The Dead Island Trailer (UPDATE: Trailer added)
On Wednesday, all of us were blown away by the reversed Dead Island trailer. One of the first emotionally stimulating game trailers in a while, let’s take a look into the video.
Did anyone notice the similarities to Lost, including the eye, the lighthouse, the skewed use of time, and of course the ISLAND? Also, the simple piano and cellos may be a nod to Michael Giacchino’s music. This openworld game looks like it will definitely take us on an emotional journey into the world of a family of 3 (possibly more or less). With animations on par with Pixar and beyond, Deep Silver looks to be giving us a very cinematic and character driven journey while we dive into the lives of the father, mother, and daughter. The only information released so far is the fact that it’s an open world first person zombie survival that takes place on an island. Are we alone? Are the zombies in the video our former companions throughout the story? Will this open world also have an open ended story much like Heavy Rain? Only time will tell. All I know is that every gamer on the planet has amazingly high hopes after watching this breathtaking trailer. What are your thoughts?
Let’s hope for the best with this 2011 release for the 360, PS3, and PC.
