BradyGames has announced an official Dead Island Map App, the only authorized app yet for the game. The app will be released on the iTunes App Store on September 6 along with the game’s North American release.
The app was developed in conjunction with publisher Deep Silver, and contains detailed maps of every square mile of Banoi Island, the setting of the game. The maps are scrollable and zoomable. The app also pinpoints the location of every collectible ID Card, Banoi Herald excerpt, and Investigation Tape—more than 150 items total. Each item is accompanied by a screenshot detailing the location and descriptive text to guide users to the exact spot in question. The app also features an Objective Complete check box that allows users to track which items have been located and which ones remain undiscovered. An interactive Legend allows users to toggle on/off any of the collectible types and show/hide hidden or found items. Official Dead Island music will be included in the app too.
Here are the features of the app, as given by the devs themselves:
- Explorable maps of every area in the game
- Locations of all collectibles, including:
- ID Cards
- Banoi Herald excerpts
- Investigation Tapes
- Objective Completion tracking
- Official music from the game
The Dead Island Map App will be available for $2.99 from the iTunes App Store on September 6, 2011.
