Deep Silver released 14 minutes of new Dead Island 2 gameplay.
In the video seen below, the action at the beginning of the game takes place in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. It features Dani, one of six fully customizable characters that players can choose from. Dani is suited to an agile fighting style and is tasked with getting to the Halperin Hotel.
In the environment, Dani will encounter standard zombies (walkers, shamblers, runners), variants (grenadier walkers), and apex (hyper-mutated zombies), each with unique powers and behaviors.
To take them out, you can draw on a variety of weapons, each with a unique combat style and numerous upgrade opportunities.

Hailing from the mosh pits of County Cork, Ireland, Dani’s unique Slayer characteristics – tenacious yet balanced – lend themselves well to an agile fighting style. The video also shows how to use distractions like meat traps or combine a powerful set of Perk Cards to support them.
Definitely promise a fun time dismembering the zombies thanks to Dambuster’s FLESH (Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids) dismembering technology.
Finally, you can witness an infected yet immune Slayer activate her corrupted DNA and trigger “Rage Mode”.
Dead Island 2 will be released on April 21, 2023 for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
