Welcome to paradise. Dead Island is Techland’s newly announced zombie FPS-RPG that takes place in the tropical resorts of Papua New Guinea. While the zombie outbreak theme is becoming as stale and bloated as one of Left 4 Dead’s Boomers, if this trailer is any indication of the theme of Dead Island’s final product, we might just have a zombie title which manages to bring some em0tion into typically braindead theme.
Dead Island is set to be released later this year on the PS3, 360, and PC. If TechLand puts half as much effort into making their game as memorable as this trailer, then this could this year’s zombie game to beat.
