To build up hype for the upcoming zombie co-op game Dead Island, Playstation Home will feel the spread of the infection with a variety of Dead Island related mini-games.
“Terrifying zombies will lurk in the once peaceful Central Plaza and soon enough it will come to resemble the Royal Palms Resort on the tropical island of Banoi, with palm trees and beautiful tropical vegetation, a gorgeous beach and stunning view of the ocean, bringing the unique Banoi feeling to PlayStation Home visitors.
A Dead Island themed mini game will be available to PlayStation Home visitors in which players must prove their skills in crafting items and pit their abilities against attacks from a rampaging zombie horde. Just like the co-op mode in Dead Island this mini game can be played with up to 4 players in different play styles. In all, there are 10 mini-game challenges associated with the game users completing all 10 will be awarded with an exclusive in-game weapon “Exploding Meat”.
For a bit of relief players can have their photo taken with a zombie or take a zombie survival survey where they can prove their knowledge of the undead and have the opportunity to earn 4 free PlayStation Home rewards. At the end participants will be rated with their estimated chance of survival in a real zombie apocalypse.”
Sounds like a cool promotional stunt, so head on over to Playstation Home to get your zombie slaying fix.
