Dead Island, the zombie action game published by Deep Silver on September 6th in North America and on September 9th in the rest of the world, has secured Number 1 chart position in several important territories across the world.
By the end of the week Deep Silver will have shipped around 2 million units of Dead Island globally in its first week of availability. In the UK, Dead Island ranked number 1 in the all formats chart last week and is also leading the all formats charts in France and Spain, console and PC charts in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria and Xbox 360 charts in Italy.
"Our new IP Dead Island has already proven to be a huge success on a global scale for Deep Silver only one week after its release in North America." says Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media. “With Dead Island a number 1 in several important retail territories, this success has also confirmed our standing as a global publisher and has once again proven our position as Europe’s No. 1 retail distributor.”
Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort.
Dead Island was released worldwide for the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
