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.
Key Features

First-person melee combat

IGN preview video is up:

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.
