Today’s the day, kids! Hope you’ve got your zombie killin’ boots on because Dead Island: Riptide is now available at a store near you, and we have the skinny on whether or not this is a trip worth taking or just another ride around the block.
Read our Dead Island: Riptide review.
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.
A fifth character will join the team, with an all-new and unique skill set. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed since terrible new and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.
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 co-op mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic teamplay experience.
Dead Island Riptide releases April 23, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and for Windows PC.
