Riptide is taken directly from the events of the first Dead Island. The shielded survivors find themselves aboard a military ship on the coast of the Bannu Archipelago… but the ship is overrun by zombies. The ship crashes into a rock near the coast of Palanai and from then on you have to fight to survive there.

The Definitive Edition is the remastered version of the game with remastered HD graphics, updated models, a better Lightning system, and more improvements. Cooperative mode is also supported in this version with up to three friends.
