Dead Island was actually announced back in 2007. But it wasn’t until today that it finally caught the attention of gamers around the world.
A rather haunting, and bloody teaser trailer is the reason for this excitement, which you’ll have to see for yourself after the break.
IGN has a few details: It’s a first-person zombie game with RPG elements, set on a tropical island in Papua New Guinea. And the focus is more realistic (as realistic as you can be with zombies), there aren’t high-powered weapons scattered about, so melee combat will play a larger role. The game also supports four-player co-op.
Of course many will compare it to the Left 4 Dead games. We’ll have to see how the game compares when Dead Island is released later this year.
