For those who haven’t heard, a sequel to the Deep Silver and Techland zombie apocalypse survival game, Dead Island, is on the way.
Just like the first trailer for Dead Island, which took the internet by storm upon its release (so much so that it led to a battle to acquire the movie rights well before the game arrived—later optioned by Lionsgate), a beautiful and haunting cinematic kicks things off for the sequel, which is titled Dead Island: Riptide.
The trailer isn’t quite as good as the one we saw for the first game, but still, it’s an excellent trailer well worth watching. You can watch it below now.
Dead Island wasn’t the best video game ever made, but it was, in my opinion, the best zombie game ever made. Sure some will cast votes for the Dead Rising and Left 4 Dead games, but those don’t really stack up in my book. Dead Island is a first-person zombie game that throws you into an open world, giving fans of the walking dead a chance to put themselves into a zombie apocalypse situation and see how they do. If nothing else, just the zombie killing alone is addictive enough to play.
We can only hope Riptide is at least as good…if not better.
