New “Dead Island” Trailer, Game Play Screenshots


Just a few months ago, the first trailer for zombie-horror game “Dead Island” absolutely rocked the internet with its gut-wrenching emotional journey which showed viewers a reverse-action short of a little girl and her family falling prey to a mindless horde of zombies. Before that the game was relatively unknown, developed by Techland in Poland. Since the unanticipated success of the trailer, fans have been clamoring for more — especially game play footage.

Dead Island takes place at the fictional Palms Resort in Banoi. The story begins when the player wakes up after a hard night of partying, only to discover that most of the people on the island are dead, many of which were turned to zombies.

Techland has followed their stunningly beautiful yet horrifying Dead Island trailer with a second emotion-driven trailer, this time featuring bits of in-game footage:

The studio has also released several first-person game screenshots showing the player warding off blood-thirsty zombies:
