Techland has released a stunning new trailer for upcoming zombie survival game, Dead Island, which is now scheduled for a 2011 release.

First announced back in 2007, Dead Island is a FPS with RPG elements and a focus on hardcore zombie survival tactics - read: melee weapons, foraging for supplies and sandbox gameplay based around exploring a large tropical island.

Techland has apparently opted to strip most firearms out of Dead Island, giving the action a more realistic feel where weapons degrade over time, according to an IGN preview.

The game is currently set to use the Chrome Engine 4 and is planned for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime this year - though no exact date has been released yet.

The trailer, below, is definitely worth a look - and we've kindly included a recut version of it too, which shows the events in chronological order.
