Following the release date trailer, a gameplay-focused trailer was also revealed. The trailer provides a more detailed look at all six of the playable protagonists as well as the large variety of melee weapons and firearms at your disposal when dealing with the walking dead.

It's been a long time coming for Dead Island 2. The last time we got a new trailer for the game was E3 2014, meaning it's been a little over eight years.
