Dead Island 2 Seems to be a Fun way of Killing Zombies
As the original Dead Island may have some pros and cons, Dead Island 2 seems to have quite impressive plans of improvement. To begin with, Dead Island 2 will have a new development team Yager that is known as creating Spec Ops: The Line and Dreadnought that is about to come. Despite its name, Dead Island 2 is not situated on an island anymore; the game will take place in California, its West Coast to be concrete.
As the original Dead Island was located on the island of Banoi, such plot change in Dead Island 2 seems to be a huge deal for some of the game fans. Such places as San Francisco pier, Hollywood Hills and LA beaches may appear in the Dead Island 2 as well. Game fans that have been playing Dead Island for ages might feel lost in such environment, filled with beautiful houses rather than jungle. As Dead Island 2 plot declares, the whole state of California is full of zombies and only a small amount of people are left there to fight with them.
Rick Furry might be the first motion-captured cat in a video game, as Yager stated. Some game fans might remember Max from the game trailer as he is quite a character. The main problem with Max is that he is not immune to the zombie virus so that keeps him in quite a danger while fighting through the infected Dead Island 2 zombie world. Dead Island 2 has some characters that are immune to the zombie infections. These are: Hunter, Speeder, Bishop and Bezerker. In Dead Island 2 you will not be the only one that are opening fire in the streets of sunny California, other militarized groups like US government will also be there to fight you.
Dead Island 2 will be focusing on melee battle, as we can see from its weapons of choice. Game players will have an opportunity to use handcrafted weapons as well as using motorized guns that you will be able to adapt. It is only a matter of your own experience, whether you will enjoy all of these new weapons in Dead Island 2 or not. To be honest, we were never huge fans of battles in Dead Island as they seemed to slow and poorly animated. The situation with the visuals seems to improve in Dead Island 2 as it will have its Unreal Engine 4 graphics and they look really better.
As the Dead Island 2 developers Yager states, the main goal for them is to make battle in Dead Island 2 more entertaining, rather than realistic. And we have to admit that they quite succeeded. In the demo version of Dead Island 2 fighting and killing zombies just feels better. We also noticed some other good improvements in Dead Island 2. There are options of 8 players’ multiplayer mode and a new fury attack. The one thing that makes all the joy less joyful is that we will have to wait for Dead Island 2 to hit our screens until 2015. Dead Island 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
