California Dreamin': Deep Silver Reveals Dead Island® 2 at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo

- Surf's Up! The outbreak has spread to the Golden State -


Larkspur, Calif. – June 9, 2014 - The zombie apocalypse has hit the iconic, sunny realms of California as Deep Silver announced Dead Island® 2 today. Building on the strengths of the multi-million best-selling hit Dead Island, Dead Island 2 delivers a shared survival, open-world zombie experience set in a clash of natural beauty and bloody horror and violence: paradise meets hell once again!

Developed by award-winning studio Yager, Dead Island 2 is scheduled for release in spring 2015 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC.

Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State 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. Combining the classic Dead Island elements of immersive close combat, action and role-playing, Dead Island 2 features crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters in taking players from the iconic Golden Gate to the celebrated beachfront boardwalk of southern California’s Venice Beach.

Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Dead Island 2 brings back its acclaimed, seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a truly social, new-gen multiplayer experience. Dedicated classes offer a variety of gameplay: From the action-oriented berserker to the stealthy hunter, every character offers a different style of play. An in-depth skill system allows the player to handcraft their own heroes and weapons.

Just checked. Bicep implants are real and people actually use them. What is wrong with people?

Men can actually get pec and ab implants too. Women tend to go for tits and ass implants. There's even calf ones too. Fucking mental bastards. Tits are fine, though.

I wish they add a linear single player campaign so I can buy it, I don't like open world games.

Just try to walk in a straight line and pretend you don't have options or choices....Seriously though, I wouldn't let that stop you from trying it. These games are actually linear as far as story, it's just the open environment and choice of occasional side missions. They are really fun games that don't take things too seriously.

Assuming you have friends of course. If you don't i'd avoid this at all costs. (If its anything like the first one)

You can get biceps like that if you work hard enough.
