Deep Silver debuts Dead Island 2 gameplay trailer

We're the bomb and we're about to blow up.


Deep Silver is going into GamesCom this week with guns a-blazing…and blow torches a-blowin' and zombies shattering, and so forth.

The publishing team has debuted a new gameplay trailer for its bloody sequel Dead Island 2, which can be found below. In it, you'll find all sorts of creative ways to take down zombies, whether it's snapping necks, turning them into a gigantic ice cube and smashing them, or, best of all, dropping a bomb on a group and watching them explode.

The game will be playable at the show for the first time, allowing players to get their hands on the bloody mess that awaits. (And we mean that in a good way.)

Dead Island 2 will make its debut sometime next year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as PC.

        I found the first one rather fun after it had been out awhile and they patched up a lot.

          To each there own. I just found some parts frustrating (melee weapons being made out of paper mache) and using cash to purchase upgrades in the apocalypse.

            No upgrade system really works all that well in this kind of setting.

              Yeah, but cash? WAIT! Let me deposit this ten dollar bill in my left pocket into my right pocket!

              It just felt rushed.

                its just one of those things that kinda makes me laugh about games.

                I just finished up The Last of Us last night. The whole "lets use this random collection of nuts and bolts to do _____" is even more annoying than just using money. At least money still has some value in the DI world even if it seems out of place on the island itself. In TLOU I'm somehow turning nuts and bolts, with the ocassional cog, into a fucking scope for a rifle??? Thankfully I can just shrug and laugh it off becase video games.

      You forgot PC. The most important platform to list.

      First one was surprisingly fun co-op, 2nd DI was insufferable and tedious. I hope they can strike gold again.
