The Lifeless Island Twitter account was celebrating the discharge of their cell spin-off sport known as Lifeless Island: Survivors for iOS and Android. This cell entry into the zombie motion franchise is a really totally different beast than the unique two video games nevertheless, with a top-down view and tower protection parts. Followers of the unique Lifeless Island video games naturally couldn’t assist themselves and used the prospect to inquire concerning the long-announced sequel. Normally these type of questions merely get ignored however this time we really obtained a solution.
Lifeless Island 2 appears to be like to be nonetheless in improvement and never like many assumed, pale into quasi-cancellation. In spite of everything, Lifeless Island 2 was initially introduced method again in 2014 throughout Sony’s E3 briefing. However whereas we obtained a pleasant trailer to accompany the announcement, it obtained quiet very fast across the sport, and we didn’t hear a lot from it ever since.
The unique Lifeless Island was developed by Techland and launched in 2011.

It grew to become a hit regardless of having a repetitive gameplay, sufficient to warrant a sequel with Lifeless Island: Riptide two years later. An open-world ravaged by zombies and a deal with close-quarter melee fight has confirmed to be an untapped components for fulfillment.
Techland went on to work with Warner Bros. Interactive and created Dying Gentle in 2015. A non secular sequel to Lifeless Island which refined and improved virtually each side of the unique sport.
