Share And Comment

Deep Silver and Square Enix announced today a collaboration in which Square Enix will be the Americas region distributor for Dead Island, the highly anticipated zombie action game with role-playing elements for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PCs. This is a major endorsement of support for Dead Island that Square Enix thought it was solid enough to get behind it. This should only help a title that after a classic announcement trailer has a whole lot of expectations to live up to.

Developed by Techland, Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. The engaging survival-focused gameplay aspects are combined with a rich and immersive storyline in which a small group of people find themselves in a tropical paradise turned into total chaos and carnage after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

With firearms and ammunition being scarce, the player must utilize day-to-day items as weapons for self-defense to fight off zombie hordes in intense, gruesome melee combat. Featuring four customizable, unique character classes and engrossing role-playing elements combined with an intense four player co-op experience, Dead Island stands out as one of the most comprehensive zombie experiences to date.

Dead Island will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year.
