What is the Setting of Dead Island 2?

Dead Island 2 is set in Los Angeles, California or, as it’s aptly named, HELL-A. When the game was first announced back in 2014, the original developers introduced that the sequel would be heading to LA, and it seems that the location has stayed consistent despite the shuffling of teams.

The official website states that fans will be visiting all of the most iconic locations in the City of Angels, including Beverly Hills and Venice Beach, as players set out to discover the cause of the outbreak and how to survive it.

That’s all you need to know about Dead Island 2’s setting. Be sure to check out the full reveal, including a new gameplay trailer as well as other Gamescom announcements such as the debut of Where Wind Meets, the new Gotham Knights trailer, and some similar zombie fun in brand new footage from The Callisto Protocol.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
