We’ve known of the existence of a sequel called Dead Island: Riptide for a while, but we haven’t seen anything beyond a handful of screenshots for the game. This morning, however, Deep Silver released a nine-minute video showing off a mission from the upcoming game.
A sort of tower defense mission is the centerpiece for this video, with the added twist of being able to forage for supplies and weapons beforehand. I don’t remember much about the first game besides the RPG system, crafting, and melee combat. The sequel retains all of that, though it remains to be seen what else it will bring to the table to entice the fans to pick it up. Still, what is shown here already looks pretty darn good for pre-alpha footage. Check out the footage below.
