The highly-anticipated sequel to "Dead Island" finally has a release date as Deep Silver announced today that "Dead Island: Riptide" will be available for PS3 players on April 23, 2013 (the game will also be available for the Xbox 360 and Windows PC). The company also revealed a Special Edition already available for pre-order that includes exclusive weapon mods, a digital strategy map, and a unique character skin. "Dead Island" was a surprising smash both critically and commercially, offering something new to a genre that many people considered pretty, pardon the pun, dead. "Riptide" promises new mechanics, new locations, and of course, new ways to bash a zombie brain. Watch for more coverage on About.com as it's announced.
