Dead Island 2 EGX stage demo shows friends come in handy

Dead Island 2 Gamescom Screen 02

The sequel to Dead Island shows off it's co-op play along with new zombies, weapons, and plenty of gore.

During EGX last week and over the weekend the Dead Island 2 developers, Yager Development, were on hand to let people have a hands-on experience with the game. Before people got to grips with the demo however, a stage demo was presented.

Dead Island 2 is the sequel to 2011's Dead Island, but this time instead of actually being on an island it's setting is California, namely LA and San Franciso, with a third location which is yet to be revealed.

In the demo video below we see some co-op play between three players as they enter a department store, tackle some zombies, and move on to complete their objectives. Plenty of zombie slaying below, with gore and dismemberment, so discretion is advised.

Dead Island 2 is due for release in Spring 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
