Get ready for your return to Dead Island, a paradise to die for!

Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

Dead Island 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.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan’s fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game’s unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What’s more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.

With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland’s acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

Key Features:

  • First-person melee combat
  • 4-player coop
  • Weapon customization
  • Set on an gorgeous open world tropical island
  • RPG elements for character development
  • Hordes of gruesome zombies

Very frustrating but fun game

Chase_UC | Sept. 5, 2015 | See all Chase_UC's reviews »

It's buggy, it's glitchy, it'll make you rip your hair out at times, but it is so much fun. Nothing beats the satisfaction you get when you cut, smash, electrocute, burn, slice, explode, poison, run over and kick zombies. There's so many ways to kill zombies and there's a pretty good variety of them. Story is somewhat shallow yet intriguing enough to keep you going (but let's be honest, you're gonna have so much fun destroying zombies that you'll forget about the story). I highly recommend buying the GOTY edition just for the Ryder White DLC because it adds a very interesting twist to the story. I'd highly recommend this game to everyone, but be aware that it can be frustrating at times


A good start to the franchise

I enjoyed this game but I like the second game better! thats aside i had a great bit of funny playing this one as well as the second one and 4 player coop is always a plus for me. I rate this 90/100 cause all the quests get jumbled together and would auto switch to a quest I didn't wanna do and was focused on another quest. Still a great deal and worth getting.


Decent Zombie Survival RPG game

Highlander9782 | June 25, 2015 | See all Highlander9782's reviews »

This game had the best video game trailer I had ever seen and got me pumped to get this game. My expectations were a little too high so thats why I'm a little underwhelmed with the result. The graphics are decent, but the controls and gameplay are a little clunky and repetitive. You're going to be doing a lot of quests in this game, and many of them include finding supplies and helping people. I'm a big fan of Left 4 Dead 2, so I was hoping for similar gameplay but this is more RPG with crafting weapons, but the cool thing is the drivable cars to travel around the island. This is a fun game to play with 3 other friends, and the gore and bleed is plentiful when you're hacking and slashing zombies. I'm looking forward more to Dead Island 2 which is going to have 8 player co-op but this is a decent zombie killing game in a unique island setting.


Great zombie game

NosenadaXY | June 8, 2015 | See all NosenadaXY's reviews »

Well, first of all, this game is perfect to play with friends, (yeah, the story) yes, only if you want to enjoy it 100%, In this game you need to explore a lot if you want amazing weapons, and you have to do a lot of missions to get to your way to get out of the Island, the graphics are great but it had a problem with the movements ( FPS) I think, but it won't be a big problem, there are lots of zombies and some specials you know, like the boomer, etc.. You should install this one and then get the Dead Island Riptide, It will be worth..


At first I thought it was too slow...

PlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »

At first I thought it was too slow for a zombie game. I was expecting something more like Left 4 Dead 2, with hordes of zombies and weapons. But Dead Island is a solid game, very enjoyable and not easy being a RPG. Graphically, it's beautiful and well optimized. I can run it on my laptop at max settings without problem. The story is good, some secondary missions are very stupid, but you can always turn them down and keep on. If I have something 'bad' about the game is the sunny lightning and the zombies, that are often women wearing bikini and men in swimming suits. Not that is a problem, but we're used to more... 'urban zombies' if you know what I mean. The GOTY edition includes everything, so get ready for zombies!
