Dead Island Riptide is following the footsteps of its predecessor by releasing a sappy pre-rendered trailer that is nothing like the game it is supposedly "inspired" by.
Similar to Dead Island's much-viewed teaser, When All Hope Is Lost shows what happens when "ordinary people" get caught in a zombie invasion. Emotional piano music accompanies a couple's tender embrace--before the zombies get to them, of course.

Initial reactions on YouTube have been mixed, with one user noting "I ain't falling for that sh-t again." Another added: "Well, they do know how to make good trailers!" Dead Island Riptide will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2013.
