Deep Silver today announced that Dead Island Riptide, the second entry in the Dead Island franchise which reanimates the zombie terror in the original game, is out now in North America on April 23, 2013 - the game will arrive in the rest of the world on April 26th, 2012. Having survived the ordeals of the zombie infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi, the four survivors from Dead Island thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board.
Together with newcomer John Morgan they find themselves struggling for their lives again, stranded on the secluded island of Palanai with its luxurious town of Henderson surrounded by deep jungles and mangrove swamps.
