Deep Silver has revealed the world’s first gameplay footage of Dead Island 2, the bloodthirsty new title in the Dead Island series. The island paradises-turned-waking nightmares of the first two titles in the series have been dropped for a trip to Hollywood, as the zombie virus infects mainland USA.
This pre-alpha gameplay footage seems to have one thing on its mind and that’s spilling insane levels of claret, as you and up to seven other players fry ‘em, slice ‘em, shock ‘em, chop ‘em, and, in general, treat them like the hordes of meaty piñatas they are.
Spec Ops: The Line creators Yager have taken the reins of the series for the first time, as Dead Island 2 picks up several months after the events that tore apart Banoi islands. The US military has put California under full quarantine, and it’s up to you to make the best of a bad situation, turning this sun-filled prison into a bloody paradise.
Dead Island 2 is scheduled to release in Spring of 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you can’t get enough of Dead Island in the meantime, Deep Silver is also releasing Escape Dead Island later this year, an adventure game spin-off developed by Fatshark for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. What do you think of the gory new trailer? Is it a case of zombie overkill with three Dead Island games and Dying Light in the works, or can you not get enough?
