October 30, 2012 – LARKSPUR, CA – Deep Silver announced today that a pre-order program for a special North American edition of Dead Island™ Riptide, the follow-up to the 2011 global smash horror hit Dead Island, is now available for players who preorder Riptide early at participating retailers. Launching in North America on April 23, 2013, Dead Island Riptide brings more epic zombie thriller action to fans with additional gameplay mechanics, all-new gorgeous locales to explore, more types of zombies to provide constant threats, an additional character class and the best co-operative zombie action experience in gaming.
The Dead Island Riptide Special Edition puts tempting extras in your survival arsenal including a pack of exclusive weapon mods (for more creative undead destruction!), a digital strategy map (for the best expert advice on how to own the approaching hordes!), and a unique character skin (looks good and helpful for recognition among the undead.). Supplies are limited and will be sold on a first-come, first serve basis.
Over four million players around the world survived the ordeals of the zombie infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi, and our group of survivors thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. They were wrong.
Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013 in North America for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for Windows PC.
