Images of Dead Island

Particularly shy, the videogame Dead Island (PC / Xbox 360) now have some rare and new screens while we are waiting for it to be released later this year. You are trapped on an island populated with zombies and must find a way to not be killed.

Screen 4: That blond bikini-beauty is HOT!!! ^^ Muahaha.
The artworks look good. And the screens look better then older ones.
But it misses the charm of a dead rising. It's quite steril I think.

A big open island full of zombies could be very cool indeed. I don't think it is aiming for humour like Dead Rising did, which is fine as long as it doesn't go the opposite way and take itself too seriously.

Zombies, serious business

Interesting idea. Almost wish the Dead Rising crew thought of it first, but at the very least, it's different. I can't remember ever seeing a Caribbean zombie story. Not sure about the zombie Saggy-Tits there though.

This is made by the people that made Call of Juarez, and I love that game to this day.

Although I'm not totally sold on the zombies on an island concept of this one yet.

I wonder if they decided to make a zombie game because so many reviewers and people were saying the characters in CoJ looked like zombies. :/

Dead Rising meets Far Cry? Very nice.

Zombies look more like drunk louts though more then anything. Some vids would be awesome

I don't think, it's a good idea...

I just hope they take some pointers from RE4. If they do then it could turn out to be a half decent game.

wow, zombies! how creative. extra points though for the bikini hottie. not.

Wow, they really touched up on the graphics.
It's actually looking pretty good now.

But wait.... it appears to be missing something. How are the physics?

*looks at last screen*


WOO!

Looking very Far Cry in that last screen... If its an open Island survival game with lots of cool weapons and some vehicle stuff then it should be decent =)

Think it could be termed as 'scally catharsis', Sheps. ;)

not sure about this. i actually enjoyed call of juarez. was a pretty nice engine as well. but i've had too many bad experiences with open island games. they either arnt open enough, or are so open you have to travel 100 miles before you come across anything worth doing.

The more zombie games, the better. Every Zombie game is a day 1 purchase for me.
