I still don't understand why they put Dead Island 2 on hold to push out Dying Light 2. Between the two games, I found Dead Island so much more enjoyable. Who the heck doesn't want to be stranded on a beautiful island resort with the undead? It was such an awesome contrast. The beautiful views of the ocean and palm trees and the walking dead roaming the streets and areas.
I'm dying (pun intended) for a new Dead Island. Dying Light was such a common, typical location, I just couldn't into it much the same way DI grabbed me in.
Story in DL2 is irrelevant for me, so I don't mind if it's a "dud". Can't be any worse than DL. The article does mention that there are no guns in DL2 though, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I don't think I mind that as long as they nail the melee combat, and possibly include some throwing weapons. I didn't use guns in DL much except against human opponents that were also armed with guns, so maybe it's no big deal. Really looking forward to DL2.
Yea I would prefer the Dead Island setting
, as long as it had the polish and parkour of Dying Light. DI was great, but it was a bit janky. DL took the gameplay to another level and was a better game for it IMO.
I read somewhere else, maybe it was Game Informer, that it has plenty of things like throwing knives, bows, and crossbows, and that they work pretty well and even allow you to stealth if you want to. I'm looking forward to this even in single play if I can creep through levels firing off bow stealth shots until I'm noticed, then hightailing it for higher ground. Sounds great.
