Deep Silver delays Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 was supposed to release this spring, but that's no longer in the cards, as Deep Silver has announced the open-world zombie game has been delayed until 2016. The publisher and development team at Spec Ops: The Line studio ...

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18

Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants you to meet at ...

 
Dead Island 2
You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like.    read

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white phosphorus, eh? W...

There's going to be a Dead Island movie (for real this time)

A few years ago, Lionsgate picked up the film rights to Dead Island but now Deep Silver is moving forward with Occupant Entertainment to "package, produce, and finance" an adaptation. It's unclear which direction the movie will go in, thoug...

You could theoretically make Deep Silver package a real zombie with Dead Island 2 Collector's Edition

Remember the last time we talked about a Dead Island collector's edition and it was a disembodied female torso? I don't think Deep Silver wants to go that route this time, so they're turning to the community to find out what people want fro...

 
Dead Island preview
The next Dead Island game isn't Dead Island 2. Of course, Dead Island: Riptide already showed the series' disregard for numeration. Counting the early access MOBA, Dead Island 2 should be Dead Island 5. But Dea...   read

Dead Island Epidemic is a 'ZOMBA,' not a MOBA, get it right

Dead Island Epidemic's four-minute gameplay video tries really hard to be hardcore, but I cringed at the way the announcer said the title. It wasn't good. With that said, it looks like it could be fun. Obviously this is a MOBA, but the buz...
