The latest gameplay footage of Dead Island: Riptide introduces new zombie types and familiar faces from the first game as they find themselves back on a zombie infested island.

While in lockup they meet a gruff soldier who was part of huge humanitarian search and rescue operation. The trailer goes on to describe how the virus releases once more, introducing the premise of Dead Island: Riptide.
