Dead Island: Riptide

Developer: Techland

Platforms: PC / Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3

Release Date: April 23, 2013

Hate on it all you want for its misogynistic promotions, it won't change the fact that Dead Island: Riptide - like its predecessor - will offer an island full of randomly generated zombies, gear, and more for players to hack and slash their way through. The campaign can certainly be finished, but as long as you're willing to fight for your life on the islands of the Banoi archipelago, you'll have something to do.

It's the character customization and weapon crafting however that will keep the game interesting over the course of the year, offering players plenty of opportunities to discover and maximize new weapon and skill combinations. You'll be able to mix and match your instruments of death as you chop down all those sexy bikini zombies to nothing but a smokin' hot torso... What? Too soon?
