Dead Island 2 is an action RPG and part of the Dead Island franchise. A departure from the previous games, this entry is set in a fictionalized, quarantined California. The game also puts a lighter spin on the zombie game, but retains the violent mayhem of previous games in the series.Once again, you'll be able to grab a few friends to take on the zombies, infected humans, and other threats to everyone's safety. This time around, multiplayer co-op play is expanded to eight players in a move that the devs compare to a very small scale MMO. FEATURES
Dead Island 2 isn't...dead after all. Deep Silver has revealed that Sumo Digital will resume development of the game that ceased production last July when it and Yager Productions fell out.
Deep Silver has announced its intention to part ways with Dead Island 2 developer Yager. According to a statement from Deep Silver, the publisher will "continue working towards bringing out vision of Dead Island 2 to life and will share further information at a later stage."
Escape from Dead Island will be launching in about two weeks. As part of the launch sequence, the first digital comic based on the forthcoming third person, story driven game has been released.
The success of the original Dead Island has led to a number of spinoff games, even including a MOBA, and there are no signs this trend will slow down. At this year's PAX Prime, we had a chance to check out one such spin off, Escape Dead Island, as well as the current gen sequel to the original game, Dead Island 2.
