Dead Island: Riptide release to be celebrated with zombie-themed wedding, developer searching for the couple

Dead Island developer Deep Silver is looking for a UK-based couple to be the official Dead Island: Riptide zombie bride and groom as part of the events planned for the game's UK launch, the company announced today on Facebook.

The developer is searching for an engaged pair of Dead Island superfans to be zombified for a "Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony" during the game's launch events. Deep Silver will also host a Riptide-themed official wedding for the winning couple and give them a honeymoon in the Caribbean.

Applicants must record a short video explaining why they are the best candidates for the wedding and share the link on the official Dead Island: Riptide Zombie Wedding page by Feb. 14 in order to be considered. A group of Deep Silver staff will review the videos and contact a small number of semi-finalists for one last round of consideration. The winning couple will be announced in the beginning of March, about a month before the game launches in April.

Dead Island: Riptide will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on April 23 in North America and April 26 in Europe.
