Creepy Dead Island Box Art Revealed for Xbox 360
The box art for upcoming zombie survival romp Dead Island has revealed itself to be every bit as creepy as the the trailers and screen shots released thus far.
Published by Deep Silver, Dead Island is a four player cooperative action game where players are forced to fight there way through hordes of the undead, all located on a tropical island resort. Players will take on the role of surviving vacationers and utilize a wide variety of melee weapons in order to fend off the zombie hordes.
While the formula sounds rather reminiscent of the Left 4 Dead series, it will be interesting to know whether Dead Island will be more story driven and less segmented than Valve’s zombie killing franchise. The makers promise a deep engrossing experience along with weapon customization, potentially in the vein of Dead Rising.
Little is known beyond the premise however. Though the basic concept of fighting zombies is nevertheless often all it takes to get players hooked on a franchise.
Originally announced back in 2008 with a series of brief and non-descript teaser trailers, the development on the game went silent until it resurfaced earlier this year with a much more vivid and impressive trailer.
Be warned: some viewers may find the contents disturbing. For the rest; pull up a chair and prepare to be entertained.
The title is now scheduled to be released on August 1st, though hopefully more details regarding the final product will be made available before then.
