VIDEO: Dead Island may have the best teaser trailer for a game ever

Share

It’s not often we get worked up by a teaser trailer for a game over here at Tech Digest, let alone one that doesn’t even feature any actual gameplay, but we just couldn’t help but pass on this genius clip from upcoming zombie game Dead Island.

Playing out in reverse, it follows the gruesome fate of a trio of hapless holiday makers as they are overcome by the zombie horde. It’s pretty breathtaking to say the least.

Dead Island, first announced in 2007 and until now thought to be dead-in-the-water, is now due for release later this year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It’s a first-person adventure with a focus on brutal melee combat, set in the tropical locale of the Royal Palms Resort in Papua New Guinea. Four player drop-in-drop-out co-op is set for inclusion, as well as lite-RPG elements.

To say we’re excited about the Deep Silver developed game is an understatement. We’ll keep you posted on any new news as we get it, but for now revel in the teaser tailer posted above.
