    Crickey, although it shows little to no actual gameplay, I'm definitely interested. If the game can show the production values, story and emotional hooks that the trailer does, its a dead cert winner. How much does anyone know about the actual game though? Is it all co-op? All online? more RPG or Action game?

    From what i've read on IGN, upto 4 player co-op, mainly action with some rpg elements, some sort of levelling up/skill tree

    Epic trailer, will keep my eye on this one.

    Item degradation sucks though, it hasn't been a good addition to any game, ever.

    Just noticed that it had been in development since 2007, is Duke Nukem in it?

    Yeah, it looks pretty good.

    Agree with an earlier poster that Amnesia stands out. Especially considering the limited engine tech Frictional had at their disposal. It kinda makes you wonder what could be done with something like a Frostbite 2 or Cryengine 3, if the will was there to make something other than just another crappy generic shooter.

    Wow... that was disturbing. Major props to those involved making the trailer. Truly a testament of how a CGI mini film can evoke emotion from the audience. I watched both, but prefer the trailer as it was meant to be shown. Just imagine something like that 5 or 10 years from now when you wont be able to differentiate between CGI and actual film in a game.

    is that an accurate date? dead islands website just says "2011".

    i know retailers sometimes insert a date just as a place holder. when gamestop first put guild wars 2 up for preorder, they had an october or november 2010 release date listed even though there wasnt (and still isnt) an official release date.

    Dont know i can go on what they say on there site, they are usually good at getting release dates for pre-order on there site and being accurate, that is the date they are allowed to release the game as well so i would imagine its accurate.

    Bear in mind thought that is a UK release date..

    This game definitely has the potential to be an amazing zombie game (it might even dethrone the L4D series as the reigning zombie game champion if it's done spectacularly). I'm thinking of upgrading my laptop (it still needs to be a laptop b/c I'm still going to school D=) to play it ^^ b/c mine right now is running intel GMA >.>. Do you think a GTX 460M laptop graphics card could handle that game @ 1920x1080?

    Apparently they are going to make a memento style film about it because the trailer was so good!

    Just watched this trailer on steam... holy crap!

    Came back to bitty to see if you had anything written up on it and you guys are way ahead of me. If the game lives up to the trailer itll be something else!
