*NEW "Dead Island: Riptide" Trailer

Deep Silver today released a trailer for the next installment in the Dead Island franchise: "Dead Island: Riptide" which will be released in 2013.
Dead Island - Riptide: When all hope is lost...

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...

Dead Island achieved something rather spectacular last year. It created one of the most powerful trailers ever seen across not only video games, but movies and television as well. it’s told-backwards story of a family torn apart by zombie horror is something that still sticks with me to this day, and I’ll be damned if I don’t play that piano track every so often when I’m looking for something dramatic.

Now with the sequel on the way in 2013, Dead Island: Riptide, they’re trying to do it again. It’s not even close to the original trailer, but again it’s a pretty heartwrenching little spot (that I feel could have benefitted from another minute or so of set-up).

Below is the original trailer for the first installment of the Dead Island Franchise:
