Dead Island has been in development for years by Deep Silver & Techland. So long in fact, most of you have likely forgotten about it. Dead Island was proposed ages ago as an open-world Zombie game that takes place on the island with co-op elements. Watching the trailer and looking at the new screens it looks like that’s exactly what this is, an open-world zombie co-op game on an island. However, the presentation is phenomenal, the trailer is clever, and the concept is exciting. Check out the trailer & screens (from IGN) below.

The game comes out later this year for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It is confirmed to allow 4-players to play together cooperatively, be a story-based experience, and have a bigger focus on melee attacks than guns. How this all works we will have to see in coming months.
