“Dead Island 2” follows the story of a player who can choose from 6 characters with unique personalities and in-game dialogues. Players can customize their character with a brand new skill system to make them the best zombie ‘Slayer.’ The game also features the ‘craziest builds,’ as the game description reads.
Los Angeles is on the verge of being completely overrun by a horde of ravenous zombies in the video game. The snapshots and box art from the Amazon listing show a city landscape burning at dusk and a beach filled with skater zombies.
Players will act as one of the few survivors of the zombie apocalypse. The player and a handful of fellow Slayers have developed a strange resistance to the zombie virus in the outbreak.
This will be another zombie survival game. The players will be tasked to survive endless waves of zombie attacks and uncover the truth behind the ravaging zombie outbreak.
According to the recently deleted listing description, Dead Island will be a unique mix of horror, dark humor, and over-the-top, first-person zombie slaying. In the game, PS4 and PS5 players will be exposed to a brand new setting along with a really interesting storyline. Expect lots of gory zombie-slaying action as your chosen characters cruise a zombie-infested California.
