Rapper Sam B. Fights The Zombie Horde
It seems that, like a relentless Zombie horde, you just can’t escape updates and screenshots regarding forthcoming Undead action/RPG Dead Island from Techland and Deep Silver. In their latest batch of images they focus on another one of the four playable characters, one-hit wonder Rapper Sam B. It seems that Sam will be a Tank class character, a power-based type which will be familiar to regular RPG gamers. The other three playable characters are Xian Mei – a Chinese, speed-based character who is a resort employee and was featured in the last screenshot update, and Logan & Purna, who as of yet have not been fully revealed.
A one-hit-wonder rap star of fading fame, Sam B was booked by the Royal Palms Resort Hotel to perform his well known song “Who do You Voodoo?” at a high profile hotel party. He gladly took the chance to play this gig. Once strong, self-confident and proud, Sam B has had a troubled past and a history of drug and alcohol abuse, as his private life became caught in a haze of fake friends and bad advisors. Trying to pick up the pieces and earn some extra cash, he suddenly finds himself surrounded by a whole lot of different problems…
Dead Island is due for release in 2011, but there is no confirmed timeframe. It is currently planned to be made available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
