Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine.

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.

  1. Uh… Not the follow up I was expecting after a game like Spec Ops: The Line… Way to waste their talent. Daaaamn… :|

    P.S.: “[…] crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters […]”. Sunset Overdrive much? :0

    1. I’d hold your horses. They might do something special here.

      1. :(

        Also, is it confirmed to have a singleplayer component?

        1. Yup! Might be connected world type thing. We’ll know more soon.

          1. DI2 game director Bernd Diemer is talking about the game right now on Twitch.

    2. yeah welll thats how the industry is today, no one innovates or take chances with new ips they just make sequels, it sucks really.

  2. I can’t wait for them to yell at us for shooting innocent zombies.

  3. Well that was unexpected…

  4. I thought Dying Light was essentially the sequel to this, very nice surprise! I really enjoyed the first two Dead Island games, People complained about them being full of bugs but I didn’t really encounter much that I couldn’t forgive them for considering they had given me a tropical paradise full of zombies to investigate.

    I prefer to play it on my own though; co-op games just force you to move as fast as possible so you can grab your share of the stuff. I wanted to take my time and savour the experience :)
