Dead Island 2 First Pre-Alpha Gameplay Footage Released

Deep Silver has unveiled the first ever gameplay trailer for Dead Island 2, the next installment in the Dead Island series of games, which includes two first-person games and a spinoff MOBA title. 

The video shows Pre-Alpha in-game footage and gives a first impression on how beautiful sunshine and bloody melee violence meet once again – this time in the sunny sands of California. 

Dead Island 2 is scheduled for release in Spring 2015 from development studio Yager, best known for their work on Spec Ops: The Line, and will be available on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as Windows PC. 

The game picks up after the Dead Island and Escape Dead Island (another new game currently in development) storylines, several months after the events on the Banoi islands. 

Dead Island 2 is designed for seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete, or simply coexist in a new-gen multiplayer experience. 

Dead Island 2 will be playable for the first time at Gamescom 2014 in Cologne. At the Deep Silver booth in Hall 9.1, B11/C10, where players can experience the game.
