Deep Silver has reached a new major milestone in sales of Dead Island -


Deep Silver today announced it has achieved a major milestone in worldwide sales for the zombie action game Dead Island™. Since its release in September of 2011, Dead Island has sold-through over five million copies worldwide and still maintains an exceptionally strong sales rate in all channels. This achievement includes sales from both retail and digital versions.

“While others focus on ever-increasing development budgets and driving brand messages via ballooning marketing expenditures, Deep Silver stands for hitting the zeitgeist, innovation and fresh gameplay. Dead Island has an incredibly active and enthusiastic community, and we are thrilled to welcome the five millionth player to the world of Banoi. This once again proves that venturing into new waters in terms of games publishing does matter for success and that even at the end of a console cycle new IPs can be created and nurtured into lasting franchises,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media.

“We’re very proud to have achieved five million units sold worldwide! We see this sustained excellent performance as a particularly good omen for the projected sales of Dead Island Riptide, our upcoming next installment, that will be released later this year,” added Menno van der Bil, International Commercial Director, Koch Media. “The continued success of Dead Island has proven that we’re on the right track with our overall IP strategy for Deep Silver. Further new IPs with an innovative angle and maybe even a surprising touch can be expected from Deep Silver.”

Dead Island Riptide is the next installment in the Dead Island franchise. Its story is a continuation of the incidents taking place in the original game and it adds many new features to the co-op focused gameplay.

About Dead Island Riptide
With invigorating new elements infused into a proven mix, Dead Island Riptide will reanimate the zombie terror in the original game. A monsoon has hit the once beautiful archipelago and heavy rainstorms have laid waste to large areas of the islands. The city of Henderson and jungle areas on the island of Palanai were flooded, leaving boats as the only remaining way of transportation. Dynamic weather conditions will force the team members to adapt to changing visibility conditions.

A fifth character will join the team, with an all-new and unique skillset. The combined skills of the group will be sorely needed, since terrible, new and unknown zombie mutations have emerged all over the island.

In the new hub defense missions, the co-op team play skills of the survivors will be tested to the limit – they need to strategically place traps, fences and turrets to fend off oncoming zombie onslaughts and to protect the humans in these sanctuaries.

New communication features in co-op mode also allow players to enjoy an even more intense and strategic team play experience.

Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 23, 2013, in North and Latin America and on April 26, 2013, in the rest of the world.

    Admiring the hard work you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out
    of date rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including
    your RSS feeds to my Google account.
    Hi! I’ve been following your blog for some time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from New Caney Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the great work!
    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    I am curious to find out what blog system you’re working with? I’m having some small
    security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more
    risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?
    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate
    it.
    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a
    amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.

    Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog site is in the
    exact same area of interest as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks a lot!

    Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in
    3 completely different internet browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest
    price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
    Great website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any forums that
    cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
    Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects? Thank you!
    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange techniques with other folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer
    for your site. You have some really good posts and I feel
    I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Regards!
    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Very good blog!
    Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Many thanks
    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard
    time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help stop content from
    being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.
    Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
    Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely enjoying the
    information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Outstanding blog and wonderful style and design.
    Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping
    to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .
    . Any tips? Cheers!
    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot
    you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this superb blog!

    I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
    Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded
    on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent site!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
    Right now it appears like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read)
    Is that what you’re using on your blog?
    Great post however , I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d
    be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Kudos!
    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can
    remove me from that service? Thank you!
    Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche.

    Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done a marvellous job!

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Hey! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this
    post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you
    for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
    one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!
    Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before
    but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
    Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would
    really enjoy your content. Please let me know.
    Thank you
    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    great blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can
    figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
    Hey! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might
    be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!
    I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest
    but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back down the road. Cheers
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog
    and would like to know where u got this from. appreciate it
    Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
    Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
    different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m
    trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any
    coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly
    appreciated!
    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
    Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
    I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to
    rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Cheers!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required
    to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine
    if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a
    issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
    Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look
    forward to all your posts! Carry on the superb
    work!
    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say superb blog!
