E3: Dead Island gets bloody new trailer, release date

Deep Silver has unleashed a new E3 trailer for Dead Island. Titled, “Dead Island Begins,” the video shows the transformation from raunchy holiday resort to barbaric zombie nightmare.

I am pleased to see a trailer that’s a bit more honest, dispensing with the insincere “emotion” angle to show rap music and brainless slaughter. 

The game has also been given a release date. You can cattle-prod a zombie in the face on September 6!
