Must Watch: Amazing Trailer for Zombie Video Game Dead Island
Damn! Since we normally only ever write about movies, if a video game trailer makes it on here, you know it's going to be amazing. There's a new announcement trailer via IGN for developer Techland's zombie video game Dead Island that's quickly making its way around the web. Nordling from AICN says it's "better than any feature film trailer you see this year" and Kotaku calls it "disturbing, chilling, and yes, heartbreaking." SlashFilm finally convinced me to feature it here, as I think it's just a beautifully made trailer that all of you guys need to see, too. It's only 3 minutes and is basically a zombie short, so take a moment and check it out!
In Dead Island you can enjoy a tropical vacation complete with zombies. The game will take a more realistic approach to the zombie survival genre, which "not only means that children might die, you won't have a cache of guns to try and defend them." It's first-person melee combat with "weapon" customization, but no guns. It's set on an open world tropical island and features RPG elements for character development, as well as hordes of gruesome zombie. Techland is developing the game for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. We don't know the release date, but you can follow the Facebook page for updates. How awesome was that?
