One of the screenshots show survivors getting the heck out of zombie range in a motorboat. These are a new form of transportation in the game that will help you travel across different islands. They can also be used to make minced meat out of zombies in the water. Just shout ‘full speed ahead’ and take the motorboat close enough for the propellers to do their job.
Dead island: Riptide will continue the story of the original four characters. An option of importing saved game files from the previous title has also been included.
The game will release next year in 2013 with new weapons and more zombies.
