For those that know of, remember or if somewhere they still have what’s known as Desert Island Discs, you’ll know what the title refers to, but what the post is about is that the original musical composition from Dead Island’s announcement trailer has been released onto iTunes.
If you have iTunes and a spare 79p, you can buy the Dead Island Trailer Theme to enjoy over and over until your ears bleed or the game is released, whichever happens sooner.
So, what’s it about then, this game thingy…
Dead Island, the upcoming gruesome zombie slasher by renowned developer Techland, combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.
Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.
