Description
Release Date: 04 November 2011

Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization 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 4 players in co-op mode.

Features:

First-person melee combat
4-player co-op
Weapon customization
Set on an gorgeous open world tropical island
RPG elements for character development
Hordes of gruesome zombies

I'll be honest, I've had a good and bad experiences on preorders with Zavvi...however this game does look good.

Frosty as Frosty the Snowman.

Release is over 8 months away. Hardly a deal now is it.

yeah I know, fair play but a company that makes a trailer that surely can't make a game that bad? :p I've seen some games before which had awesome trailers and the game ended up being pretty bad but I'm slightly optimistic about this one...

Their past catalogue of games is the problem i have, none of them in the past have excited me in terms of ideas or ratings given. Trailers are much easy to master than the game itself, hopefully they don't mess it up as the idea and stuff that happened in the video looks ace.

From reading the wiki of it i like the idea 'The zombies have fully-modelled layers of meat and muscle rendered onto their bodies, meaning they have a multi-layered damage system with real-time injuries'

The trailer was great (very cinematic) but the game will have to be as good graphically as the pre-rendered trailer for to have the same impact as well.

This is just looking like L4D on an island (see some gameplay clips on YouTube).

Trailers always "look" better than the actual game - hence the numerous trailers and TV ads for games that include the "not actual gameplay footage" caveat in tiny writing.

Yeah that sounds good, lets hope they can pull it off...ideas always sound good on paper X) I've not played any games they've produced so I dunno how good/bad they are but a zombies game is usually a good idea imo...

Also, don't forget, it would not be a wise idea to release a promotion video to make a game (or film, or whatever) look worse than it is!

BFN,

Trailer looks awesome, but i'd have to wait on actual gameplay vids before I decide whether to preorder. :{
#9
I don't trust trailers for s***! Noone should, in fact, quite often there's an awful trailer for a movie/game that turns out to be amazing! I'm like 80% sure this game will be good but this is wayyyyy too early to make a £32 preorder, it's not like you're saving loads by buying it now anyway.

One can never truly be over zombies.
#14
haven't we basically been fighting zombies in most games up til now, maybe not technically zombies but they might as well be... brainless swarms of enemies who are slower/less intelligent/less effective than the main character. thinking about it.. there are very few game enemies you can't easily compare with zombies
#15
It'll NEVER make the November date. I was watching one of last weeks ign daily fix videos and they mentioned there is a posibility it may never get finished never mind hit it's release date.

Yes the trailer looks great but it it a promotional trailer used to sell the idea to the corporations.

I ain't saying it isn't coming, just youd be an idiot to pay for it now.

The company has already cancelled/postponed 2 titles for this year, so it could been seen as either a) this will go the same way or b) they are commiting all members to this game to get it out on time
