Dead Island 2  



Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2


1:30 PM on 08.11.2014



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?

We should have some hands-on from gamescom, where Dead Island 2 is playable, later this week with, hopefully, a good sense of how different this is from the original.

Dead Island 2 PAX impressions

Having only seen Dead Island 2 and not played it yet, I'm in agreement with Max here. It does look like a decent-enough zombie game, and a much better take on the property than Riptide .. but it's still Dead Island. There comes a point at which you've simply had enough. The southern California setting and warm tones are lovely, though. Big fan of those.more

California is not an island, but here are my Dead Island 2 impressions

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. more

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

Dead Island 2 wants to be cool and kickass

The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th...more

Huh. I missed that Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager is handling development on Dead Island 2. That knowledge combined with the excellent CG trailer has me mildly interested. Here's Max sharing his thoughts after seeing an ear...more
