Dead Island 2 Drops A Gleefully Gory Gameplay Trailer

fb share tweet share

We recently wrote about the potential adaptation of the best selling zombie video game Dead Island, which, pardon the pun, came back from the dead after it hadn’t been heard from in a long time. In that report, we also mentioned the upcoming sequel, Dead Island 2. Well this morning, game publisher Deep Silver released a new gameplay trailer for the game, and it’s here to show you just how many ways you can kill a zombie, and how much fun you can in the process of bashing, slashing, and blasting the undead to smithereens.

And that’s exactly what you see in this footage. Just a heads up, this game might not be for the faint of heart, there are guns, guts, and gore splattering everywhere. When they say “Come for the sun, stay for the slaughter,” by all appearances they mean exactly that. “Fry ‘em, freeze ‘em, slice ‘em” isn’t just hyperbole, you can do all of that and more. There are hatchets, machetes, clubs, shotguns, and even more improvised weapons, like a weed whacker with spinning blades attached to the base.

fb share tweet share

Though it started off a little rocky, season 4 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is easily the best of the franchise so far, especially the second half of the season. And it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger to boot. One aspect of the season finale that garnered a lot of attention was the last line. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) says what is probably the most badass thing he’s ever said, something that makes fans of the comics have hope that he’s on his way to becoming the character he is in the Robert Kirkman’s books. But this is TV, so he can’t say exactly what most of us would in this situation, you know, censors and all, but now, in this video, you can see an alternate take. Be warned, there are swears.

Perusing the upcoming slate of shows currently in development or production over at Syfy, there are definitely a few popular types of shows that the network hopes to capitalize on. Among others, there’s a clone drama (Clone), a time travel adventure (12 Monkeys), and, of course, zombies. Their upcoming entry into the undead sweepstakes, Z Nation is set to debut this September, and now we have our first good look at the series.

Aside from the bare bones of the story and set up, you don’t learn too much about Z Nation from this trailer. Action and post-zombie mayhem are the key features in this video, that and a zombie baby. You can bet their going to play that card in order to traumatize a character that can’t believe he has to shoot a baby in the head. People seem to have a big problem doing that.

We weren’t at Comic-Con this year, we’re afraid of crowds and bright colors, but our dear friends at Cinema Blend aren’t the scaredy-cats that we are, and we all over the massive nerd gathering. They got the opportunity to sit down at roundtables with some of the writers and producers of The Walking Dead, and were able to gather some insight into the upcoming season, as well as some news on the long-gestating spin off.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Opens With A Scene That Shocks Even The Cast And Crew

fb share tweet share

Walking DeadSeason four of AMC’s The Walking Dead was far and away the best the zombie drama has ever been, especially the final eight episodes. Between that momentum, and the grim, intense trailer for season five that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, it’s a good time to be a fan. Last season ended on a cliffhanger, and we’ve been promised time and again that the new episodes will “hit the ground running.” Now thanks to showrunner Scott Gimple, director/producer/special effects guru Greg Nicotero, and some of the cast, we have a better idea of what that “running” will look like, and it is going to be rough.

We weren’t able to be at Comic-Con, but our big sister Cinema Blend was all over that mess, and they had a chance to sit down with Gimple, Nicotero, and others to chat about the upcoming season. According to their talk, the first six minutes of the premiere episode is going to be totally bonkers. Star Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, the leader of a rag tag group of survivors trying to navigate a zombie apocalypse, says the cast and crew were all shocked by what goes down. He says, “All of us were just dumbstruck and said, ‘We’re not going to be able to show this. We’re not going to be able to show this.’…We are showing it.”
