Dead Island Gameplay Trailer Unveiled
Tuesday, May 24, 2011 1 Comment
Yesterday the internet was caught off guard when Deep Silver games pulled the curtain off the previously uber-mysterious zombie game, Dead Island. Buzz for the game went viral when the original announcement trailer swept us off our feet back in February. Though the game is no where near as dramatic as that teaser trailer implies, the gameplay shows a lot of potential. While we were all expecting another Left 4 Dead, Dead Island looks to be more of a Fallout-style of gameplay, sporting an enormous open world with tons of story-driven missions and side missions that can be played start to finish with drop-in/drop-out four-player co-op. Yeah, I’ve got a semi-chub just thinking about it. While the combat is mostly melee-centric, the gameplay trailer below showcases a bit of firearm combat as well, though the developers stresses guns will be few and far between.

The gameplay video is narrated by Vincent Kummer from Deep Silver Studios, who walks you through the nearly 12-minute demo. You’ll get to see how the mission structure works, how the combat feels, and you’ll see a few of the different types of zombies.
