'Dead Island' trailer shows infected paradise
Banoi's band of misfit survivors struggle against a rising tide of zombie madness in
Dead Island's launch trailer.
Hotel receptionist Xian, rapper Sam, NFL dropout Logan and ex-cop Purna are among the few that have not yet succumbed to a horrific mutagen outbreak.
The launch trailer contains plenty of blood and gore and revisits the theme music of Dead Island's debut teaser.
There's an emphasis on melee combat, given that ammunition is a scarce resource with the tropical resort on lockdown, and a few of the game's tougher enemies are in evidence - the long-haired Butcher, vomiting Drowner, and beefed-up Ram.
Dead Island, for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3, launches on September 6 in North America and September 9 elsewhere, during the same week as Driver: San Francisco, Resistance 3 and Space Marine.
