While Dead Island Riptide looks pretty fun, all we’ve seen so far is rendered cinematics. The first gameplay footage is out, nine minutes of Deep Silver walking us through the typical zombie destruction and also hub missions where you defend groups of survivors. ¬†There’s also a turret that looks pretty fun.

Try not to be too disappointed in how clunky it looks, this is all pre-alpha footage. Check it out over at IGN.

    Xian, Logan, Sam B and Purna are all shown throughout the hub, and when the playable character speaks, he’s got that Aussie accent. So just who are we playing in this game, if not the main four? Very interesting.

    Also, I like that the combat is pretty much the same as the first game, as I thought it worked well enough… but there wasn’t enough NEW stuff there. Mines and boats and wire fencing, sure, but I will be hoping for a bit more than that.

    They confirmed there is a new fifth character.
