The first look at this new gameplay trailer shows what an upgrade this is with the graphics.

Zombies have never looked so brutally beaten, torn, and sliced open as they stumble around the streets of L.A.

New weapons shown in the trailer also bring an exciting element to the game.

And, by the looks of things, there's plenty of choice for Zombie slayers everywhere.

With six new slayers to choose from in the game, this trailer follows Dani, who after getting bitten, has obtained some of that secret Z power for herself whilst still being human.

Each slayer has their own personality and set of skills. However, these can be altered in the card-based skill system.

If this has caught your fancy, then Dead Island will be releasing on March 21 2023.


This game will be released on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC.
