Dead Island 2 launch trailer invites you to HELL-A

Dead Island 2 launch trailer invites you to HELL-A

The rule is simple: if there is a launch trailer, it means that the game looms near. Developer Dambuster Studios and publisher Deep Silver are excited to welcome you and everyone to HELL-A, the cute nickname Los Angeles earned when it got infested by deadly human-eating monsters. The ultra-anticipated Dead Island 2 launch is so close you can smell the foulness from the rotten bodies.

With excitement bursting like a zombie packed with grenades, a launch trailer is now available for anyone needing more convincing before opening their wallet. The preview shows off more kickass action before you dive into Dead Island 2's main course of zombie-cleaving mayhem. Watch the game launch trailer right now: 



The long-awaited next entry in the Dead Island franchise, Dead Island 2, places players in the shoes of one of six bombastic survivors - Amy, Bruno, Dani, Ryan, Carla, and Jacob. After discovering they're immune to the zombie virus the hard way, humanity's future is in your hands. Aided by newfound friends, including the original Dead Island's Sam B., players must escape from HELL-A before the rest of the world succumbs to the undead plague. If we may be so bold, it's quite the contrasting take compared to that of The Last of Us.

Standing in your way are the undead hordes of Angelinos, as varied as they once were in life. Slaughter reanimated muscle-beach hunks, fashionable celebrities, and beach bums alike in gruesome style with a variety of weapons. Whether you're slashing them up with knives, chopping them with an electrified axe, or turning them into swiss cheese with an assault rifle, Dead Island 2's blood-drenched action is a gory spectacle to behold.

With different environmental effects to experiment with and your own strange abilities as an infected yet seemingly immune zombie virus survivor, there are ample ways to take out the undead. As long as there's a trail of gore behind you, there isn't a wrong way to mow down the hordes. Every Slayer has different personalities, stats, and abilities. Still, Dead Island 2 features a flexible skill system that allows robust customization for every character.

Dead Island 2 is set to launch on April 21st for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. If you're eager for some gruesome gore, with flashy deaths and stellar visuals, check out our comparator for the best deals on Dead Island 2 CD keys, and welcome to HELL-A.
