Deep Silver announces Dead Island: Riptide wedding competition

Trying to convince your wife- or husband-to-be of the romantic advantages of a zombie-themed wedding may usually be tricky, but Deep Silver has got you covered.

The publisher of first-person open-world zombie game Dead Island, Deep Silver has announced a wedding-themed competition to celebrate the upcoming release of sequel Dead Island: Riptide.

In a press release, the publisher announced the search for “two engaged Dead Island superfans who will be zombified for a Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony takes in every cemetery, grave and crypt the length and breadth of the UK. In return for becoming the official Dead Island Riptide zombie bride and groom, Deep Silver will host a Dead Island Riptide-themed zombie wedding ceremony and send the winning undead couple on a luxury Caribbean honeymoon.”

Applicants are required to record a short video message to YouTube explaining why they are the ideal candidates, and to then share the link via the official Dead Island: Riptide Zombie Wedding page on Facebook at the following address:

Deep Silver will then review all applications and contact a shortlist of candidates. The closing date for applications is Valentine’s Day, 14th February, with the winning couple finally being announced “at the beginning of March.”

Amy Namihas, Head of Marketing & Public Relations for Deep Silver UK, stated,

“For the launch celebrations of Dead Island Riptide we wanted to do something different, and a zombie wedding with all the trappings certainly fits the bill and has not been done on this scale before. We’re excited to see the application videos from our prospective undead bride and groom and look forward to hosting the wedding of the fear.”

Dead Island: Riptide is scheduled for release on 26th April 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
