Dead Island Teaser is Bloody and Backwards

An incredible new CG teaser trailer for Call of Juarez dev Techland's zombie-infested holiday, Dead Island, has surfaced, showing the gore-laden events of a family getaway gone spectacularly awry when the undead decide they want to join in.
Played out in reverse, the trailer starts with a little girl lying still on the grass, before you realise where she came from and how she got there. Then all hell breaks loose as a family strive to fight for their lives in the confines of their hotel room. Even the zombie bell boy is out for their blood.
This video also marks the return of Techland's long-gestating project after three years. Dead Island will apparently be a first-person title with an emphasis on brutal melee combat a la Condemned, but in a sandbox game world with multiple playable characters and 4-player co-op. Sound pretty damn fine to us.
Check out the new trailer for Dead Island and look forward to hopefully seeing the game release sometime this year.
