Dead Island: Riptide has received its debut trailer, which shares the somber tone and gentle piano soundtrack of the award-winning first trailer for the original game in the series.

Dead Island: Riptide's debut trailer, which hit today, shares the somber tone and gentle piano soundtrack of the award-winning first trailer for the original game in the series.

The title, which was revealed last month, takes players back to the zombie-infested island of Palanai in the Banoi archipelago, which has undergone quite a bit of terrestrial changes since the series' first installment. Now, large swaths of the island are buried under the waters of a deadly monsoon, causing all kinds of structural damage, and wrecking tons of ships in its wake — including the craft of the unfortunate couple seen below.

Check out our Gamescom preview to learn more about the changes that are coming in the sequel, and watch the trailer below. Sensitive viewers may want to prep some sort of eye-drying implement.
