Dead Island 2
  • Developer: Dambuster Studios
  • Publisher: Deep Silver
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBD

It’s been a long time coming for Dead Island 2, a video game sequel to the 2011 release, Dead Island. The original video game put players into a civilian trapped on a resort island with no means of escape all while a zombie pandemic breaks out. There is a big focus on melee combat in Dead Island which was a nice change-up at the time for a zombie apocalypse video game. Now that the game ended on a cliffhanger, players were eager to jump back into the in-game world and see what all has happened since the credits had rolled. While we had received a Dead Island 2 announcement, it’s been several years since we have seen anything come of the game.

Since its announcement the project has exchanged hands between a few development studios with most recently publisher Deep Silver, being acquired by THQ Nordic. It would have been thought that the project was scrapped but THQ Nordic has since confirmed that the game was still in development. Just when this title will come out and if it will resemble anything like the initial plans for Dead Island 2 remains to be seen.

GTFO is an upcoming party-style video game where a group of four players embarks on a dark journey filled with hostile enemies to slaughter. Overall, the game follows a team that is seeking for valuable artifacts from great depths below. It’s only after the search did humanity discovered that something evil awaits for an opportunity to escape to the surface. As a result, players are in a constant struggle when it comes to searching for goods and solving puzzles. Currently, the game is expected to launch within this year for the PC platform. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the game has any confirmation for a future console platform release.

The Black Mass
  • Developer: Brilliant Game Studios
  • Publisher: Brilliant Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2019

If you’re looking for a new co-op experience full of undead to battle against then you definitely need to keep tabs on The Black Mass. This upcoming title is all about building up structures and fighting off the undead, but its the number of enemies that will really keep things fresh and interesting. Apparently, the development team is working on a new crowd rendering technology that is allowing hundreds of thousands into the world making traversing intense no matter the reason. So far the game only has an expected release window of this summer so we’ll have to keep an eye out for new information to release online.

World War Z
  • Developer: Saber Interactive
  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: April 16, 2019

If you want a bit more chaotic action to your zombie game then we have to suggest looking at World War Z. This title focuses on more horde based zombies where players can work together and fend off a massive horde of undead. They are a bit fast in movement similar to what we’ve seen in the film based that bears the same name. Zombies even pile up to reach higher grounds which we imagine no area is really safe from being reached and attacked. Apparently throughout the game players can strategically place traps to thin out the herd of zombies and you’ll be taken to different locations around the world.
