Zombies escape the island and head for Home
As we inch closer to Dead Island’s September release date, the zombies that inhabit the beach resort are getting restless. So much that they have escaped the island and managed to invade PlayStation Home.
Like the Killzone 3 campaign earlier this year, Home users can engage in various mission-based objectives to unlocked exclusive content for Dead Island or pre-order the game straight from your console.
When you enter Home Square, you’ll notice that things are changing. Sandy beaches, palm trees and even the ocean itself all give you the feeling of being at the Royal Palms Resort on the tropical island of Banoi. Oh, and zombies too.
Scattered across Home Square are 10 mini-game challenges that requires you to prove your skills in crafting items and pits your abilities against attacks from a rampaging zombie horde. You can either take on these challenges alone or with up to three friends in co-op play.
Completing all 10 challenges earns you the exclusive “Exploding Meat” in-game weapon for Dead Island. In addition there will be more levels and content added to the Dead Island Home campaign where you can earn various Home rewards such as the “Exploding Zombie Outfit” given to those who pre-order the game from the Dead Island-themed kiosk located in Home Square.
Now, go and earn those awesome Home rewards and the “Exploding Meat” weapon. Nothing says death to a zombie more than exploding meat in their face.
