A new set of screenshots for Dead Island: Riptide were released earlier today by the games developer, Deep Silver, revealing the game’s jungle like environment, a ton of zombies and not to forget, an equal amount of explosions.

New details also reveal the story for the game, which continues where the story from the first game left off, the heroes have escaped in a helicopter to a military ship, which of course gets hit by a storm, and the virus spreads to its crew, the ship crashes and the characters are stuck on an island again.

To be exact, the island of Palanai, where Xian, Sam B, Logan and Purna must fight for their survival with a new character named John Morgan, who was a cook from the ship and is mastered in hand-to-hand combat.

Check out the screenshots below, Dead Island: Riptide will launch on the PS3, PC and Xbox 360 on April 23rd.
