Plot: The characters thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Their fate took a turn for the worse. The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.
The George Romero Riptide Mod was made in honor of George Romero, considered to be the "Father of Zombie Movies". This mod aims to replicate the behaviour of the Romero zombies, which means that zombies are mostly slow and can only be killed by destroying the brain. There are also other optional features included in this mod to satisfy the cravings of Dead Island players. The Walking Dead comics and tv series and even the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead are two very well loved horror entertainment that closely follow the Romero style of zombies.

Find all the fruits, snacks, and drinks to eat them whenever you need to recover from damage!
TouristInventory.rar - carry only a few items at a time, just like an unsuspecting tourist who's on his way to the bathroom when all of a sudden the zombie apocalypse explodes all around him and he has no other choice other than to relieve himself while running away. You won't be able to carry as much food and drinks, so be careful!
