Dead Island: Riptide will release on April 23, 2013, on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Players will once again battle waves of the undead set against a beautiful island background. Read on to check out the brand new reveal trailer that showcases some of the horrifying content ahead!
Having survived the ordeals of the zombie infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi depicted in the original Dead Island game, our group of survivors thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. But they were wrong. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board. Suddenly they find themselves struggling for their lives again with all hope drowning in the rising waves.
With invigorating new elements infused into a proven mix, Dead Island: Riptide will reanimate the zombie terror in the original game. A monsoon has hit the once beautiful archipelago and heavy rainstorms have laid waste to large areas of the islands. The city of Henderson and jungle areas on the island of Palanai were flooded leaving boats as the only remaining way of transportation. Dynamic weather conditions will force the team members to adapt to changing visibility conditions.
In new hub defense missions the co-op teamplay skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncoming Zombie onslaughts and to protect the humans in these sanctuaries. New communication features in coop mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic teamplay experience.
Dead Island: Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013, in the USA and Canada and on April 26, 2013, in the rest of the world for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, for Xbox 360® and for Windows PC.
