Dead Island official cover

Here is the official cover for dead island as showed on the French retailer Game.fr

It's listed as a limited edition so we ca presumed there will be some DLCs as Bonuses. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Ooooo. I dont think this box art will be allowed to be shown on the shelves in public. Its so grusome parents will complain or the media will. You just know it will.

That's what they want, free advertising ;-)

It's true. Nothing like a bit of controversy to publicise your game.

might be a top shelf game.

What on earth is up with this site's atrocious grammar? Fair enough if English is the author's second language, but there's no excuse for not capitalizing game titles and not finishing certain words.

(Oh, and the boxart's pretty cool.)

Look's realy nice, wil prob be other cover in the US becaus of crazy people.

But in EU this could be used, hope so since its awesome :)

I hope it will be use too but papers like the Daily Mail will find something wrong with it. They will probably claim if you stand near it you have a chance of catching cancer

Generic zombie game is generic.

Nice to know they kept the hanging person though.

I still wish the game kept to its emotional theme as seen with the CGI trailer. Like, Imagine a game cross between Heavy Rain and Dead Rising

This is from the European version though. Last time I checked the Hanging person was changed in the US cover.

The US cover will probably have the characters going AMERICAAAAA or something. like 70% of Us Covers :P

No seriously....what the fuck are you talking about.....
ShadowArchangel  +   1594d ago
Since I can't really reply to Jack Pyro. lol

That's what I'm talking about the dead island logo.

And about the Characters going America, it was a humorous attempt of saying that most of the box arts in the USA, represent the main characters in some dramatic pose. One of the best examples is Heavy Rain Box Arts difference.

Oh, awesome; we get to see the cover, but we still haven't seen a lick of real time gameplay.

Who's "we"? If you haven't been following the game, that's your fault. Go to GameTrailers.com to see a short developer walkthrough.

Thanks for the link! I had yet to see any footage and now I can say with certainty that this game looks boring as all Hell. Great art design and set pieces but running all over with a bat for 20 hours? No thanks.
