I think every horror fan secretly wishes at one time or another that the zombie apocalypse would break out. The idea of having the opportunity to “Ash” up and kick some zombie ass is pretty appealing. But it doesn’t look as though that’s gonna happen. So what’s the next best thing? Finding a kick ass zombie video game where you can kick much ass. Enter DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE. DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE is now available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC and in it players get to step into the zombie infested island of Palanai in this 4-player co-op survival horror game. Check out the press release and then the trailer below:
From the Press Release
With invigorating new elements infused into a proven mix, Dead Island Riptide 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.
In a new hub defense missions the co-op teamplay skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncoming Zombie onslaughts and to protect the humans in these sanctuaries.
New communication features in co-op mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic teamplay experience.
