Developer Deep Silver is proving themselves masters of the gut punch.

Deep Silver has released a new trailer for their upcoming zombie game, Dead Island. The trailer begins with beauty and paradise, but quickly degrades to utter destruction and, of course, zombies. This latest trailer is our first real look at the gameplay of Dead Island, although it’s kind of a “blink and you’ll miss it” sort of thing. But for comparison’s sake, prior to this trailer’s release, all we’ve been shown is a shockingly depressing CGI trailer for the title. So we’ll take what we can get. Also, take note of the final frames of this trailer which point to an upcoming extended E3 trailer for Dead Island.

OK, enough blabbering, cue that somber piano!
