Dead Island: Riptide Release Date, Special Editions Announced

Looks like gamers will get another chance at being eaten alive by zombies on April 23, 2013. Dead Island: Riptide, the follow-up to 2011’s Dead Island, is said to pick up directly after the events of the original with four survivors finding themselves on the zombie infested Palanai island.

Deep Silver also announced two special editions for the game. The Pre-order Edition will feature an exclusive pack of weapon mods “that allows even more, manifold ways to dispose of the ghastly zombie hordes on Palanai island.” In addition to the weapon mods, the Special Retailers Edition will include an exclusive alternate character skin and box art.
