When there’s no extra room in growth hell
We’re a couple of month away from Lifeless Island 2’s escape from growth hell, so Deep Silver is getting us primed with a peek on the sport’s intro cinematic.
Within the fashionable intro, we’re proven varied eerie scenes from “HELL-A,” the zombie-fied model of Los Angeles. Whereas it’s no zombie-child being defenestrated in reverse, the intro is lots moody, with a sluggish, reverb-laced tune taking part in over high of acquainted locations in varied states of dereliction. Whereas it’s clearly attempting to disturb you with its depiction of a vacant society, it does so in a reasonably fashionable manner. The cinematic was performed by ELASTIC, who has additionally had a hand in quite a lot of cool stuff, and their work for Lifeless Island 2 will not be exception.
Whereas I wouldn’t say I’m burnt out on zombies, the unique Lifeless Island left me lower than enthused a couple of sequel. I performed it with a pal a variety of years in the past, and the standout moments for me had been when a man saved pestering us for empty bottles and once we needed to go to a zombie manufacturing facility. I don’t bear in mind if it was really a zombie manufacturing facility or if it was simply the place the zombies got here from, however I turned to my pal and puzzled allowed what had occurred to our plan of escape.
Perhaps there was a superb purpose why we had been going to the zombie manufacturing facility; I don’t know. It simply appeared like an odd detour for a bunch of rubes simply attempting to outlive. Perhaps I’ll play Lifeless Island 2. I don’t know. Nonetheless, it is going to take greater than a cinematic trailer to persuade me to place my cash down.
Lifeless Island 2 is lurching towards an April 21 launch date on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
