In another surprise announcement, Deep Silver has revealed Dead Island 2, the sequel to the surprise-hit original, Dead Island. I really loved the first few hours of the original Dead Island. The gorgeous resort setting sharply contrasted with the horrific events occurring on the island. Beyond the resort, I didn’t care much for the game, and wound up never finishing it. The difficulty spikes suddenly as soon as you leave the resort, causing the game to become frustrating and to highlight it’s flaws in the combat and traversal. If those issues are fixed, I’m willing to give Dead Island 2 a shot. Check out the box art and trailer below.
