At E3, Deep Silver showed off a cinematic trailer for a proper Dead Island sequel. Under the care of new developer Yager, this updated take on the melee zombie slasher looks to include some smart tweaks to the formula.

One of the things that strikes us immediately is a more balanced approach to firearms. In past Dead Island titles, guns were a rarity. The melee crafting system (still clearly in place) was the centerpiece. Now, it looks like guns will be the subject of your workbench experiments, too.

Dead Island 2 is here at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. We'll be playing some new content this week and bringing you updated impressions. For more, be sure to check out our preview from E3.

Deep Silver is releasing the title in 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
