A new zombie game has been unveiled based on requests from Play Station gamers. This may not be your conventional zombie game though. The trailer shows a clearly bitten man running as he slowly becomes a zombie and is joined by his undead brothers and sisters. The screen rolls to black and Dead Island slate showing off that the game is ready for a full sequel.

A 30 day exclusive beta for Dead Island 2 will be available exclusive on PlayStation 4. This isn't the only addition that PlayStation gamers will get as they will also have access to an exclusive character class.


A release from Deep Silver reads as follows "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."

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
