New Dead Island Definitive Video Pays Homage to Original, Emotional 2011 Trailer

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Nothing goes together better than zombies and classical music. They're like salt and pepper, eggs and bacon or Bonnie and Clyde. Dead Island (Xbox 360) proved this by wowing audiences with its emotional E3 trailer for the 2011 release. Whether the game lived up to its initial hype or not is up for zombie game fans to debate, but nonetheless, publisher Deep Silver has decided to engage players' emotions once again in a new video.

It's described as a "classical ensemble of piano, two violins, a viola and cello, the video showcasing a re-recorded version of the emotional soundtrack." The video was created with "no lighting but only the trailer projected on their instruments while playing."

Dead Island Definitive Collection releases in just a few days on May 31st, and is the merging of the remastered Dead Island (Xbox 360) and Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360) with all DLC included. A new side-scroller, Dead Island Retro Revenge!, will also be included. The games are up for purchase separately as well. To see the new, upgraded visuals, have a look at some screenshots here.
