dead island 2 gamescomDeep Silver have a lot planned for this year's Gamescom, but perhaps the most exciting thing to come from the developer is a hands-on look at Dead Island 2. Those visiting Gamescom will have the chance to play Dead Island 2 for themselves, marking the first time Deep Silver have let the game go public.

Whilst we may not get a fully featured official gameplay showcase of Dead Island 2 at Gamescom 2014, we can expect to see a large amount of gameplay content hit the internet as soon as the world gets it's hands on the Deep Silver game booths available at the event.

In total, Deep Silver will have 150 different PC and console gaming stations scattered around Gamescom 2014, which should be enough to give a large amount of players a chance to experience Dead Island 2 over the days the event is held.

Dead Island 2 has been set for a release in Early 2015. Unlike previous titles in the franchise, Dead Island 2 will be developed by Yager, a team that has not previously worked on Dead Island at all.

On top of having Dead Island 2 gameplay showcases, Deep Silver will also be giving visitors of Gamescom 2014 the chance to play Dead Island Epidemic, Metro Redux, Risen 3: Lords, Sacred 3, and Emergency 5.

Gamescom 2014 will take place from August 13th to August 17th in Cologne. This is definitely one of the biggest events of the year for Deep Silver, and we'll have a lot to talk about as soon as Gamescom is under way.
