Three new screenshots of Deep Silver's upcoming zombie action-RPG.
looking good, but how about some gameplay?
If there was any gameplay, I'm sure we'd be the first to see it on n4g. In the meantime, look theres a big, fat, slimey zombie!!!
I really don't see how the gameplay in this game is going to be fun. It's basically Dead Rising in first person, and I hated dead rising 2 (never played the first). I guess I don't see a real hook to it. You're just gonna be mashing the attack button and backpeddling, right? I doubt there is a block (since zombie bites are lethal in most stories), so the combat is probably going to just be repetitive. I'm sure it will look good and have cool dismemberment, but I am definitely not sold on this game being any fun at all.
I pity the fool who doesn't think killing zombies is fun :P
It does look good. It's suppose to be using the Chrome Engine 4 that was used in Sniper: Ghost Warrior, hence the large environments.
looks childs play
Looks better then I expected, but lets wait until we see some gameplay.
I wonder how they'll implement the Rpg element of the game. Will be interesting to see.
I'm still getting left 4 dead vibes off this (which is a good thing in my book) hopefully they wont ham fist the RPG element.
Okay, I may be sick of seeing zombies in every video game nowadays, but there are some things about this one that appeal to me. 1: Melee combat. This is something that just isn't focused on enough in modern first person games. After playing Zeno Clash and Alien vs. Predator, I can safely say that it is funner than standard shooters. And in the case of Dead Island, I think that this will add urgency and a real sense of danger since you can't just mow down the zombies with your assault rifle. 2: Setting. I love the zombies on island resort. idea. It reminds me of the traditional voodoo zombies instead of modern bio-weapon gone wrong iterations. 3: Open world. The levels seem far more open and it appears that there is a lot to do, although this is just judging from screenshots.
Yeah, looks pretty interesting. I will definately be tracking this game closely.
