Dead Island

Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:34 pm

Seems somone has taken L4D and stuck it on a nice tropical island with what seemed like a theme park as well, the graphics seem awesome plus the trailer seems to be done entirely in game graphics.

Interesting, I was just about to start a topic myself... the announcement trailer is awesome!

It being a zombie game, puts it pretty dominant on my radar... can never have enough zombie games! The graphics kinda remind me of Brink

Yeah, plus Brink is one I'm waiting for highly as well.

This project is affiliated with George Romero. I remember the characters landing on an island at the end of Day of the Dead. I wonder if this might be related?

I doubt that, if you look at the trailer I posted, you can see that this will all probably happen during a summer vacation.
But is Romero really involved? Damn, that nudged this game up a few places on my watchlist

Definitely happy to see another full on zombie game along the lines of L4D.

Fuckus....Oh and it's become an RPG/Shooter......All I can say is SWEEEEEEEET!

Re: Dead Island

My prayers have been answered!

Not sure if there'll be guns by what the guy said but there's definate melee weapons and creation combos so it's still allll goooooood.

Melee is good. I have fun mowing down hordes in L4D2 with a chainsaw.
Like you said, it's still all goooooood.

Plus there are classes apparently but I'm thinking it'll be preset characters so no customization which is the only downside to it.

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:10 am

Classes? That's cool.
I like to customise though :l

But can't be too picky. There's finally a zombie rpg.

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:13 am

I mean character customization but there is skill customization.

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:15 am

Oh ok.

Is this game going to have a co-op mode?

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:15 am

4 person co-op baby!

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 10:08 am

Hell yeah!

I can't wait for it now.

L4D and Dead Rising 2 had a baby, it's name is Dead Island

Re: Dead Island

New IGN images.

Re: Dead Island

Thu Mar 03, 2011 3:29 pm

Looks sweet, I'm very excited!

Re: Dead Island

^ Agreed.
I'm lovin' that it's going to be a sandbox game.
A whole island of zombies. Nowhere is safe :D

And the zombies could easily wander into the ocean...

I'll just leave this 11 minutes of gameplay here

Re: Dead Island

Mon May 23, 2011 4:11 pm

Eh, that didn't actually look all that impressive. L4D on a sedative, with a dash of Dead Rising. Graphics reminded me of Far Cry 2.
Not so sure about it anymore

Re: Dead Island

Mon May 23, 2011 4:21 pm

Rental, maybe?

Re: Dead Island

Mon May 23, 2011 4:30 pm

More like download, yarr!

But perhaps they'll change a few things here and there that'll make me more interested
