Dead Island 2 will feature six playable characters with unique voices and traits, and the entire story takes place in Los Angeles. The game is also made as a true love letter to cult horror films and old Hollywood creations: a messy but dense story, classic RPG elements and a cooperative mode for up to 3 players. All six main characters are customizable, and an all-new skill system allows players to adjust their abilities on the fly. There are also dozens of different types of zombies to take down.

Dead Island 2 is the direct sequel to the original 2011 game, although there were a few small episodes in the series. The game was announced in 2014 and has had a lot of ups and downs since then, falling victim to numerous studio sales and other team changes. Today, it is under construction at Dambuster Studios, from Deep Silver, which notably worked on Homefront : The Revolution.

And quite unexpectedly, Dead Island 2 will be the first game to use Alexa Game Control, a service from Amazon that allows players to use voice while in-game and see the game perform appropriate actions. Anyway, that’s the idea. You won’t need an Echo device to use voice commands in Dead Island 2, a simple headset with built-in microphone is sufficient. And you won’t have to start your sentences with “Alexa” either. The tech will respond to certain key phrases, like “take my best weapon” or “where is the nearest workbench?” You’ll also be able to manipulate hordes of undead by saying “hey zombie”, which should be really nice.
You’re the star of the show now.
