Deep Silver today released a gameplay movie for Dead Island Riptide, showcasing this new entry to the Dead Island franchise which 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 skillset. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed, since terrible, new and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.
Dead Island Riptide will launch in North America on April 23, 2013, and in the rest of the world on April 26th, 2012.
