Deep Silver has announced that Dead Island will be getting a new story DLC that focuses on the game's antagonist, Ryder White. Deep Silver promises we'll be getting "several hours" of content which will undoubtedly shed light on our main bad guy. The DLC will let us play as White through some of his most formative events on the island. 

The official word from Deep Silver is:

"This time the player will get the chance to play as Ryder White, the antagonist of the main game; learn more about his motivations and why, from his point of view, he did what he had to do. This fresh take on the Dead Island story shows Ryder White both as a military man and a loving husband."

The DLC will be available on February 1st, and it will cost 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360/$10.00 on PSN.

So, anybody planning on going to the worst vacation spot ever? Again?
