Very cool

*** Warning - Videos are PEGI 18 (Zombies & axe'ification) ***

here is an Embedded version of that trailer

<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/20091818" width="640" height="385" frameborder="0"></iframe>

and here is the backwards trailer "reversed" (so it's in chronological order)


Hmm, looking at details looks very much like it's "inspired" by Left 4 Dead (and get a strange "Far Cry" Déjà vu vibe from the island)... oh well that's not a bad thing as can never have enough great zombie killing games.. particularly those with 4 player co-op and as good looking as this

Will be keeping an eye on this one :thumbsup:

and if it plays as well as it looks, will be needing this link http://www.amazon.co.uk/Deep-Silver-Dead-Island-DVD/dp/B004O6MO2I/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1301427462&sr=8-3

Ha awesome, tx for the reverse.

I watched the proper version twice and thought I understood it all, but watching the reverse just put it all together nicely, very very cool.

LOL @ the bit with the car "so here is a lady needing help, trapped in the house by her car..." so he jumps in and steals the car LOL!

Not sure about the "transport anywhere" mechanic to save people long journeys...

The Ram zombie with the helpers, that's straight out of the Batman game - worked really well in that.

Drop in/out co-op - nice.

Box art revealed

Here we present the official packshots of the European versions of Dead Island for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Dead Island Packshot PEGI Version (Europe)


Dead Island Packshot ESRB Version ("watered down" North American version)


Notice in the ESRB version the logo of the hanging character in the tree has been changed

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has ordered that the North American version of Dead Island cannot use the hanging corpse that featured in the original logo on the front of its box.

Instead, the new logo will feature a cuddly zombie walking on the ground, and very much alive (but also dead).

A rep from developer Deep Silver confirmed the change to IGN, though pointed out that the hanging zombie will appear in-game.

The ESRB explained this apparent contradiction thus:

“We never censor or dictate in any way what type of content can be included within a game. However, a game’s marketing materials are seen by an audience that is much broader than that which actually purchases the game itself, so we enforce industry-adopted guidelines as to what is suitable for inclusion in these materials.”
