New Teaser Trailer for Zombie Game Dead Island

Deep Silver has released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming zombie survival game “Dead Island”. Like the previous announcement trailer (also embedded below), this thing looks more like a movie teaser trailer. When did game trailers started to become so cinematic? I still have no idea what the gameplay looks like, though I suppose we’ll see that later on as more trailers are released. After all, they didn’t label this teaser “Part 1” for nothing, I’m guessing.

The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player’s stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive.
This is Dead Island… a paradise to die for.

“Dead Island” will feature first-person melee combat, 4-player coop, weapon customization, set on an open world tropical island, RPG elements for character development, and hordes of gruesome zombies are promised for the killing.

Killing on shelves August 1st.
