The story of Dead Island 2 starts on an evacuation plane, where you and a group of other survivors are being taken away from the dangerous streets of Los Angeles. But if your plane crashes, you must figure out how to escape the wreckage independently. Then, during a fight with a zombie, your character gets bitten.
When you don’t become a monster, you realize you must be immune to the virus that makes other people become nightmares. Now, you have to find a way to find other survivors and cut a path through the deserted city so you can call the government and get everyone rescued.
Dead Island 2 Gameplay
Dead Island 2 significantly changes everything we know and love about the first game. First, the map has been broken into what game director David Stenton calls “districts.” The combat still focuses on close-quarters hacking and slashing, but the experience has significantly changed since 2011.
We’ve had the chance to play the game’s test build twice, starting with our first hands-on with Dead Island 2. From this, we could already tell how carefully Dambuster had worked on the FLESH system. The gruesome, anatomically accurate graphics try to bring back the humor and disgust of 80s horror, giving a very scary game some much-needed humor.
You will collect skill cards to add to your deck, letting you build a set of abilities you can change whenever you want. Thanks to the “symphony of the combat sandbox,” Stenton talked about in our most recent Dead Island 2 preview and interview with Dambuster, you can improve your play style. For example, a perfect dodge can stun enemies, and a war cry can heal you.

Dead Island 2 Setting
In Dead Island 2, the setting is a very bloody Los Angeles. Dambuster will let us see some of the city’s most famous places, from Beverly Hills’ suburbs to the sun-drenched boardwalk of Venice Beach and beyond. Hell-A is full of zombies and weapons, so it makes sense that the whole city is a natural battleground for this co-op action game.
A tweet from Dead Island’s official account remarked, “Have you seen the Dead Island 2 extended gameplay trailer yet?”–

You’ll play as one of six main characters called “Slayers” in the game, and just like in the first Dead Island, you won’t be able to switch Slayers once you pick one:
Dead Island 2 Combat
It’s official: Dead Island 2 wants to be the “best in class” at fighting, and it’s well on its way there. With their FLESH system, Deep Silver says that the combat in Dead Island 2 is “the most intense, visceral, and gory first-person experience possible.”
Also, each of the six playable characters in Dead Island 2 has a unique personality, dialogue, and starting skill cards that are specific to them. Even better, each character’s skills can be fully customized, and the game’s unique skill deck system is made so that you can re-spec characters on the spot to try out new builds.
