Default Dead Island

YouTube - Dead Island: Official Announcement Trailer

It looks pretty awesome. Nuff said, watch the video!

some gameplay footage would have been nice. methinks the zombie genre is going to get awfully crowded in the coming years...

Man that trailer looks badass. I hope the game is good, it sounds like a good premise - a zombie RPG/survival-horror would be awesome. Hopefully they can pull it off, and not make it a brainless (PUN?) button mashing experience like Dead Rising 2

This doesn't tell us anything. It could be complete crap or awesome but who knows.

I liked the video but it reminds me of Dead Rising 2 too much with the kid. Dead Rising 2 is a crappy game but it had some good videos that made me regrettably buy the boring game.
