Dead Island Screens Kick a Zombie Over the Edge


Don't forget about Dead Island! The open-world, melee-focused first person shooter made a big splash earlier this year with its backwards-slow-motion trailer. The tropically-set zombie game come packed to the brim with zombies and the means by which to dispatch them. As tired as I am with zombies in games, I think Dead Island offers a fresh look at the genre. Introducing an experience system and skill tree couldn't hurt the zombie-slashing experience, and it doesn't hurt that there's be a bit of a lull since the last undead-murdering simulator.

Here are eight new screens for the game, due out September 6 in the United States and September 9 elsewhere.
