Dead Island Riptide picks up after you escape in Dead Island, making this a true sequel. Sweet freedom isn't as close as you thought. The storm you were trying to evade sends the helicopter tumbling into another zombie infested island.
Here's a piece of our Dead Island sequel preview:
"Our demo threw us into about 6-10 hours into the new game as our two-man team lugs around a chain gun to a semi-submerged church out in the middle of the swap. As it turns out, the rains didn’t just bring the original characters to the new island. You’re going to be waist deep in water and the undead. A returning cast of characters means that players of the original title will get a leg up on the rest of the gamers by being able to transfer their characters over."
