Dead Island 2 is a survival horror RPG developed by Yager Development and published by Deep Silver. It is the third major release in Dead Island saga and the continuation of the story of Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide. Available for PC, and the next-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this release is set in sunny California, a great change if you take into account the paradisiacal islands in which the previous games took place.
One of the main characters will be Max Furry, who along his little cat Rick, survives in California. Thanks to Rick, the developers can feel proud of themselves since they are the first ones that have carried out a motion capture with a cat. If you have watched the cinematic trailer and you a fan of the saga, you will have noticed that the tone is much more humoristic that the tone of the former titles. However, do not worry; the horror aspect is still present in the game. Nevertheless, there will also be funny moments that will make you laugh aloud. One of the examples was displayed in the demo available in the Gamescom of Colonia: players will be able to kill zombies to the rhythm of the song "Love Is In The Air" in a mansion.
And...what can we expect from the developers of the excellent but underrated videogame Spec Ops: The Line? Well, we can expect an incredible plot that undoubtedly will mean you cannot stop playing. In addition, the graphics are another aspect worth mentioning. They have used the Unreal Engine to design the graphics, so you can expect amazingly realistic visuals. The visuals are worthy of the next generation of games: the amount of details that are displayed in the environment is astonishing. From particle effects to weather conditions, without forgetting the level of detail of the characters and the zombies, you will be amazed once you download Dead Island 2 and start playing it.
Dead Island 2 will give you the ability to choose between four classes of survivors (five in the PlayStation 4 platform). These classes are the Berserker, the Speeder, the Hunter and the Bishop. Each class has its own abilities, and these abilities are different enough to make the gameplay vary substantially. The combat will be much more visceral, rude and dynamic that the combats of the previous titles. The new combat system includes new movements and this time, the environment does play an important role. You will be able to activate car alarms to make zombies appear, to blow up gas barrels to defeat dozens of zombies in a row, or even make a chandelier fall from the ceiling and crush some enemies.

In regards to classes, the Berserker is something like a tank. He will have control over very heavy weapons and is very resistant against hits. The Speeder is agile and fast, her hits are not as powerful as the ones of the Berserker, but her control over bladed weapons is excellent (somewhat as Michonne in The Walking Dead). The Hunter is the one in charge of the ranged attacks. She will rely on crossbows, sniper rifles, etc. Finally, you will be able to choose the Bishop, which is the support character. He will be able to heal the rest of the group, use explosive weapons, etc.
Finally, I have to mention the multiplayer option in this game. If you liked having fun with up to three friends in Dead Island, the news I have for you will make you happy. Now, the multiplayer mode is available for up to eight players, and you can decide if you can to cooperate, to compete, or just to coexist. You can play with your friends or as a single-player, but it will be funnier if you share your game with some friends.
