Dead Island: Riptide will stumble groaning into the sunlight on April 23 next year in the US and Canada, and April 26 everywhere else. Hopefully a copy will wash up on Banoi island. The survivors could do with a little bit of genre awareness after the first adventure, which saw them traipsing right into the middle of a massive town swarming with undead sorts. But why bother with the outskirts when you've got an electric katana?
The sequel will move the action away from the island, onto a boat, which I'm sure will remain a completely safe place for the duration of the game. A new character, new vehicles, more weapon proficiencies and "hub defense game mechanics" will all feature. You can pre-order Riptide now from the
Dead Island site
. You'll find the CGI teaser trailer for Riptide below, but is it as good as the original
Dead Island trailer
that got everyone excited back in 2011?
