Last week Deep Silver revealed to the world that they would be publishing Techland’s Dead Island and revealed one of the most interesting trailers in recent memory. It wasn’t interesting because of gameplay or features shown, it was interesting because of how dramatic it was and the way that everything was portrayed. In this trailer we see a family on vacation get attacked and bitten by zombies after a mysterious outbreak on the island occurred.
The trailer itself has made its rounds through the internet and is easily one of the must see trailers of this year, making Dead Island itself one of the hottest topics right now on the internet. In under a week it managed to occur 100k fans on Facebook, viewed by 2.7 million people on YouTube, had 3.2 million tweets so far, and even shown up on various news websites that don’t even report gaming news. Considering the large amount of hype currently being placed on Dead Island with only a few screenshots and one CG trailer out so far, hopes are already very high for the open-world zombie survival game.
