Deep Silver has announced Dead Island Retro Revenge, a throwback side-scrolling action game set within Techland’s zombie survival universe.
The game is a companion to the upcoming Dead Island Definitive Collection, however it will also be sold separately. Featured above, you can view the game’s slightly not-safe-for-work reveal trailer.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the game, via Deep Silver:
Hell-bent on saving his cat, Max must carve a bloody path through a zombie-infested California, tearing his way through hordes of the undead, battalions of corrupt soldiers, and a slew of evil-minded ex-cons. Pull off crazy combos, collect power-ups, wield super weapons, and unleash insane magic attacks as you fight to become the amazing 16-bit side-scrolling hero you’ve always believed yourself to be!
Features at a glance:
- Retro look meets melee-based combat
- Featuring leader boards, achievements and a level of depth beyond the genre
- Game mechanics include power-ups, super attacks and a cool combo system
While Dead Island Retro Revenge is set for an August 1st release, it will come with the Dead Island Definitive Collection, which includes both Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide, and is set for a May 31st release across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
