The announcement trailer for Dead Island has just been released and it sets a new standard. Some commentators on IGN started crying, while others were ready to bring out the shotgun.
From Wikipedia:It is an open-ended game, centered on the challenge of survival on a zombie-infested island. The game uses a first-person perspective. However, the developers are claiming that the game will be far beyond a typical first-person shooter experience, mainly due to a bigger emphasis on melee combat, role-playing elements and a clear focus on story-telling.
Dead Island has no release date yet, but is expected in 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
