As for Dead Island the game, the title is set in a secluded resort and tells the brutal story of everyday civilians caught up in a zombie apocalypse. Gamers can choose among four character classes: the leader, the tank, the jack-of-all-trades, and the assassin archetypes. Every character starts out the same way--suddenly attacked by zombies at the hotel, knocked out, and dragged to a nearby pool house converted to a shelter.
