Dead Island is a new zombie game that takes place in Banoi, a tropical resort island full of mouth watering tourists. So mouth watering in fact, that now the almost all have completely fallen prey to a zombie outbreak, leaving only a handful immune -- ie, you the player.
Based on what we're seeing here, game company Techland is looking to create a more emotional zombie gaming experience in the hopes that we'll get more involved and get the pants scared off us.
Publisher Deep Silver stated that up to four players may drop in (and out) at any time, though soloing the entire game is still a viable option.
No specifics on a launch date yet, but Deep Silver and Techland expect to finish for a 2011 release, on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3.
The game's official site is under construction, but expect more to appear soon.http://www.deadislandgame.com/
