I haven't heard much about Dead Island apart from the fact that it's another survival horror game... with zombies. The difference with the competition is that it's a first person shooter game developed by Techland for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, and it involves open world gameplay with survivors trying to get out of an island infested with the undead. Now even with that kind of scenario and mechanics, what makes it so different from games like Resident Evil, Left 4 Dead, and Dead Rising before it? A depressing trailer, that's what, and thanks to the likes of Kotaku and Slash Film, we get a taste of the true repercussions of Survival Horror.
Now THAT is how you tease a survival horror game... with sad moments.
Dead Island, published by Deep Silver and developed by Techland, is scheduled for release sometime this year. Visit the official Facebook for more info.
