Developer Dambuster Studios and publisher Deep Silver are excited to welcome you and everyone else who is chomping at the bit to HELL-A at the end of this week when the ultra-anticipated Dead Island 2 launches. With excitement bursting like a zombie packed with grenades, a launch trailer is now available for your viewing pleasure. This fresh slice of kickass action only has to hold you over for a few more days until Dead Island 2’s main course of zombie-cleaving mayhem is ready to sink your teeth into.
The long-awaited next entry in the Dead Island franchise, Dead Island 2 places players in the shoes of one of six bombastic survivors – Amy, Bruno, Dani, Ryan, Carla, and Jacob. After finding out that you’re immune to the zombie virus the hard way, humanity’s future is in your hands. Aided by newfound friends, including the original Dead Island’s Sam B., players must escape from HELL-A before the rest of the world succumbs to the undead plague.
Standing in your way are the undead hordes of Angelinos, as varied as they once were in life. Slaughter reanimated muscle-beach hunks, fashionable celebrities, and beach bums alike in gruesome style with a variety of weapons. Whether you’re slashing them up with knives, chopping them with an electrified axe, or turning them into swiss cheese with an assault rifle, Dead Island 2’s blood-drenched action is a gory spectacle to behold.
With different environmental effects to experiment with and your own strange abilities as an infected yet seemingly immune zombie virus survivor, there are ample ways to take out the undead. As long as there’s a trail of gore behind you, there isn’t a wrong way to mow down the hordes.
