Dead Island 2 Empress – Sometimes, the story behind a game’s development is more interesting than the game itself. This is one of those stories. The sequel to the 2011 game Dead Island started development in 2012, but it’s been through at least three different development studios since then. German studio Yager worked on it for three years, then publisher Deep Silver gave it to Sumo Digital for another three years, before finally ending up with Deep Silver’s own in-house studio, Dambusters. Despite its troubled development, everyone involved managed to finish the game, though it still shows the scars.
The sequel takes place in a post-zombie-apocalypse version of Los Angeles, where you’ll explore sprawling mansions, movie sets, and beaches. At the start, you choose one of six characters, each with different stats and abilities. As you try to escape the city, you must also solve the mystery of how the outbreak started and if there’s a cure. Along the way, you’ll meet survivors, including stoners, preppers, and influencers, who all have a role to play in the story. And of course, there will be plenty of undead monsters to smash along the way.
