As if it were advertising a paradox, Techland and Deep Silver have reanimated the corpse of Dead Island and they have taken from a tomb in which many had already buried. Announced several years ago but in the background at the expense of other titles such as Call of Juarez or nail’d, Dead Island promised to be a survival horror different and very attractive, especially in the early steps of the present generation, a time that gender had very few representatives. But these days it has poured more title than in any previous year, which is largely a surprise but at the same time, it is a pleasure for lovers of terror.
With the new trailer that has already been distributed very previous version of the game to have had access U.S. website IGN Dead Island comes alive with more force than they ever had. In fact, the feeling that the years of silence have not been wasted and that Techland studies, it was slowly giving way to a work that may be able to accomplish great things. Or, at least, that promises great things, and since its release should not be too far (this year 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3), most of the promises made should be polished enough to be able to show with the launch so close. Undoubtedly, what has attracted most attention in the final hours was the trailer we mentioned a few lines ago. One of the most beautiful videos and care that have been in recent years, able to convey many sensations and emotions to the viewer in three-minute sequence. The excellent understanding of the times in a short story is narrated forward and back, combining the scenes so that when the end of the trailer (the exact middle of the story), the user is aware of everything that happened and will , with a little extra dramatic touch showing the arrival of the title family to the island which takes place on the zombie holocaust.
The trailer shows us the degree of survival expertise we face, the fight for our lives, searching for objects to defend, the zombies that we face and even makes clear to us that anyone can fall victim to the infection . But his real aim is to introduce a facet, it seems, will be vital in the development of the adventure: the argument. Far from wanting to make a generic survival or a straightforward action shooter, wanted to deepen and offer an experience based primarily on the history, in which we learn to feel every loss and every moment as if the last breath of our existence.
Broadly speaking, the little that is known is that the game is set in the large Royal Palms resort on the island of Banoi, Papua New Guinea. It is an exotic tropical paradise, far from civilization and surrounded by the beautiful sea and green hills, so expensive that it is not available to anyone who stayed in that environment. However, holiday visitors are truncated due to an infection (it seems to be infected, not zombies, reviving a debate on gender very common) that starts to affect people and expands as we all know. The user must step into the boots of one of the last survivors of the slaughter, with the sole purpose of trying to escape the island.
It appears throughout the adventure will go uncovering many secrets and mysteries of the game, as the source of infection. Just do not know whether the choice of character will influence the way we live and understand events, but it would certainly be an interesting addition would enhance the replay value of the work. We will have several characters to us, but we do not know much about them and Sam B is the only one who has revealed to date. The interesting thing that we have several characters lies not only in the single player experience, but also the attractive possibility to enjoy the game with a cooperative mode for up to 4 users. Again, no one knows how it will affect the adventure play alone or with friends.
To survive and try to get out alive on the island will have to give the best of ourselves, and promises to be a very complex experience that will not give even a second’s respite. And it is that this is a sandbox game with dyes, set in an open world, whose action unfolds in first person and to which are added some touches of RPG. No doubt a combination of the less peculiar to be seen how they work, although initially sufficiently close to Dead Rising. But Techland claims that its bid is far more serious, cruel and intense than that of Capcom, as shown by the famous trailer. This is achieved, inexorably, through a very different gameplay.
The fact that the game does not involve first-person shooter that is, precisely because guns will have the least throughout the adventure, but focuses more on action and combat . There will be some firearms, but are very rare and are very well hidden, as would occur in reality, so our arsenal is anything we can to get their hands, such as axes, knives, bats or pipes. These weapons have a limited duration and will break with use, so we’ll have to figure it our actions in order to successfully overcome the many clashes we have to overcome, especially where there are several enemies that attack you. Indeed, those infected will be our biggest problem, as they will have different shapes, sizes and abilities according to their physical form when they were alive, but in general with superhuman strength who can become our greatest nightmare. Have to wait and see how all these elements are reflected on the screen and, above all, to see what technical level is able to get Techland. The long years of development and different images and properties that had arisen in the past may be present or not in final production, and CG trailer is not indicative of the level to be achieved in paragraph ingame. So have to wait to be displayed in the title finishing aspects to settle a better idea of what to expect from this production.
An interesting proposal
Innovate in a genre like survival horror is difficult, but even if production is focused only on the zombies. However, Techland is going to try a long way of development on their backs from which it never has been too. Even now, when in theory goes on sale later this year, secrecy is still possible. But unlike in the past, this time we have been enjoying a full cooked trailer that has enchanted many fans of the genre throughout the network. This video is not significant for what may be the final game, but since then has managed to revive interest in a title that disappeared from the map considered. And if the promises are fulfilled, we may be to a degree that will satisfy the increasingly demanding fans of the genre of survival horror. Hopefully we will soon get out of duas.
