Dead Island T-shirt (Medium) Product Details
Released on TBD
Techland's eagerly awaited first-person action game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC was able to overcome last week's leader Deus Ex: Human Revolution, no doubt thanks to the buzz created by its stunning debut trailer earlier this year.
Smash hit zombie survival game Dead Island has shambled past the two million sales mark, publisher Deep Silver has announced.
Developer Techland's innovative blend of first-person action, RPG customisation and survival horror thrills has proven a big draw among gamers since its debut earlier this month, topping the charts across the US and Europe.
The UK has been no exception to the game's appeal, with the game having now led the all-formats chart for a fortnight, becoming Deep Silver's biggest-selling British release ever in the process.
Dead Island has been big news since its debut trailer - an artful, moving film involving a young family succumbing to a zombie onslaught - became an internet sensation earlier this year.
The finished game appears to be living up to the hype, with players relishing its open-world exploration, intense melee combat and four-player cooperative action.
Chart-topping, zombie-chopping genre hybrid Dead Island will be making its way to the multiplex, thanks to Hollywood studio Lionsgate, which snapped up the film rights this week.
The game caught their eye when the teaser trailer went viral. Playing out in reverse, the trailer showed how a young girl at a tropical resort was caught up in a zombie outbreak, infected and then thrown to her death from a hotel window. It is this approach that will inform the film, not the storyline of the game, which followed four bad-ass characters as the carved a path through the undead to escape.
'This is exactly the type of property we're looking to adapt at Lionsgate', said studio head Joe Drake (no relation to Nathan). 'It's sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love. It also has built in brand recognition around the world, and franchise potential.'
No actors have been signed, but the film will be produced by Sean Daniel, who previously brought us The Mummy franchise. He also played Policeman #2 in Sam Raimi's Darkman, so there you go.
Lionsgate has announced that it has acquired an option to make a film adaptation of the smash hit zombie survival game Dead Island.
The movie studio has snapped up the rights to Deep Silver and Techland's Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC title within weeks of its debut, with the game having topped the UK all-formats chart for a fortnight while shifting two million copies worldwide.
According to Lionsgate's producers, the film will be inspired primarily by the sensational teaser trailer that became a worldwide internet phenomenon earlier this year, before going on to win the prestigious Golden Lion in Cannes at the International Festival of Creativity.
The emotionally powerful short film, which chronicled the story of a young family's demise at the hands of the undead in a striking non-linear fashion, received more than ten million views online with two days of its debut.
Lionsgate's Joe Drake said the movie will feature the same focus on emotional stories, relationship drama and fragmented storytelling.
He added: 'This is exactly the type of property we're looking to adapt at Lionsgate - it's sophisticated, edgy and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love.'
Having survived the zombie carnage on the tropical island of Banoi, fans eager for Dead Island sequel Riptide will have a whole new blood-soaked holiday destination, called Palanai, according to creative director Sebastian Reichert.
"The request from the fans after the success of Dead Island was very clear – they want more and they want it now!" Reichert told VG247. "However, creating a whole new setting will take a lot of time. So the question shifted to ‘do we have enough ideas in the same setting to offer another great experience, or do we have to shift the setting to deliver a full experience?’ Dead Island: Riptide is the answer to that. We changed the setting partially, built in new features fitting to this different environment and now we make sure the experience rocks again."
"For example, in Dead Island, the beauty of the island was often created by man – the beach resort, hotel, etc - and the terror was created by the zombies. This main design theme has changed. Palanai is an island full of natural beauty, for example, wonderful waterfalls, contrasted by natural destruction caused by storms, monsoons and rain. And of course the zombies."
Riptide will add a new character to the quartet introduced in the first game, as well as improving various gameplay mechanics. Sticking with melee or ranged weapons, for instance, will gradually increase your stats for that weapon type.
Dead Island: Riptide is due for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year. If you want to get up to speed on the series, the Dead Island: Game of the Year edition is on sale now for just £12.99.
