Techland’s Dead Island: Riptide is available to play for free this weekend, and you’ll be able to buy the full game for free at 66% off as part of a Weekend Deal. That’s a lot of cheap zombie murdering action.

Dead Island: Riptide is set on the tropical island of Palanai that has become infested with bloodthirsty zombies. Your job is to improvise your own weapons, kill zombies, and fight alongside other survivors.

The game received mediocre reviews when it came out, suffering as it does from a number of technical issues. That’s something that Techland will be hoping to improve on with their ambitious next-gen zombie project Dying Light, a free-running sandbox of undead mayhem. A free go on Riptide might just get you in the mood.
