other players. However, all the orbs that I see, when I try to join their game or they try to join mine we have different downloadable content and it won’t allow us to join each others game. Is there any either way to find people? The only downloadable content I have is the free yule hat, the free soldier outfit and the free weapons.

  • Erfan

    so i got dead island and i just reinstalled it after the patch. i played for about 20 min and then my screen goes out completely and the fan in my computer gets super loud. the largest fan that i have in my computer is the one on my nvidia GTX 460 graphics card so im guessing maybe thats the issue? i have a quad core 2.4ghz processor and 8gb of ram. any suggestions?

    I have already tried the Dead Island mod tool 1.9 but it didn’t work. I am using Logan if that matters.
    I need to lower my level because I want the skill points but I want to be level 2.

  • MentallyCryppled

    The character is called Logan & is from Dead Island on PS3. There is a tribal type tattoo on his left arm & I’m wondering if anyone knows where I can get this design? Thanks.

    I got Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for XBOX 360, and it says XBOX Live at the top right of the game. Is it playable on Live, or is it Downloadable content?

  • Zanto

    I have the special edition version of dead island with the codes but i don’t know how to get the content, and can’t find it in the marketplace

  • Matthew S

    I play dead island on the ps3 and I have a headset to talk to other people but they cant hear me. I can hear them just fine though. It works with other games just fine but not with dead island.
