Since the release of the cinematic trailer, most of the focus has been on the single player experience in Dead Island. However, there is a 4 player co-op mode that allows you to jump right into a friend's single player campaign or start a new one together.

As part of G4's E3 coverage, Dead Island publisher Deep Silver stopped by to show the first look at multiplayer footage from the game. We have embedded it for you, so continue reading to check it out...

"Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan’s fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game’s unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What’s more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay."

Dead Island will be available for the PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 on September 6th in North America and worldwide on September 9th.
