A new gameplay tour trailer has been released for the highly anticipated zombie game, Dead Island. The trailer is quite extensive and it focuses on several key things that make it different from other zombie games. One key thing that really stuck out for Dead Island was the open world mixed with first person. Judging by the trailer it seems that they really managed to make this a huge open world. You literally have the entire island at your disposal and you can do whatever you please. From the main missions to just cruising around and running over zombies, the options really are endless.
It looks very promising, but I am not sure if it can live up to all of the hype surrounding it. Originally, it was slated for a 2008 release, but it received several delays and went off the radar for quite some time. Dead Island is scheduled for release on August 1st, 2011 and it will be available for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
