Dead Island 2: crazy and very gory new gameplay with a live-action film

The Dead Island 2 “Another Day in HELL-A” showcase is over. Live-action film, gameplay extracts or new information, here is a summary of the announcements.

When announcing its postponement, Dead Island 2 promised us a presentation with gameplay “throbbing” and other festivities. What is there to remember from this showcase?

Dead Island 2 returns with a very promising gameplay trailer

Originally scheduled for February 2023, Dead Island 2 will finally be available on April 28, 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. A postponed release which is never pleasant but which, according to what we could see during our preview, is not a bad omen. We had fun knocking out zombies, thanks to an always fun melee system and a good atmosphere.

Since pictures speak louder than words, you should feel all of our impressions in the exciting new gameplay trailer. We see the iconic places of Los Angeles with Beverly Hills, a movie studio, the Santa Monica pier, but also the arsenal that the six characters will have to “slice, hit, trample and burn the zombies”. From katanas to machetes, swords and hammers, to the card deck system for skills, to a “tetrachya” arms as the voice-over says so poetically, there will be plenty of fun. And especially to shed blood.

The trailer is even more gory than the previous presentations, with a passage where the heroine sticks her arm into the head of a zombie, well what’s left of it, with a hanging jaw. A brutality that we surely owe to FLESH: Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids.

A live-action short film that is worth seeing

If you missed the Dead Island “Another Day in HELL-A” showcase, we advise you to check out the replay. Deep Silver shot a real live-action short that breaks the fourth wall with a demonstration of Alexa Game Control. Amazon’s voice assistant will allow you to change weapons by saying the name (eg ax), interact with NPCs, use abilities or even provoke Zs.
