Originally announced in 2007 for a 2008 release on the Xbox 360, it looks like Techland has finally set a release for this year with publisher Deep Silver on board, to release on the Playstation 3 and PC as well. Dead Island is described as a first-person melee combat game with RPG elements and weapon customization, set on a open world tropical island. There will be 4-player co-op on a drop-in, drop-out type system.
IGN posted an article about the game and mentions that because the setting is a Tropical Paradise, guns will be scarce and “players will be forced to scavenge for objects and use them to beat their undead foes into submission.”
No specific date has been announced, but it will be released this year.
There are two older trailers after the jump.
NOTE: These trailers are teasers from 2007/8 and might not be representative of the current game to be released.
