has unveiled a gameplay movie and five screenshots
for Dead Island 2
, a survival, open-world zombie experience developed by Yager
and due to be available in spring 2015, for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine. Now a restricted zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for renegades who seek adventure, glory and a fresh start.
Combining the classic Dead Island elements of immersive close combat, action and role-playing, Dead Island 2 features crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters in taking players from the iconic Golden Gate to the celebrated beachfront boardwalk of southern California's Venice Beach.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Dead Island 2 will offer multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a social, new-gen multiplayer experience.
