Dead Island 2 introduces new gameplay that reveals an arsenal of weapons and a unique and brutal fighting style.
Just under two months to go Dead Island 2 releases worldwide, Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver have today unveiled a look at what everyone has been waiting for: the gameplay. Today’s gameplay video kicks off the action at the beginning of Dead Island 2 in Bel Air, Los Angeles.
Armed with an arsenal of weapons, each with its own unique and brutal fighting style and endless possibilities for upgrades, watch Vampire Slayer Dani take on standard Zombies (Walkers, Shamans, Runners), Variant Zombies (Walker Grenadiers) and Apex zombies (hypermutated zombies), each with their own horrifying powers and behaviors.
The protagonist of the video is the vampire slayer Dani, who comes from the mosh pits of County Cork, Ireland. Dani is a unique, tenacious yet balanced Vampire Slayer who is well suited to an agile combat style. His mission of hers in this trailer? Try to get to the Halperin Hotel.
Players will also see how taking advantage of curveballs and combining a powerful set of ability cards, which enhance abilities and create unique playstyles, help Dani blast her way through the early zones of HELL-A. .
Dambuster Studios’ dismemberment technology, known as FLESH (Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids), means that crushing bones, slicing through zombies and melting flesh has never been more satisfying.
As an infected but somehow immune Slayer, players will finally witness what happens when their chosen Slayer activates their corrupted DNA and activates Fury Mode.
