E3 2014: Deep Silver Reveals Dead Island 2

Dead Island shocked gamers everywhere a few years back with an emotional debut trailer and now its follow-up, Dead Island 2, is nothing but a good time. Suffice it to say, this is one hilarious trailer. There’s a guy in it who goes out for a jog, knowingly covers up a bite mark and just keeps going. That is until pandemonium starts happening behind him and he has to choose between giving up his workout or turning into a horrible zombie. It’s a tougher decision than you’d think.

PS4 owners will be able to check out an exclusive 30 day beta. Yager, the minds behind Spec Ops: The Line, will be heading up the game.

Check out full details from Deep Silver and the trailer below:

“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‚Äôs 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.”
