Art Director of Dead Island 2 Adam Olsson said that the sequel will not be inferior to the original in terms of humor and horror.
He recalled the debut trailer for the first time-rewind game, which was gloomy and sad - but the project itself combined a mixture of humor and themes related to survival in a difficult situation.
And the authors of the sequel took these ideas into service, trying to create a project where there would be humorous and terrifying moments at the same time. The last point should help the new combat system, which allows you to deal with zombies in a variety of bloody ways.
The team is proud of the game's tone, as balancing the funny and scary elements was difficult in terms of story and art direction. At the same time, a lot of various references and details are hidden in the sequel, which should amuse the hunters for secrets.
Dead Island 2 is set to release on February 3rd for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
