The first trailer was a bit of a sad affair (and a chronological nightmare), but this new in-game teaser for Dead Island is a more casual affair, taking the scenic route through the island resort of Banoi. More importantly, it’s a teaser of the main E3 trailer, apparently. With E3 in just a few weeks, this makes for a good excuse to get the gears going.
The game is due out later this year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
If you haven’t already seen the amazing trailer for Dead Island then stop wasting time and click here. The game will have you on a tropical island fighting for your life in the middle of a zombie outbreak.
Developer Techland was previously making the game without a publisher, but it seems it has finally found a home at Deep Silver. It is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and is due out later this year. Enjoy seven new high-resolution screenshots below and don’t forget to check out the trailer.
Easily the best trailer of the year so far. It is simply amazing.
Dead Island is being made by Techland for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s going to combine first-person action and role-playing with a clear emphasis on storytelling. Judging by the trailer, the storytelling part is down at least.

If you needed any more reasons to go to the Games Convention in Leipzig, this is it:
Special games have a need for special measures and loyal fans deserve a reward. Developer Piranha Bytes, publisher JoWooD Productions and co-publisher Deep Silver are proud to announce the official Gothic 3 camp in the very heart of the Games Convention in Leipzig.
From the 23rd to the 27th (the camp is opened on 24th) of August, the exhibition space between halls 2 and 4 of the fair in Leipzig will be transformed into a fantastic scene. Utilizing hundreds of square meters, a medieval market, live action role playing swordfights and the public barbecuing of a suckling pig will ensure a Gothic-styled atmosphere. Other attractions will be provided as well as the opportunity for fans to deploy their own tents to provide a base while spending exciting hours with the developers. Only a few days after Piranha Bytes called their followers to arms, more than 300 fans enrolled for the campsite.
Gothic 3 is scheduled for release this October.
