While most of us in the US were relaxing on this Memorial Day, eating our hot dogs and hamburgers and remembering those who’ve given their lives in service of our country, the good folks at Deep River/Techland were busy dropping cover images of the highly anticipated game Dead Island into the spiderweb-covered mailboxes of Dread Central.
Deep Silver’s Marketing & PR Manager Aubrey Norris explains:
Just taking this time during our national holiday to give you something to think about while enjoying the sun and grilled meatflesh with our official Dead Island box art, depicting our lovely Royal Palms Resort shining in the distance behind a suitably violent monsoon and a group of suitably violent looking zombified tourists.
A lot’s been said about Dead Island, and gamer anticipated is at an all-time high. From what we here at Dread Central have seen, this game is going to be full of blood-splattered fun!
Welcome to the Island of Banoi!
The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player’s stay was supposed to be a dream holiday, a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive.
This is Dead Island… a paradise to die for.
Dead Island will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
And, in case you haven’t already seen them, here are a few more Dead Island goodies to ponder:
