According to Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb's blog, Dead Island goes on the Games with Gold docket tomorrow, making the open-world zombie thriller free to download for Xbox LIVE Gold members from February 1 - 15.

Now's the perfect time to visit a gallery of recent Dead Island screenshots from "K-Putt" of the incomparable Dead End Thrills Flickr group. No no no, your Xbox 360 screens won't look as good as K-Putt's. They snapped these shots on a PC at 7200 x 3000, then got down to the dirty work of post-processing the images to look even prettier. I'm not worried about all that. I'll just lick my chops until I get to try out Dead Island for the very first time, a game that could've been a 2011 game of the year contender.
