Dead Island goes gold
The game offers single and multiplayer support and will be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows gaming platforms
Dead Island has officially gone gold. The open-world zombie game was developed by Techland and is being published by Deep Silver.
"Only teamwork can get the four different protagonists of Dead Island through the seemingly insurmountable odds and dangers that await them on the zombie infested tropical island of Banoi," a press release from Deep Silver said. "Their different skillsets complement each other and give them the ability to oppose the hordes of zombies that await them around every corner of the former holiday paradise.
Coinciding with the announcement of the game's gold status, a new trailer was also released which shows off the game's cooperative mode. You can view the video here.
The game is based around the Palms Resort in fictional Banoi, which is off the coast of Papua New Guinea. Dead Island offers both single and multiplayer gaming and will be available via optical media and digital distribution.
The game was originally scheduled for release in 2008 but was ultimately pushed back to 2011. Dead Island is expected to hit stores on September 9 and will be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows gaming platforms.
