Publisher Deep Silver has released the debut trailer for Dead Island: Riptide.
The CGI trailer, 'When all hope is lost', paints a grim picture and aims to pull on the heartstrings by showing a couple's last moments as zombies close in around them.
Deep Silver says: "Furious monsoon rainstorms have laid waste to the island of Palanai in the Banoi archipelago, waters have risen and caused a flood disaster - because of this and the raging zombie invasion, a rescue mission for the survivors seems to be without prospect of success. All hope seems to have been lost for the surviving humans."
Featuring a new character, skills, multiplayer features and hub defence missions, the sequel's set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2013. Check out more details and the first Dead Island: Riptide screenshots.
