Dead Island welcoming tourists on September 6

Sure, you could spend a weekend at Bernie's this fall, but Deep Silver and Techland are hoping you'll choose to pay a visit to Dead Island instead. The publisher-developer duo has just announced a September 6, 2011 release date for the game in North America, with the rest of the world getting it on September 9.

As one partygoer finds out in the latest trailer for the game, being a drunken fool on an island resort during a concert is a great way to ensure a rough morning. Rather than the usual hangover and list of regrets, though, he wakes up to an island-wide zombie infestation. Sorry dude!
