Zombies Run Amok in New Dead Island Trailer

Okay, so zombies in video games aren’t exactly anything new, but we’d be lying if we said that we don’t love them and that the latest game featuring the shambling beasts, Dead Island, has anything less than our full attention.

IGN nailed down the early word along with some incredible screenshots and a trailer that we haven’t stopped watching yet.

Originally announced in 2007, in Dead Island the player is cast as a guest vacationing at the posh hotel. When the zombie outbreak occurs, he and a handful of other guests remain uninfected. They set out on a mission to escape the island, but along the way they’ll uncover the secret behind the mysterious outbreak. Although Dead Island is a story-based experience, it’s built for co-operative play, and developer Deep Silver says up to four gamers can drop in and out of the game seamlessly. But if you don’t want to play with friends, you can also play through the game alone.

Dig on the goods below, and hit up the above link for IGN’s full preview!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I’m interested but I already have Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 on this machine so I’d like something fresh (fresh BRAAAAIIIINSSS).

  • Pestilence

    Fucking hell, I thought this had been cancelled YEARS ago!

    That trailer is AWESOME though, so the fires have been stoked right here.

  • The Buz

    Holy shit this looks incredible!

    2007? I covered this for Creature Corner back in 200…4? I think? LONG AGO. 🙂 The guy in charge of Techland is a nice guy, and an extreme zombie nerd. If his original vision is carried through, this should be a fun game. (That vision was a cinematic zombie game. No mass amounts of weapons, you’re running and trying to escape, just like in the movies. You aren’t mowing down thousands of zombies, you’re using your brains and agility to survive, along with the occasional melee weapon.)
