Chances are, if you're a fan of horror gaming, you've been trying to find information on Microsoft's upcoming title "Dead Island". We sure don't know much....we know it takes place on a tropical island, there's some sort of a zombie outbreak, it's an open sandbox survival style and it appears to be a combination FPS with RPG elements. It's supposed to be heavily melee combat oriented, have a huge influence from George A Romero movies and have 4 player co-op. But really that's all we have to go on....until now.
Anyone who claims gaming can't be an art form should watch this trailer. It almost brought a tear to this obnoxious jerk's eye. It's simply an amazing job, and the reverse carnage style, combined with the music, is truly effective at drawing you in. By the time you realize what's going on - you're hooked. And perhaps....a little misty-eyed.
Bring on Dead Island.
