On An Open Slay: Dead Island Details

After the recent extraordinary trailer for Dead Island, it's safe to say our interests are piqued. So an interview with the developers detailing the numerous ways to slay zombies is just what we're after. Fortunately, GameTrailers did just such a thing. Unfortunately it does not offer any in-game footage, but at least there's a nice man explaining things.

Some hoping for a pure survival thriller may be disappointed to learn that by the end of the game you'll be a "zombie killing machine". But they promise it won't be wacky, and real-world restrictions will liomit your abilities, which is great news.

They also say it's unlikely that the game will feature child zombies. It was just for the trailer, they say. But they confirm it's out in 2011.
