Gamers have been waiting for Dead Island 2 for a long, long time, and while we're promised by Deep Silver that something is still in the works, you'd be forgiven for having doubts at this point. The game has passed from developer to developer over its a troubled history, and a build from the version being developed by Yager has now leaked online.
The beta build is playable and is available online at the moment if you know where to look. There's plenty of footage on YouTube we chan share though, and from what I've watched, it looks like the Dead Island experience we know and love.
It seems based on the first but overall seems fairly well polished for a game at this stage in development. The build dates from approximately five years ago.
How close this will be to the final version of Dead Island 2, assuming it ever releases, remains to be seen. We'll be sure to keep an eye on the situation and report on any further developments.
