Classic zombie FPS is completely free on Steam right now, but go fast

To celebrate Dead Island 2 finally coming to Steam, Dead Island Riptide is a free game on Valve's platform, but you've got to be real fast.

Dead Island Riptide free game Steam

Dead Island Riptide is currently a free game on Steam for just a couple of days, so if you want to add another game to your ever-expanding Steam list, you’ll need to act fast. The game has been made free to celebrate the announcement of a Steam release date for last year’s sequel, Dead Island 2.

This brief free game promotion for Dead Island Riptide comes as Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios’ Dead Island 2 finally has a Steam release date after a year of Epic Games Store exclusivity. That’s right, Dead Island 2 finally arrives on Steam on Monday, April 22. The first Dead Island is also 85% off for now if you fancy going back to where it all started.

If you’re looking for some slash-ful co-op zombie slaying action for you and some friends, you can’t go wrong with a free Steam game.
