The beach bunnies parade around on the sand in skimpy bikinis and the waiter brings another icy drink out to you on the lounge chair. A cool breeze blows in off the Pacific, cutting the heat around Banoi's flagship Royal Palms Resort. Completely cut off from the rest of the world, surrounded by vacationers with money to burn at this ultimate getaway spot, you smile, knowing this is paradise. But what happens when paradise is lost?
When a contagious zombie outbreak sweeps Banoi, effectively turning it into a Dead Island, it's up to you and three other individuals who are strangely immune to zombification to protect the survivors from the horror and try to find a way to escape. The island's open-world setting offers countless things to do and objectives to complete as you try to find out what's really going on in this zombie slasher action RPG. Collect and customize weapons to fight off the zombies in close-quarter melee combat. As you advance through the story, you will gain experience points, allowing you to unlock skill trees and develop your character. Take on the undead with up to three friends in the seamless multiplayer mode that allows you to drop in and out of each other's games at any time. Explore Ryder White's campaign and the all-new Bloodbath Arena in this Game of the Year Edition to learn more about the motivations of the game's antagonist and experience four new challenging arenas. In this edition fully loaded with new content, you also receive blueprints to the highly coveted Ripper weapon mod. Are you ready for the madness, carnage and chaos of this Dead Island?
