Dead Island was announced almost 4 years ago and an early trailer was released, promising the game in 2008. Well, time flies, and here we are in 2011 with a new trailer released and a release date of 2011 being promised. After viewing the trailer, it may have been worth the wait. The trailer is a reverse-time slow-motion video that is one of the most creepy-feeling trailers I’ve seen in a long time.
Dead Island is a first-person shooter set on a New Guinea vacation island where a zombie uprising has occurred, and you’re fighting for survival. There aren’t a lot of weapons on the island so you have to improvise and apparently the game will let you pick up almost any object for a weapon. IGN has some great screen shots, and an article about the game.
