Release date announced for Dead Island Riptide

Dead Island sequel heading for an April release

Deep Silver has announced a full release date for Techland's zombie FPS bash 'em up follow up, Dead Island Riptide.

Dead Island Riptide was revealed earlier in the year as a follow up to last year's impressively successful Dead Island.

Two versions of the game have been revealed for pre-order. The standard version will net pre-orderers an exclusive pack of weapon mods allowing for even more gory ways to dispatch the undead.

The Special Retailers Edition will also include a new alternative character skin on top of the weapon mods pack available with standard pre-orders. This edition will only be available at selected retailers.

Dead Island Riptide will be out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on April the 26th with the standard edition of the game set to retail at around 29.99 GBP.
