The zombie craze has yet to slow down in the videogame world, with the launch of Techland's next title in the Dead Island franchise, Riptide. Taking place after the events of the first game, Riptide places you in the shoes of the four original survivors plus a fifth new character as you set about destroying the limbs of each and every zombie you encounter.

We enlisted our zombie fan Gameboffin to check out what Techland has to offer in their latest venture to the undead genre and also see whether zombies sink or swim in water.

Read on for his full thoughts.

A new trailer for the upcoming Dead Island: Riptide has surfaced over on IGN, offering the first look at gameplay action in Techland's next addition the zombie shooter franchise.

No description on the video's contents appears to have been offered by IGN, but the producer narrating the gameplay walkthrough explains that it's demonstrating the game's new "hub defence mode". Beyond that, we're struggling to spot many enhancements over the original Dead Island, however it is expected to be more of an expansion rather than a full sequel.
