Dead Island 2: First Look - E3 2014 - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, June 9, 2014

We kick off our E3 coverage this Undead Monday with... zombies! Dead Island is back and this time, a new developer, Yager, is on hand for an undead misadventure in California. 



Widely known as quite possibly the most depressing announcement trailer of a video game ever, Techland's first trailer for Dead Island triggered one hell of a feverish rave over the lines that can be crossed for a zombie survival horror game. And even till today, we have to confess that the trailer is every bit as poignant yet maniacal as ever.


Which explain our surprise over the announcement trailer of the second installment in the franchise now developed by Yager instead of Techland. And frankly, the new trailer is rather humorous. Check out the clip embedded right below.





Details from the official press release:

California Dreamin': Deep Silver Reveals Dead Island 2 at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo

The zombie apocalypse has hit the iconic, sunny realms of California as Deep Silver announced Dead Island 2 today. Building on the strengths of the multi-million best-selling hit Dead Island, Dead Island 2 delivers a shared survival, open-world zombie experience set in a clash of natural beauty and bloody horror and violence: paradise meets hell once again!

Developed by award-winning studio Yager, Dead Island 2 is scheduled for release in spring 2015 on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC.

Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine. Now a restricted zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for renegades who seek adventure, glory and a fresh start. Combining the classic Dead Island elements of immersive close combat, action and role-playing, Dead Island 2 features crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters in taking players from the iconic Golden Gate to the celebrated beachfront boardwalk of southern California’s Venice Beach.

Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Dead Island 2 brings back its acclaimed, seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a truly social, new-gen multiplayer experience. Dedicated classes offer a variety of gameplay: From the action-oriented berserker to the stealthy hunter, every character offers a different style of play. An in-depth skill system allows the player to handcraft their own heroes and weapons.

Here's the official synopsis of the title:

When it comes to the apocalypse, it’s all about your attitude. Dead Island 2 is Dead Island as it was always meant to be – an intense, visceral romp through the sunshine state that invites you and your friends to unlock your zombie slaying potential and get lost on a permanent summer vacation.


Dead Island 2 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2015.
