Deep Silver Announces “Ryder White” DLC for Dead Island

January 16, 2012 Written by Alex Osborn

If you’ve already managed to explore every nook and cranny of Dead Island’s detail-rich open-world, but are still hungry for more of the tropical paradise gone wrong, we’ve got great news for you. The game’s developer Deep Silver has just announced that a fresh batch of story-based content is on the way.

Appropriately dubbed “Ryder White”, the DLC will place gamers in the shoes of the title’s villain, Ryder White. For those that haven’t gotten a chance to play through the game in its entirety, we’ll keep the story details to a minimum. Just know that Colonel White does some pretty bad stuff in the main game that you the player must fight to fend off.

The downloadable content will provide a look into the story behind Ryder White and flesh out the motivations behind his drastic decisions. The pack will offer several hours of fresh story content as well as two new blueprints and weapons.

The Ryder White DLC pack will be available via PSN on January 31 for $9.99 in the US and February 1st for £7.99 in Europe.
