Dead Island 2 is right around the corner, launching on 21st April on PS5 and PS4. We've been waiting a long time for this one, and its starting to feel a little more real now we have a cinematic trailer to accompany it.

While it doesn't hit the unbelievable highs of the original Dead Island's iconic and now legendary reveal trailer, this new one is nonetheless of extremely high quality. Created by creative studio ELASTIC (they did the intro sequence for HBO’s The Last of Us), it sets the stage for the mayhem to come with some serene (if blood-spattered) scenes of downtown LA and its surroundings.

We got to play Dead Island 2 and loved our time with it, and it sounds like the full release will be a suitably meaty offering. Where are your hype levels at for this game out of time? Let us know in the comments section below.
