Dead Island: Riptide Detailed, First Screenshots Released


Deep Silver has released the following description and screenshots for their follow-up to 2011’s Dead Island.

The survivors of the zombie-apocalypse on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship. When a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.

Devastated by a monsoon, the island of Palanai is crawling with new zombie mutations. A fifth character with an all-new skillset will join the team, providing much-needed support. Additional multiplayer communication features and brand new hub defense missions will test the survivor’s teamplay skills.

Dead Island: Riptide is set to release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in 2013.
