Dead Island, developer Techland’s upcoming first person, horror survival, action RPG is about to release in a week and to commemorate the game’s launch, publisher Deep Silver have tied up with Marvel to bring you the Dead Island comic absolutely free. Head right here to read it.
This comic serves as a prequel to the game and sheds some light on the game’s four playable characters. You have your washed out rapper who’s struggling to make ends meet, an undercover cop, a disgraced and currently un-employed football player and an honourable police officer fired for doing her job. All four characters find themselves on the beautiful island of Banoi that’s unfortunately overrun by zombies. Over here, they’ll have to work together if they want to make it out alive.
Dead Island releases for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC by the 6th of September 2011. The game won’t be releasing in India since Deep Silver doesn’t have a local distributor yet, so your best bet would be to order the game off Steam (PC) or online retailers.
