Excellent timing by Deep Silver for releasing the first cinematic trailer for Dead Island Riptide, because I’m actually in the middle of re-playing the first game. This obviously gets my close attention.
The trailer hits home again since it’s the same dramatic formula as seen the trailer for Dead Island, the one in which a little girl falls to her death during a attack in a hotel room. That one also won an award last year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The trailer for Riptide captures a moment shared by a couple inside a sailboat that’s about to be assaulted by a horde of hungry .
What happens after that is yours to find out since I don’t want to spoil the happy ending for you. Dead Island Riptide will be released in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.

The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.
