So I have been in this forum since day one (although my posts may not show this since I lurk more than post) and I have really been enjoying the new DLC content. But a long time ago, before the following was even announced (and maybe even an idea at the time), I made a thread talking about creating a new DLC that would let the player enter the world of Harran from a different characters point of view. The idea was similar to the Ryder White campaign in the original Dead Island. I made suggestions about making it about Jade, Brecken, Rais, or even Troy. A more active member of the community sided with my idea, but told me that these characters would be pointless since the game tells about their past, so they wouldn't be fun to experience. This poster actually suggested making a DLC starring Amir and showing his contributions to the Tower before he saves Cranes life at the cost of his. We never get to know a lot about this character other than that he was a former GRE operative who seemed to have a huge role amongst the Tower residents. That thread really got into the idea about playing as Amir and experiencing his backstory instead of just hearing about it. So, i guess with that being said, please don't leave us with the following and bug fixes. Please make at least one more DLC for the fans who care about the story more than the zombie killing. It can be short and linear for all I care (just like Ryder White. As fan of this game from so long ago, I feel this is the one DLC that would mean a lot to the community as well can be labeled "we listened and we gave our fans what they asked for".
Hey guys, so I was thinking not too long ago about how back in Dead Island you guys made a DLC where you would play as Ryder White in order to see more of the other side of the story. Although it was very linear, it was also very cool. What I am aiming for in saying is that making an update letting you play the lives of the other characters would be really cool. For starters, I would love to play as Brecken since the original game trailer showed him traversing Harran instead of Crane. Creating a story as to how The Tower was created and what Brecken went through would be just awesome especially if it would include everything from the original trailer. Also the whole thing with the Brecken and the doctor's off screen relationship could be implemented as well ;p Jades story would also be critical in developing the story of the game too. Since we don't really work with her in game, it would be great to see what she was upto before Crane showed up and what she was doing while Crane was doing his work and then while she was hiding from him in Old Town. Rias story would be interesting to see. Obviously it would have to take place before the main campaign. It would be similar to Brecken's story of how things came to be. The last story I could think of that could be added would be something about Troy, but she does't have any major holes in the original story that Brecken, Jade, and Rais have. These could be added as a mix of free and paid DLC's and something I feel like a lot of active players would love to see and players who have just quit playing due to being over-repatative would return for an all new experience. This thread is open to suggestions on what others would like to see new in-game as well as for devs to say what they think of doing a throwback to this kind of expansion like we had in Dead Island.
So you all are probably expecting to see the high survivor weapon issue being fixed and I hear that rumors of gold tier weapons. Now this is kind of both question and potentially a request for the devs. Remember in Dead Island how each class of weapon had a specialty orange weapon? Like the hammer was MC Hammer, we had Pick of Destiny, Zeds Demise, etc. Are the the rumors of the Gold tier aiming at just another level of weaponry or are these going to be something fun like this? I haven't seen anything like this yet in the game other than Korek and EXPcalibur and would love to see some kind of throwback towards legitimate legendary weapons like this. Since there hasn't really been any of this and if this is an idea that hasn't been brought up yet, I think that a large part of the community might enjoy something like this.
