The teams at Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver are nearing the release of the long-awaited sequel to Dead Island on April 21st. This morning they premiered 15 minutes of new gameplay footage of Dead Island 2. The footage is from the perspective of Dani and shows off a ton of combat and abilities.
With just under two months to go until Dead Island 2 releases worldwide, Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver today unveiled an extended look at what everyone has been waiting for: gameplay. Today’s extended gameplay video kicks off the action at the very beginning of Dead Island 2 in Bel Air, Los Angeles.
Armed with an array of weapons, each with their own unique, brutal fighting style and endless opportunities for upgrades, watch as slayer Dani meets Standard zombies (Walkers, Shamblers, Runners), Variant zombies (grenadier walkers), and Apex zombies (hyper mutated zombies), each one with its own horrifying powers and behaviors.
Starring in the video is the slayer Dani, who hails from the mosh pits of County Cork, Ireland. Dani’s unique slayer build – tenacious yet balanced – is well-suited to an agile style of combat. Her mission in this trailer? To try and reach the Halperin Hotel.
Players will also see how tapping into Curveballs and combining a powerful set of Skill Cards – which enhance abilities and create unique player builds – assist Dani as she hacks and slashes her way through the beginning areas of HELL-A.
