Techland has unleashed its latest trailer for Dead Island, a zombie-slashing action adventure that sees players frantically trying to survive a zombie invasion on a lush tropical island.

Dubbed ‘Tragedy Hits Paradise' the new trailer is billed as a teaser before the big gameplay unveil at E3 in June. The trailer shows the stunning holiday island of Banoi, as well as some of the zombie character models we can expect to see in-game.

Dead Island will feature a fully-fledged single player campaign inspired by classic zombie movies, as well as a four player co-op mode. Gameplay takes place from the first person perspective with a strong focus on melee combat. Players can also expect deep weapon customisation and character development. Dead Island is due for release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. A release date has yet to be announced.
