About the Game

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 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 utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight 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.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan’s fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game’s unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What’s more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.

With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland’s acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

Review will be up early next week... Not that I truly trust IGN's take.

That's the problem..the game comes out early next week.

I've always been pretty suspicious when games don't have any reviews and are coming out soon.

I am buying this game if only for the reason they made one of the most unique, moving and amazing game commercials ever for it.

Zombie games are the worst thing to happen to the FPS genre since WWII.

Sounds like L4D2 is going to have some competition. That's one of the best games out there when you get a good group.

Definitely check out vids when I get home.

Someone at IGN said this reminds them of Fallout 3 with zombies and co-op. Sounds good to me but I'll wait for reviews.

If that's so I'm buying it (eventually). I want to hear CP's reviews first.

When games become about who you are killing rather than the plot and gameplay mechanics....you are failing.

The Plot is a Zombie infestation. What's wrong with that?

Unfortunately it seems this trailer has nothing at all to do with the plot or tone of Dead Island. Apparently the story and cutscenes are pretty weak.

However, it sounds like a lot of fun. I'll definitely Gamefly it and possibly buy it if it's as fun as it sounds.

Maybe u should try the game where u step away from the computer and have real human interaction outside the house.

I played for 7 hours I would recommend it if ur a L4D fan but doesn't have much guns though still havent got to that part yet as I am trying to level up just doing side quest mostly.

Why?

Saulbadguy

Why?

The Steam version that released yesterday was a dev version with tons of glitches. How they fucked that up, I have no clue.

It's also getting pretty mediocre reviews. They knew the game wasn't great so they wouldn't let anyone review it until release - I hate it when they do that.

I don't care much for zombie games, but i have to say this one has been a pleasant surprise. The plotline is good, and the action is fun as well. Borderlands is 10x better though, so don't expect anything similiar to Borderlands. I haven't even found a firearm yet.

Wow... haha terrible launch thus far..
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-09-08-dead-island-developer-techland-disturbed-by-feminist-whore-skill

Dead Island developer Techland has apologised for a line of code that referred to a skill called "Feminist Whore".

The controversially named ability - "FeministWhorePurna" - was found within the Data0.pak\Data\default_player_setup.scr file by Steam forum goers.

Feminist Whore is thought to have become Gender Wars, a skill that allows Purna - in the final game - an extra 15 per cent damage against men.

"It obviously violates professional and ethical standards at Techland and should never have happened," Blazej Krakowiak, international brand manager, told Eurogamer. "We're investigating this right now and we'll issue a statement later.

"For now, I can only express my sincerest apologies for this incident and assure you that whoever acted so irresponsibly did not represent the views and opinions of Techland.

"I'm equally sure that aside from the author of that unfortunate line of code, everyone at the office is as disturbed by this as you are."

The other skills mentioned in the Dead Island .scr file also had their names changed for the final game.

An incorrect version of Dead Island made its way on to Steam this week. That has now been replaced and Deep Silver has promised a hefty patch for Europe's Friday launch.

However, some saved games created while playing the incorrect version of Dead Island may be in danger, due to the incompatibility between the two builds. The danger, in this case, being a wiped Dead Island saved game.

Lolz was just about to post this up, I think the game is getting a bad rap though. Fun factor i value above all else and it has lots of that.

Rented it for the last couple of days and it's actually not that bad of a game. There are a couple of issues that I had with it....but I'll probably end up buying it.
