Bryce is one the four new Main Characters in Dead Island: Epidemic.

In-game Bryce can be seen in three forms. Survivor, Armored and Mutated. Each form has different abilities and strategy.


The undead were swarming the beaches, which meant getting to the waves for some quality surfing was out of the question. Bryce built himself some improvised armor and hunkered down for battle, hoping to liberate the best spots for his buddies.
— Armored Bryce's lore

Armored Bryce is a versatile assault character. His strength lies in quick bursts of damage and the skill to catch enemies running away.


Bryce is a young man with short blonde hair and a goatee. He has tattoos on both of his arms and his left leg. He wears a silver long sleeve swim shirt, a red tank top with a shark fin printed on the front, white shorts, and black swim shoes. He also wears orange tinted sunglasses, a yellow backpack, a black knife holster on his left thigh, and plates of metal with small spikes on his lower legs.
