Dreadnought: This ain't your daddy's Battlestar

Dead Island 2 turns its frown upside down

It's not the "world's first motion-captured cat," nor the lovely, gory graphics that should attract players to Dead Island 2. Instead, it's that developer Yager is proudly crafting a game that lets players live out their gory dreams of surviving amidst the zombie apocalypse with the core goal...
