Deep Silver’s upcoming action role-playing survival horror game, Dead Island 2 was unveiled during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference.
“Dead Island is heading to California for a Summer that never dies! Grab your friends and become the zombie’s apocalypse in the co-op vacation of a lifetime.”
“This new zombie California invites you to become the ultimate hero of the apocalypse to explore a dynamic, bright, and beautiful open world where you and your friends fight endless zombie hordes with your handcrafted weapons, said Jan-Eric Lauble, creative producer at Deep Silver.
The combat system of the game has been redone from scratch to provide a more visceral experience and control than ever before, and you will need this control to overcome all the dynamic challenges and new enemy types the game will throw at you.
But the element we are most proud of is the seamless, social multiplayer. Here is where everything comes together to create a shared survival, dynamic open world — experience!
Eight players are constantly sharing a world and it is up to you if you want to cooperate, compete or simply coexist. This creates the ultimate zombie playground where you can live this second chance in life.”
“After the first outbreak on Banoi in Dead Island, the world has moved on. Zombies are known and everyone feels safe and prepared.
Companies are selling vaccines and the latest zombie survival kits and people believe that the disaster that occurred on a small island in the middle of nowhere could never happen to them. But they were so WRONG!
Suddenly, a string of brutal outbreaks occur in California and the government puts a wall around the infected area – leaving California as a ‘Dead Island.’
Dead? Not entirely, because let’s face it, a zombie apocalypse has its upsides as well: No boring job, no traffic jams, and no bills to pay.”
Sony’s PlayStation 4 will receive DI2 exclusive beta and exclusive content, more details will be announced in coming months.
Dead Island 2, powered by Unreal Engine 4 is in development at Yager for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
