When most people are dead, what would you do to survive in the world that is hungry for your blood, your flesh? It would scare the hell out of anyone if they were in the same situation that our protagonist of this game is in. But he is not just any other man, he is tough dude with some mashing and bashing skills. He is no afraid to take shortcuts even if it means walking right past the hungry zombies looking to eat him alive. With his unique over the top agile moves, he makes sure that the zombies can't catch up to him. Even is the do, he always has a plan B, and that is to smash and splatter the zombie brains all over the floor. Isn't it simpler than keep running away from these dog-like creatures? While it's easy for him to smash some skulls, a bite is all it's going to take to kill him. He is always flirting with danger and he knows that for a fact.
If you are wondering what I am blabbering about, it's about Dead Island 2, a game developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver. So is the Dead Island 2 going to be anything like Dead Island? Let's find out.
Not developed by Techland
This game is not developed by the same team who developed the mediocre, but still fun to play game, Dead Island. It was kind of cumbersome at some places with slow, heavy combat which made for a really fun game. But the fact of the matter is this, Techland is not involved with this game at all as they are focusing on Dying Light for the time being. This game is developed by the team who also developed one of the best Single Player games of this generation, Spec Ops: The Line.
It's not set on the island
While the first game was set in the island, this game is going to California. Yes, despite as the name would suggest, this game is ditching the small island setting and going somewhere else this time around. California can be a really fascinating place as it's huge and not marooned like an island where the places you could explore was minimum to say the least. The island setting kind of annoyed me for the same reason, but they are finally going for the kill by choosing to go for the California.
It's going to be open-world
It's not going to be a constricted, strictly narrative experience anymore for you. If you always felt enraged in close quarter combats where you had little to no creativity, you are going to be very happy to hear that Dead Island 2 is going open-world. You will always have the option to do whatever you want to do. There will be multiple way to approach a situation.
More variety of enemies and weapons
While Dead Island 2 was full with modification options and varieties of weapons to try on zombies, Dead Island is going to go a step further than that by retaining all the vibe of the original Dead Island, but also introducing some of the best and still unseen new weapons to the game.
We are amazing people with very kind and considerate hearts, but sometimes we just love to bash up things for fun and Dead Island is one of those examples of how evil and manipulative a human being can be sometimes.
