Moresby is a major location featured in Dead Island. This third world city is the capital of Banoi Island. Most of the population resides in the city. Zombies reside here, but also survivors who aren't friendly to the Heroes and will attack them for their resources and equipment.
The city suffered the worst during the outbreak due to its high population density, and evidence of a doomed battle against the infected litters the streets in the form of abandoned police vehicles and ambulances, smashed road barriers and hastily created barricades made out of crashed cars, buses and dumpsters, many of which clearly were broken though. The city roads for the most part are impassible to cars, due to the sheer numbers of crashed vehicles all over the main roads, meaning that traveling on foot is the only viable option.
Moresby is split into various sections, neighborhoods and small towns, including Shanty Town, Langar Road, Queenscliffe, and the Market District. Underneath Moresby is the city's sewers, and there are various access points within Moresby to enter the sewers.
