Square Enix to distribute Dead Island

Developer signs agreement with Square Enix for upcoming zombie title

Posted on
Deep Silver and Square Enix announced today a collaboration in which Square Enix will be the Americas region distributor for Dead Island, the zombie action game with role-playing elements for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PCs.

“Square Enix’s impressive distribution and marketing capabilities, combined with their proven success with launching top-notch AAA titles, makes them the absolute best partner for Dead Island,” said Deep Silver Chief Operating Officer Geoff Mulligan. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with their dedicated and talented team and look forward to collaborating with them in order to bring Dead Island to gamers.”

Developed by Techland, Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of weapons. The survival-focused gameplay aspects are combined with a storyline in which a small group of people find themselves in a tropical paradise turned into total chaos and carnage after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

"Dead Island is a truly extraordinary title and we couldn’t be more excited about leveraging our unified Square Enix resources in bringing it to audiences in the Americas." said Mike Fischer, president and chief executive officer, Square Enix.

Dead Island will be released later this year.
