So, Dead Island 2 has been delayed again. But despite the setbacks, Dambuster and publisher Deep Silver are making amends with fans by announcing the “Dead Island 2 Showcase – Another Day In HELL-A”, which will air on Tuesday, December 6 at 12:00 PM PST.
According to the press release, the Dead Island 2 showcase will “introduce brand new gameplay content and features through a captivating live action film.” Fans will also see the premiere of a new trailer “containing an extended and exclusive look at the latest and greatest gameplay from the hotly anticipated title.”
Speaking of that “live action film”, Deep Silver has given us a 15 second clip of said film in a new teaser for the showcase, which you can see below. You’ll be able to watch the showcase via the Deep Silver Twitch channel, with a recast being available on Prime Video in the UK and North America starting at midnight local.
The story for Dead Island 2 takes place several months after the events of the first game, with the United States military putting the California under full quarantine. Now a restricted zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for renegades who seek adventure, glory and a fresh start.
Dead Island 2 will release on April 28, 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
