Dead Island 2's First Gameplay Trailer
Revealed during E3 2014 with a spectacular CGI Announcement Trailer, open world, action-RPG Dead Island 2 is set to be the centerpiece of publisher Deep Silver's Gamescom booth when the show kicks off in two days. Developed by YAGER, the Berlin-based studio best known for Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2 takes place in sunny California, under full quarantine by the US military. "California's newfound bloody paradise is an action-packed playground featuring the acclaimed, seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a truly social, new-gen multiplayer experience." The debut gameplay trailer below, entitled "Sunshine & Slaughter", is simply pre-Alpha footage, yet already looks quite good. Meanwhile, the five new screenshots show insanely detailed zombies.
Dead Island 2 is set to arrive Spring 2015 for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Pre-ordering grants you the "Golden State" Weapon Pack, featuring three exclusive weapons: Grinder, Katana, and Homestrike. The game will be playable at Gamescom (Hall 9.1, B011/C010), August 13-17, with the demo taking place in Los Angeles, just below the iconic Hollywood sign.
