Dead Island

2011 seems to be a pretty nice year for me as far as gaming goes. I've seen multiple great looking games that are set to come out, so I can only hope this next one will be the same. Not much has been said about Dead Island except the basics. Here is a video for you to watch the trailer.


As you can see, there are clearly zombies. Zombie Island will have a large focus on melee weapons and will be in first person. I imagine it's going to play a lot like other sandbox zombie games in the genre, such as Dead Rising. If that's the case, I won't complain as I love the Dead Rising games. Anyways, there will also be a strong story which is also good and another thing I enjoyed about Dead Rising.

Best of all, however, is that it takes place on a tropical island on a vacation. I think I enjoy that a little more than a mall or casino. Just like in Dead Rising 2, there will be co-op. I'm not sure to what extent, just that it will be a 1-4 drop in and out co-op. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for a co-op story mode.

  1. I'm more of a Left 4 Dead kinda guy.

    I'm really looking forward to L.A. Noire from 2011 though.

  2. Interesting trailer aside, I'm not sure if Dead Island is going to offer anything new to the zombie 'genre'. It's way too early to tell though.

    Very much looking forward to LA Noire as well.
