The E3 trailer for Dead Island is unleashed as Deep Silver confirms September release date

 

6th June, 2011 – Hampshire, UK/… Deep Silver today releases the E3 trailer, called “Part 2: Dead Island Begins”, for the highly anticipated zombie game Dead Island™.

Terrible zombie appearances strike the unsuspecting guests in the idyllic holiday resort on the tropical island of Banoi. Four individuals with distinctive backgrounds and abilities seem to be unaffected by the mysterious zombie outbreak. Will they be strong enough to stand against the zombie hordes, to protect the remaining survivors from a horrible fate and to flee the island?

The zombie apocalypse is near! Dead Island is set to be released in North America on September 6th and in the rest of the world on September 9th, 2011.

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.

Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Introduces Cross-platform Gaming With Help of Toys.

 

Like it or hate it Activison has come up with a clever way to create a Cross-platform game with Skylanders Spyro’s Adventures. With the use of collectable toys you could start up a game on say a 360, and continue the adventure on your friends PS3. This innovative way of gaming (in my opinion anyways) will also be release on the Wii and the 3DS. Read the press release to learn more:

 

New Adventure Game Allows Players to Bring Your Toys to LifeTM Across Consoles, Windows PC, Web, Handheld and Mobile Devices

London, UK – 6th June 2011 – Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) revealed today that Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, an entertainment breakthrough for the video game and toy industries, will deliver the first-ever cross-platform gameplay experience across the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Wii™, Nintendo 3DS™, a variety of mobile devices, Windows PC and the web.  Using the game’s Portal of Power™, players will bring their Skylanders interaction figures to life inside the game on any platform.  During console and handheld gameplay, each Skylander remembers skill advancements and level-ups, allowing players to take their leveled-up Skylanders to play on any of the other platforms. The company will showcase the game at the Electronic Entertainment Exposition, which takes place June 7th-9th at the Los Angeles Convention Center, in booth number 647 in the South Hall.

“Imagine a kid taking his Skylanders toy and bringing it to life on his X-Box 360 one day, then bringing it to life on his friend’s PS3 the next day, then bringing it to life inside his 3DS and playing it in the back of his parents’ car the next day, then bringing it to life on the web the day after that, all the while, building his character’s strength and powers across all of those platforms,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “It brings the physical and virtual worlds of play together in a whole new way.” 

When Activision hit the drawing board for Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, the blockbuster publisher turned to top Hollywood creative talent to create an engaging story-driven narrative. The game, toys and technology were developed by Novato-based developer Toys for Bob and the adventure-filled story was penned by two of the Academy Award-nominated writers of the original Toy Story movie, Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen.  The resulting franchise will offer families a line of highly collectible characters, an inviting story, and an immersive interactive entertainment experience when the game launches later this year.

Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure lets kids take on the role of a powerful Portal Master who can control over 30 different characters, including the beloved purple dragon Spyro. Each of these heroes is a protector of Skylands, an amazing mysterious world which has been taken over by a sinister Portal Master known as Kaos; a powerful enemy that has frozen the Skylanders as toys and banished them to Earth.  Only the players ofSkylanders Spyro’s Adventure can help return these heroes back to their world by embarking on an adventurous journey where they will explore mythical lands, battle menacing, outlandish creatures, collect treasures, and solve challenging puzzles as a part of a quest to save Skylands.
