Believe it or not, Dead Island 2 has been around in some form for almost a decade now, and the final Xbox release is imminent! Dambuster Studios' colourful zombie romp hits Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on April 21st, so the team has decided to drop a substantial chunk of gameplay before launch.

The above clip shows 15 minutes of zombie slaying action across the game's flesh-ridden rendition of LA; aptly known as 'HELL-A' in-game.

Speaking of super obvious names for things, this deep dive also discusses the game's 'FLESH' system - basically how Dead Island 2 reacts to hacking away at zombie body parts. Any guesses for what this stands for? "Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids". We totally guessed that!

Anyway, silly acronyms aside, Dead Island 2 is looking rather nice we must admit, especially after going through what most would deem 'development hell' since its first reveal in 2014. Let's hope it all comes together when the game finally launches for real on April 21st, 2023.

Are you going to be slashing off zombie limbs in LA come April 21st? Let us know in the comments!
