Dead Island packshot image
An open-ended game, centered on the challenge of survival on a zombie-infested island. The game uses a first-person perspective. However, the developers are claiming that the game will be far beyond a typical first-person shooter experience, mainly due to a bigger emphasis on melee combat, role-playing elements and a clear focus on story-telling.

Hi there.


You can run it on medium-high on resolutions like 1280x1024-1024x768-800x600. FPS will vary between resolutions and FPS should stay around 25-45 FPS.
