Dead Island passes two million sales

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.

Dead Island is available now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
