Dead Island Riptide Game Details
Having survived the ordeals of the infestation on the once beautiful island resort of Banoi, our group of survivors thought they had finally found a safe place to escape from this terrifying nightmare. But they were wrong. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board. Suddenly they find themselves struggling for their lives again with all hope drowning in the rising waves.
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 skill set. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed, since terrible, new, and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.
In new hub-defense missions, the co-op teamwork skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncomingonslaughts 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 team experience.
Developed by Techland, Dead Island Riptide will be released in 2013 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, for the Xbox 360game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and for Windows PC.
