In too deep

It was always going to be difficult for Techland to match the announcement trailer that essentially ensured the original Dead Island’s commercial success. As such, it’s not especially surprising that this debut Dead Island: Riptide short doesn’t quite elicit the same response.

The video adopts a similar formula to its predecessor, with a harrowing scene set to the lonely sounds of a soulless piano ditty. It just doesn’t quite have that same spark – which is ironic, considering the events in the final moments of the footage.

Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments section below.
