As recently leaked, the game will take place in Los Angeles and feature six playable characters.
“Los Angeles is in quarantine and the military have retreated,” reads an official product description. “Only you, and the handful of others who happen to be resistant to the pathogen, holds the future of the city (and humanity), in the balance.
“Dead Island 2 is stylish, vibrant and flooded with zombie infection. Explore iconic, gore-drenched Los Angeles. Meet larger-than-life characters. Slay countless foes in exquisitely bloody detail. And evolve to become the ultimate Zombie Slayer!”
Players who pre-purchase the game will receive access to the Memories of Banoi DLC pack, featuring two unique weapons, a special weapon perk and skill card.
Dead Island 2 was first announced in 2014 and has since suffered a series of delays and changes of developer.
It was originally in the works at Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager before development duties were taken over by Sumo Digital. Dambuster, an internal Deep Silver studio, then took over development in 2019.
