Dead Island would be my vacation choice!

If you were stuck on a deserted island who would it be with? Kim Kardashian, Channing Tatum, zombies? My pick would definitely be Zombies because who wouldn't want to try and survive a zombie apocalypse.

With the newly released teaser trailer for the game called Dead Island here is your chance to kill zombies in a remote location. At least you'll have nice weather while zombies try to tear you apart limb from limb.

You have to watch the trailer for this game. The trailer is shot in reverse which I thought was an interesting twist. The trailer keeps your interest throughout the whole 3 minutes as you anticipate what could happen next to these unlucky vacationers. 

At first glance at the cut scene I thought to myself, am I watching a cut scene to Final Fantasy or am I watching a zombie game. The graphics are definitely something to look at like miss Kim Kardashian herself, but hopefully she wont be in this game because I wont hesitate is she is. If its a zombie apocalypse, I'm gonna do everything it takes to survive.

But that's enough about the trailer just go watch it, its definitely entertaining. What you want to know about are the details on the game.

Dead Island is set on a resort island called Banoi in Papua New Guinea. The resort you will be staying at, and trying to survive at, is the Royal Palms Resort.  Like all zombie movies or games you will be one of the few survivors left on the island and you will have to fight your way through the island with the hope that you will be rescued in the end.

The gameplay will be similar to a game like Fallout 3. You will have to scavenge for weapons and medical supplies because your supplies will always be dwindling. Your weapons will break down and which means you will have to be consistently looking for new weapons and ways to kill zombies.

There are few guns in Dead Island and even less ammo for those guns. So that means you are going to be getting up close and personal with these brain eaters. According to IGN gameplay is a little like this, " With each blow, their already sloughing flesh fell away in sprays of blood, revealing layers of muscle underneath."

Developers Deep Silver described the game as, "dark, twisted and gritty."

It is assured that this game will be more gruesome than any zombie game we have seen before.

Deep Silver described the style of game as, "first-person zombie-slasher/action-RPG."

Dead Island was originally announced in 2007, but the game had no developer. The game kind of roamed around until Deep Silver got its hands on it.

Dead Island is scheduled for a 2011 release, but there is no word on a date yet. Dead Island will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.


This family's room service will entail more zombies than they can handle.
