Ahead of its Gamescom reveal we had the chance to go hands-on with Dead Island 2, the long-in-development sequel that is as surprisingly polished as it is ground-breaking. And it's out February 3, 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
Here's the impressive gameplay trailer.
And a snippet from our preview.
The demo started us off with quite the arsenal. Equipping a large two-handed mallet, charging up a heavy attack, targetting a zombie’s head, and then watching as it made contact, crushed its neck, and then slammed the undead attacker into the ground in one single motion was one of those take-a-step-back moments. Gruesome, disturbing, but satisfying in a way that very few games manage to pull off. The best part was it wasn’t a scripted animation because trying to do the exact same thing to the next zombie ended up with a shoulder getting mangled because the impact angle was off. Equally gruesome, and over-the-top.
