We’ve been hearing for some time about a new mystery character in Dead Island Riptide and now we have some info about him. His name is John Morgan and he’s the fifth playable character that can join the team in addition to the protagonists from the original game. For years he has trained himself – and become a master – in hand-to-hand combat. His career in the US Navy has not taken off as he originally had envisioned, so he spends his time as a cook on a military ship (how far he’s fallen). Little does he know that soon he will have to bring his skills into practice when the ship nears the island of Palanai.
A few other interesting factoids include the fact that Morgan can be played through the entire game just like Xian Mei, Sam B and the others. The John Morgan character was inspired by some very popular fan mods for the original DI that featured hand to hand combat. As most of you know, there is also an all new island to explore with its own locations! Palanai’s center is the luxurious town of Henderson that has grown into a Mediterranean-looking port town.
So that’s it folks, we are sure we will find out even more about John Morgan as time goes on but we want to know what you think? Do you plan to stick with your favorite character from the last game or are you planning to give good old John a try?
