Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 is playable at Gamescom, and six minutes of direct-feed footage have come out of the show.

The upcoming sequel takes players to Los Angeles, where the zombie apocalpyse is in full effect. It’s due out next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Watch the footage below, via IGN.

    I did not like the first Dead Island at all.
    that said, this looks like a big improvement; different developer and all.
    Dying Light looks very similar though, now with Parkour and vertical gameplay.
    this seems to have a bigger world though.
    Anyways, we sure have a lot of horror themed games coming up this gen:

    Evil Within
    Resident Evil HD Remastered
    Fatal Frame V
    Until Dawn
    Silent Hills
    Alien: Isolation
    Dying Light
    Dead Island 2
    Day Light
    Zombii U
    Dead Rising 3
    Shadow of the Eternals

      Shadow of the Eternals? Wasn’t it canned?

      • Budgiecat

        not to my knowledge. Delayed probably

      i wouldn’t call Dead island and Dead Rising 3 “Horror” game though.

        Horror themed for sure. And you’re trying to survive so…

    Can you break into someone’s house and put their pantsu on your head? I. Need. This.
