Zombie games often catch a lot of heat because of their similar settings and tones. They range from survival simulation to Lovecraftian co-op period pieces, and if you like, you can even take a shambling detour through tower defence and post-apocalypse parkour. However, for horror video-games lovers, the Dead Island 2 release date is what's been lingering in their minds.
Dead Island 2 is an action-RPG survival-horror video game. It was developed by a German developer under the name Yager Development and published by Deep Silver. The video game is a sequel to the 2011's famous and well-received Dead Island. In addition, it was the second instalment in the video-gaming series.
