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.

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.
