Dead Island™ Riptide: Drowning Hope

Deep Silver reveals details about new title in the Dead Island franchise

LARKSPUR, CA – AUGUST 31, 2012 -- Deep Silver today revealed the first details about the next installment in the Dead Island™ franchise, coming to stores in 2013.

Having survived the ordeals of the zombie 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.
