Dead Island 2 shows off gameplay in gory new showcase

Eight years since its initial unveiling and multiple delays later, Dead Island 2 is finally almost upon us – and ahead of its launch next April, publisher Deep Silver has shared more of its open-world, zombie-pulverising antics in a new digital showcase.

Those with itchy fast-forward fingers will be pleased to know the vast majority of Dead Island 2’s 15-minute showcase is taken up by largely uninformative live-action sequences, featuring a group of zombie apocalypse survivors as they stumble across a copy of Dead Island 2 in a fancy LA mansion. It’s entirely inessential fluff, but, tucked between all that, Deep Silver does manage to squeeze in a few minutes of gameplay.
