Blood beach: Dead Island’s release trailer31 Aug 2011
This is a touch premature, as the game doesn’t come out until 6 September in the US (and 9 September elsewhere), but Techland has issued a ‘release’ trailer for Dead Island.
It shows a beautiful paradise resort in which humans and zombies co-exist in sunbathing harmony, play beach football together and generally have a jolly good time. Oh, wait, no that’s just something I made up.
It actually shows a desperate fight for survival against slavering zombie hordes. Excellently, there are a fair few Australian accents on show, making this trailer seem like the greatest episode of Home & Away ever written.
“Alf mate, zombies are invading the surf club!”
