Deep Silver studio is working on a sequel to the popular Dead Island game. This time instead of using Techland as developer, Deep Silver went with YAGER Development. Dead Island 2 will take place in California this time around Los Angeles, as Hollywood sign is visible in the background. YAGER has a different approach to Dead Island than Techland did and some of it will be visible in the following alpha footage trailer that was released just moments before Gamescom in Germany. Planned release is 2015, for PS4, Xbox and PC.
Today, Deep Silver reveals the first gameplay trailer for Dead Island 2, the next installment in the multi-million-selling Dead Island franchise. The video shows Pre-Alpha in-game footage and gives a first impression on how beautiful sunshine and bloody melee violence meet once again – this time in the sunny realms of California. Dead Island 2 is coming Spring 2015 from development studio YAGER for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as Windows PC.
Dead Island 2 will be playable for the first time at Gamescom 2014 in Cologne. At the Deep Silver booth in Hall 9.1, B11/C10, players can enjoy a decent zombie slaughterfest just below the famous Hollywood sign.
