Dead Island Riptide gets a nine minute gameplay video

No booby torsos in sight!

Deep Silver has seen fit to grace the realm with nine minutes of Dead Island Riptide gameplay footage. The game’s not shown off much moving imagery yet, so this nice hefty chunk is most welcome!

The pre-alpha footage shows off the combat and some mission objectives. As you might expect, it all looks very similar to the original Dead Island, with Techland taking the classic, “If it’s got zombies, don’t fix” approach to refinement. Still, I liked the first game, even if it was riddled with problems, so I’m hoping it’ll at least be as good, if not better. 

What do you reckon? Into this, or too much of something you didn’t want?
