Dead Island PC
Developed by Techland Dead Island is a first-person game involving survival horror and action. It was published by Deep Silver and mainly revolves around role with the characters.
This game is staged in a fictional island, island of Banoi, off the coast of Papua New Guinea which was once the centre stage for tourist with a large tropical resort. The story begins the night after a party at the hotel when the four main characters are awakened by the hotel’s emergency intercom calling for an evacuation. The four, a spy for the Chinese government disguised as a hotel desk clerk Xian Mei, a rapper Sam B, and a former football star Logan and his bodyguard Purna soon find out that most of the island population has been overtaken by a contagious infection causing zombie-like characteristics.

As there try to get out of the hotel they are rescued by a lifeguard John Sinamoi and James Stein. They soon discover that they are immune to the infection and have to try and get out of the island. The group soon comes into contact with more survivors at a church and others at the police headquarters. In a bid to get out of the island they also come across Colonel Ryder White who thinks he can make an anti-virus from the immune subjects to cure his infected wife but unfortunately his attempts are futile. He later is attacked by the wife and has to use a flawed vaccine that instead turns him into a monster and the group has to kill him. The group is however able to escape out of the island using White’s helicopter and they plan a course towards Sydney.

Game Play

The game features open world roaming covering different large area. The player enjoys a first person perspective and most of which is in combat and completing different quests. The player gains experience as he/she completes the tasks and also killing enemies. The game also feature experienced based character customization. As you the player advances he/she levels up and gains health and stamina and can also invest the skill points.

In the beginning part of the game combat is centred mostly on melee attacks with melee weapons consisting of blunt blades and clubs. Although firearms are available in the game play they come much later and the available weapons are generated randomly and can be found in predefined areas in the open world and also on enemies. The weapons can be upgraded up to four times giving them more destructive power with each upgrade.

The game also features a stamina bar that determines how long the player can carry out physical tasks such as running, jumping or using melee weapons. To regain stamina the player has to stop and rest. Zombies also have different abilities and classes with some being more powerful than others so as the player advances they will notice that with each levelling up so do the zombies.
