News | Extensive Dead Island 2 gameplay shown

Last night, a Dead Island 2 showcase aired, including extensive gameplay of the game.

For example, new weapons are shown, including burning katanas. Players can also upgrade these weapons. You can also see that players can become a zombie themselves. The game takes place in locations such as Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, and Santa Monica.

It was also announced that players will be able to control the game with the help of Alexa Game Control. Allows players to use their voice to perform in-game actions. This feature is currently only available in English in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom – it is unknown if it will be available in other countries.

Dead Island 2 was already announced in 2014, but was revealed again last August. There are six playable characters to choose from, with each character having its own personality and unique dialogues. Each ‘Slayer’ can also be fully customized via a new skill system. The game can be played in co-op for three players.

Dead Island 2 will be released on April 28, 2023 on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One.
