Today's showcase featured a live-action
pulp-adventure starring three fictional characters set in a similar universe to
Dead Island 2. With the military long gone, we follow the fearless survivors as
they search for a safe haven from the virus outbreak and zombie hordes. As they
roam the supposedly abandoned mansion of a local video game and movie producer
in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills, they’ll soon discover that nowhere is safe.
The new Dead Island 2 Welcome To HELL-A Trailer also premiered – narrated by
Jacob and Amy, two of the game’s slayers, as they visit HELL-A. Witness Dead
Island 2's unique gore tech, upgradable weapon and combat system, and, of
course, its gruesome zombies. Join the slayers as they take you on a tour around
the stylish, sunbaked zombie-smashing playground of HELL-A.
Another surprise inside the showcase was a sneak peek into the Alexa Game
Control feature, which allows players to quickly perform in-game actions using
their voice. This feature will be launching in Dead Island 2 for Xbox and PC,
for English in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Currently available to pre-order, the highly collectible Dead Island 2: HELL-A
Edition is full of unique items from the game world to further the immersion of
every Dead Island fan.
Players who pre-order any edition of Dead Island 2 will receive the "Memories Of
Banoi Pack," featuring two unique weapons that celebrate the original Dead
Island, along with a special skill card.
Last but not least, a stunning, hand-painted resin collector figurine of Amy,
posed chilling in the iconic Burger 66 diner after a zombie slaying session.
