So it turns out Dead Island won't be out in August, but rather one month later in early September. Techland and Deep Silver have confirmed that the game will be out in North America on September 6, then September 9 internationally. Not too bad.
Additionally, we've got another Dead Island trailer for you all today, and it focuses mostly on melee combat, which should appease anyone who has been worried about the inclusion of guns. The trailer demonstrates a variety of melee weapons in action, whether you're smacking a zombie with a baseball bat or slashing it open using a machete. Of course, you could just give the undead a good ol' fashioned kick to the face -- that looks equally effective.
