Techland recently filed a trademark for the title "Dead World." Cool titles get trademarked all the time, so what's the big deal? I'll tell you: Techland is the publisher of Dead Island, and that is a big deal. Dead Island is one of Co-Optimus' favorite titles of 2011, with its open world(-ish) gameplay, brutal melee combat, and most importantly, its four player online co-op. The game has done very well, so a sequel seems inevitable. Hopefully Dead World will have a smoother launch. If it's anything like its predecessor, the debut trailer is going to be awesome.
Dead Island is currently available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It supports four player online co-op.
