by on August 31, 2011

If you are super stoked for the imminent arrival of Dead Island, then you will be pleased to know that Deep Silver and Techland have released a new trailer for this highly anticipated title. Released on the 9th of September, the trailer shows off some exciting cut scenes and action sequences to really get you ready for the next gaming zombie apocalypse! You’ll get to see the once Island paradise turned into some kind of hellish nightmare, using only your cunning and a vast array of customizable weapons to take on the vast hordes of the undead.

Dead Island, the upcoming gruesome zombie action game with RPG elements by renowned developer Techland, combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customisation of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on discovering and utilising items as weapons for self-defense and fighting off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

So now board up your doors and windows, break out the baseball bat, kitchen knifes and your trusty boom stick and watch the trailer in all its glory!

Dead Island Will be available to buy from 9th September in Europe on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
