Who Wants to Watch 9 Minutes of Pre-Alpha Dead Island: Riptide Gameplay?

After the acquisition of Volition and the rights to the Metro and Saints Row franchises (and spending way more than they had to), Deep Silver/Koch Media are now a publisher to look out for. Just within the next few months, they will release 2 big sellers in Dead Island: Riptide and Metro: Last Light, with Saints Row 4 likely showing up in 2014.

Though Metro: Last Light may be in danger of missing its March release date after Deep Silver sent out this tweet saying it may take some time to complete the transition of Volition, Saints Row, and Metro, Dead Island: Riptide is still on track for its April 23rd/26th release date.

To help get you excited for the game, Deep Silver has posted 9 minutes of pre-Alpha footage (it will look and play better at launch) for Riptide, which you can view in its entirety below:
