Description

The Zombie apocalypse returns with this content packed edition of the fan favourite. It´s time to return to the beautiful, zombie-infected shores of Banoi!

With the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition players get the chance to experience the full story behind the Banoi Zombie Outbreak. The GOTY includes

  • Dead Island
  • Bloodbath Arena DLC
  • Ryder White DLC
  • Blueprint "The Ripper" Weapon
  • 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

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!

One of the best zombie games I've ever played

habsvision | April 15, 2015 | See all habsvision's reviews »

This game has it all. A massive open world that spans 3 large maps, amazing graphics, great combat with plenty of bloody decapitation, almost endless crafting possibilities, an engaging story, 4-player online co-op, and the list goes on and on. Most criticism of this game came long before all of the bugs were fixed. Do yourself a favour and buy this game right now.

Not the game it was at launch

Ezery | April 14, 2015 | See all Ezery's reviews »

I was among many people excited for Dead Islands release, and disappointed when it turned out to be such a buggy, messy flop. However, upon returning to the game on PC some time later, I've found it to be much better than what we got at launch. The bugs have been wiped off, and all that's left is a pure zombie-bashing action RPG. If the horrible bugs turned you away, the game is definitely worth a second try now that it's patched up, though it's not without flaws still. While the bugs have been resolved, their is a couple of small niggles that remain. Namely some weapons seeming very limp and unsatisfying to use, a glut of sidequests that can quickly fatigue a player(Though thankfully they can be ignored), and a slightly limp second half that abandons the tropical vacation island, for a drab grey city. So if any of that turned you away the first time, give it another miss, but if the only thing troubling you was bugs, I can say they're all but gone.
