New Dead Island 2 gameplay footage shows off dismemberment & detailed damage system

GameInformer has shared a new gameplay video for Dead Island 2 that showcases the game’s zombie dismemberment and highly detailed damage system.

To be honest, this damage system brought me memories of Soldier of Fortune 2. And since I liked everything I saw in this video, I’m all in. Unfortunately, though, the player movement still feels a bit slow. I guess Dambuster didn’t learn anything from Dying Light. So no, I don’t expect this game to have any parkour elements.

But anyway, 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.
