Dead Island: Character's Fury Skill & Speciality

Updated on September 13, 2011

Dead Island is an open-world first person video game that takes place on a tropical island called Banoi that is inhabited with infected zombies. The game can be played cooperatively with a total of 4 players. The game has role playing elements like the ability to level up your character. Choosing your character in Dead Island is a chose you must make wisely. Each character has different weapon specialty's and fury skills. The game will be easier if you use weapons that your character is good with.

Your character will level up by killing enemy zombies and completing quests. Weapons found in the game will also have levels. Only weapons that are lower or the same level as you can be used. Higher level weapons can be picked up, but can not be equipped until you reach that level.

Note that you can have the same characters in a cooperative game. For example, if you choose Sam B & your friend chooses Sam B, you will still be able to play together.

Playing Dead Island by yourself will include the other characters in cut scenes, but you will not have AI computer characters to help you. Dead Island is best played with other players because you will face large groups of zombies.
