Lock up the kids and keep the squeamish and the easily offended away. Dead Island is coming.
Today, Techland and Deep Silver have revealed that the highly anticipated zombie slayer will arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America on September 6. It shares the same release date as Insomniac's new shooter, Resistance 3 , and follows hot on the heels of Techland's other promising project, Call of Juarez: The Cartel , which is slated for a late summer release. Dead Island is the horrid and brutal story of vacationers on an island resort that is suddenly overrun by a terrible virus. Players will choose between four distinct character classes (leader, tank, jack-of-all-trades, and assassin), and we'll have to somehow survive the onslaught. There's a new E3 trailer for it, too, but it's just too out-of-control for me to embed here. If you haven't eaten recently, feel free to check it out .
We'll be interested to see how this one turns out…we're pretty sure there's gonna be lots and lots of blood.
