Dead Island launch trailer is alive

Atmosphere of teaser clip mixes with action-overload gameplay footage

TODO alt text

It's not hard to name the clip most people will remember as the standout trailer of the year. Dead Island's debut trailer was emotional, artful, and awesome. With the game’s September 6 launch date fast approaching, Techland isn’t shy about the pre-release hype the zombie title has enjoyed.

While the launch trailer won’t be taking home any Cannes film festival awards, like the reveal teaser did, today’s video shows off more of what actual matters with more gameplay and footage of the zombie infested island resort off the coast of Papua New Guinea.

If you haven’t already seen what happened when GamesRadar went to Dead Island, you should! And if you want to know if the game lives up to the hype in this launch trailer, you can read all about it in our review next Monday.
