Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver have just shared an extended gameplay trailer for Dead Island 2. Today’s extended gameplay video kicks off the action at the very beginning of Dead Island 2 in Bel Air, Los Angeles.
As the press release reads:
“Armed with an array of weapons, each with their own unique, brutal fighting style and endless opportunities for upgrades, watch as slayer Dani meets Standard zombies (Walkers, Shamblers, Runners), Variant zombies (grenadier walkers), and Apex zombies (hyper mutated zombies), each one with its own horrifying powers and behaviors.”
Starring in the video is the slayer Dani, who hails from the mosh pits of County Cork, Ireland. Dani’s unique slayer build is well-suited to an agile style of combat. Her mission in this trailer is simple; try and reach the Halperin Hotel.
Players will also see how tapping into Curveballs and combining a powerful set of Skill Cards – which enhance abilities and create unique player builds – assist Dani as she hacks and slashes her way through the beginning areas of HELL-A.
For those wondering, Dead Island 2 will feature four slayers. These are Amy, Jacob, Dani and Ryan.
Dead Island 2 will take players across the most iconic locations of the City of Angels. Players will explore iconic, gore-drenched Los Angeles, and meet larger-than-life characters. Additionally, they will slay countless foes in exquisitely bloody detail, and evolve to become the ultimate Zombie Slayer.
Deep Silver will release Dead Island 2 on April 28th, 2023.
