Finally, we have had official confirmation that Dead Island 2 is alive and well. Furthermore, we’ve also been treated to a new gameplay trailer.

Eight long years after it was first announced, and when I got to play an alpha build in 2014, we can rest peacefully knowing that Dead Island 2 is coming back.

During Gamescom Opening Night Live, we were not only treated to a gameplay trailer but also a fun CGI trailer too. The gameplay trailer especially is full of fun and bloody goodness. What else could we want?

The Dead Island 2 press release reads:

Dead Island 2 is a First-Person Action RPG set in a unique setting – a hellish, yet stylish and vibrant, gore-drenched vision of Los Angeles, nicknamed HELL-A. The series’ unique formula, dark humour and over-the-top zombie-slaying returns, with all the swagger and charisma you’d expect from Dead Island.

The CGI trailer stars Jacob, one of our playable slayers, as he wakes up in a luxurious Beverly Hills villa but nothing is what it seems. Join him as he ventures out into HELL-A and witness the bloody outbreak aftermath, enhanced by the iconic track Hollywood Swinging by Kool And The Gang.

Are you happy that Dead Island 2 is still a thing? Let us know across our social media channels. Dead Island 2 will release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on February 3rd, 2023.
