Exclusive presell gift available only with purchase of the Dead Island Riptide video game for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3

Hmm... I'm guessing this is a bit of a mess up to be placed for pre-order purchase, but I figured I'd share in case anyone wanted to take the gamble on preordering it and getting it. (No release date for Riptide has been set and amazon and BB are both stating 12/31/13 will be its release.)

It was officially announced way back at E3. All they've released so far is the logo though.

wow, and was riptide always going to be $49.99? it is that price now on best buy.


Yeah it was scheduled to be $49.99. I'm paraphrasing but one of the developers said $49.99 should be the standard price for all new games this late in the consoles life cycle.

can i just order the steelbook by itself or do i have to buy the game at the same time? it is letting me checkout with just the steelbook which is weird.


YMMV if they fulfill orders. They did for Prototype 2 steelbooks and Cars 2 and those were supposed to be "Gift with Purchase". Others have been cancelled.

Obviously odds go done now that we have a seperate thread :(

Yep. They said it was only going to be $50 seeing that we're at the end of a console cycle.

Such an early announcement for a game that wasn't all that great IMO


It had a lot of promise, unfortunately it had a lot of issues as well that held it back. I'm hoping they learned some lessons with the first one & this one is a better, more polished game. But it's certainly not something I'll be buying until I read some reviews saying that's the case, and preferably I'd like to at least play a demo.

The first game only just came out last year. There is no way this is a "sequel." More like an overpriced expansion pack. ;)

They never said it was a sequel. They specifically stated it wasn't 'Dead Island 2'. It's no more an expansion pack than Super Street Fighter IV, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Dead Rising: Off the Record and many more.

Man I am so ignorant that I didn't know the sequel was called riptide, I thought it was called dead world or something....

I cant wait for this game, I put the first Dead Island game in the same league as the first Borderlands. Great concept but few technical issues and ideas that weren't fully developed. I see Riptide gonna be a huge step forward like Borderlands 2.

1 was fun but got redundant fast, save thing pissed me off the first few times... But the bro-op was ultimately a fun experience. Really hope they polished this one.

Like what Tsel said, Dead Island Riptide is probably going to be like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Revelations. Just a big expansion pack that simply a game in its own right. From the title, it's going to be on another island or the same one.

It isn't going to be Dead Island 2; I think they would change up the whole title to fit the naming convention. The sequel should be called Dead World though. :lol:

yes, because franchises cant bring out a game a year after one has come out. Sports games? Assassin's Creed? Dance Central?

I really hope they polish up the series. Dead Island had too many gameplay mechanics that really prevented me from really enjoying it. I actually fell asleep playing the game.

Calling this a sequel wouldn't be entirely correct... it's an expansion and was always called as such.

I enjoyed and completed the game a couple months ago on PS3. I can't recall any technical issues people are talking about. Maybe they were too minor for me to remember back then(?) Anyhow, can't wait for Riptide.

Framerate issues + freezing issues on the PS3 version when playing co-op with a buddy of mine from PSN/CAG means I'll likely wait on this one and see if they actually patch it if it's a glitchy pos like the first one was.

If it turns out to be as bad as the first one, then Deep Silver can suck a big, fat veiny one for all I care unless they patch it to where it's no longer glitchy as Fuck. I'm not gonna risk nerfing my PS3 because some developer is too lazy to fix the issues in their game. As it stands I had about 10 or so hard freezes with my PS3 while playing the co-op multiplayer version over PSN. I'm not going through that shit again.

Honestly, if I would've had to play the game by myself, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much as I did. Playing it with three other friends though made it an absolute blast. I could look past the glitches and stuff because 1.) I thoroughly enjoy zombie games and 2.) I loved the weapon system. There were quite a few things that needed polishing, but I had fun nonetheless.

Only issue I had was problems joining my friends game and one guy who drove the jeep into a tree and left. Missed us off because we had to walk back to grab another. Overall a solid game if you have someone to play it with.

Well all opinions aside it is a fact they released a patch that took call of MANY of the tech and balancing issues people had with the game. I am liking what I have played so far.

You mean THIS patch:

http://www.eurogamer...ate-and-details

I can verify for a fact that the weapons switching when you use a health drink/medkit still DO happen and actually my friend and I who played co-op had it switch us to bare fists in the middle of a battle before.

So that patch just created MORE problems or didn't really fix some of the existing ones.

I can tell you for certain that if the patch improved stability while playing online with others it certainly was not noticeable to my friend and I. :-#

Dead Island is perfectly fine now on all consoles, nice and patched. Sure I had many issues with PS3 version when it first released, but not anymore. It's fine and cheap now.

To be fair, I've never had it crash. Only the issues I mentioned.
