A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]gmail.com.

Starting at Friday midnight GMT, Left 4 Dead will be free for 24 hours for PC players who are Steam users. I’ve already raved about this game a bit, but allow me to reiterate that this is one of the greatest zombie games ever. If you’ve avoided the temptation thus far, give in and try it. (Kotaku)

Speaking of greatest zombie games ever, Kotaku has a short interview with Dead Rising 2 producer Keiji Inafune. The big reveal is that there will be non-combat skills. Specifically mentioned is riding a motorbike in badass fashion. Some of them will help the character level up, like in the first game, but none will be photography, which should make some players happy. It’s a video interview, and it is embedded after the jump and there’s lots more in it about the first game and the upcoming sequel. (Kotaku)

The latest content release for Call of Duty: World at War includes another zombie-killing map called Shi No Numa (Zombie Swamp). I haven’t played this one because I am anti-WWII games, even if they have zombies. Enough, already. That damn war has been played to death. Still, maybe you feel differently, in which case enjoy killing some more WWII-era zombies. (Kotaku)

IFC has got ahold of I Sell the Dead, a movie about grave robbers starring Dominic Monaghan and Ron Perlman. It’s coming August 14 to theaters and on demand. Is it a zombie movie? Well, the trailer (helpfully embedded after the jump) shows some reanimated corpses, so I am going to say provisionally speaking, it counts. (Dread Central)

Special thanks to Kotaku for giving me most of my daily zombie news. You get a zombie cookie. To the rest of you, sorry for the lateness of today’s post. My life interfered.

I Sell the Dead trailer

Is this a zombie movie? Well, this trailer does show some pretty lively corpses. Plus, I really like Dominic Monaghan, thanks to Lost, so I will see this without a doubt.
