Press Release

Your tropical island escape - with Deep Silver at the E3 2011
Deep Silver presents Dead IslandTM, the highly anticipated action game with RPG elements, and the pirate-themed RPG Risen 2: Dark Waters at the E3

pic1st June 2011 – Hampshire, UK /… Deep Silver announced its lineup today for the E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, taking place between June 07-09, 2011 in Los Angeles. Deep Silver is proud to present two of its upcoming highlights at the E3: Dead Island, the game that caused an internet sensation with its announcement in February, and Risen 2: Dark Waters, a deep roleplaying game by well-known RPG developers Piranha Bytes.

Dead Island
Dead Island™, the upcoming gruesome zombie action game with RPG elements by renowned developer Techland, combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customisation of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on discovering and utilising items as weapons for self-defense and fighting off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

Dead Island will be released worldwide for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
