Believe it or not, Dead Island 2 is very nearly here. The game, thought to be lost to time, releases on 21st April 2023, and it's looking surprisingly promising. Its tongue-in-cheek (but no less grisly) take on a zombie apocalypse is on full display in this new video from IGN, documenting the opening few minutes of the open world adventure.
It looks like our protagonist wakes up badly injured following a catastrophic plane crash. After patching themselves up with a med kit, they head outside, where a flare indicates some fellow survivors. After making it to the group, they leave you behind as a horde of zombies approaches, and it's down to you to fend them off. Of course, it all gets pretty violent pretty fast.
We also get a brief glimpse of the protagonist's partial immunity to becoming a zombie; after being bitten, we see them zoning in and out of consciousness as they head towards an address written on their arm.
Only a couple of weeks to go before we all take a trip to Hell-A. Are you excited for Dead Island 2? Stomp some heads in the comments section below.
Oh man washing machine broke last week so had to get a new one. Was always 50/50 on getting this on release day but now washing machine has made that decision for me. At least I've already preordered Burning Shores for now and backlog always exists. Oh well good luck to those getting it day one, hope it reviews really well and ends up a fun zombie smashing must play
Looks great and seems fun, at least for some time (might get bored after killing a few thousands of zombies though). But I have too many games to play to find some time for this. Maybe one day...
Looks way better then I thought.
Visuals look great but man does the actual Gameplay look terrible and dated.
Looks fun but I really wish they'd stop making characters comment on what you need to do next or at least have the option to switch it off. I don't need to be told I need to get out of a burning plane, cheers.
Underwhelming to say the least. Very unimpressed by mechanics and physics. 50% OFF or more and I’ll consider it.
Probably wait till this is cheap on sale in 6 months or so not convinced it'll be worth full price and also expecting it to be buggy at launch after the development issues it's had.
Two lol moments before any combat, and head stomp kills without need to level up. I want this game to be good enough that I can't wait for a price drop.
This looks actually fun which is surprising since games with this long development cycle like this usually doesn't turn out okay.
Also I like he's more grounded characters and not saying tired marvel one liner like in redfall.
This looks fun. Hope we get a sequel to the zombie from the first game who said “Yeah” and then blew up.
@NoCode23 I’ve given in to less on the basis I reckon they’re my thing anyways. Priorities skewed but that leaves a lot of great games I’ve yet to play ..
I'm looking forward to this a lot. A bit of dumb fun zombie killing is exactly what I'm looking for right now. The characters haven't really resonated with me so far, but I felt the same way with Sam B and by the end of the game I loved him.
I won't be watching, want my first playthrough to be fresh!
