Dead Island: Definitive Collection embalms both games on May 31

There are too many metaphors to make about a zombie game coming back to life just a scant few years after its original release, so I'll do my best to refrain from here on out. No promises, though. Dead Island and its expansion Riptide ...   read

Good lord, not another Dead Island

It's impressive how much Deep Silver has milked the Dead Island name over the past five years. You know, considering a trailer, of all things, is the zombie franchise's claim to fame. So it comes as no surprise that the publisher is looking...   read

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18

Dead Island 2
You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like.    read

Dead Island Epidemic is a 'ZOMBA,' not a MOBA, get it right
