Official Xbox Magazine has shared the first screenshot and details for Dead Island: Riptide.
The screenshot above shows a two characters escaping some zombies on a motorboat, a new transportation mode available in the sequel. This motorboat acts as a weapon as well, with the ability to dice up zombie bodies whilst travelling through the water. A bit like running them over in the cars available in the first game.
Dead Island: Riptide will be set in a different part of the tropical island setting of Banoi that we saw in the previous game. Also, all four characters in the first game will be back once again. Players will be able to import their character from Dead Island into Riptide, so perhaps all weapon customisations and stats will be available too? As well as this, Riptide will include new zombies and weapons.
Gameplay is going to be much of the same melee-focused combat of the first game. Dead Island: Riptide's release date has not been announced as of yet.
