You might want to skip your workout today after a terrifying taste of this bloody new trailer for Dead Island 2, in which a simple stroll down the California boardwalk becomes a full-on brain banquet for fitness-crazed deadheads. This time out, it’s a violent, visceral trip to the land-locked Sunshine State with developer Deep Silver switching locations to the zombie-infested West Coast. Rather than colour the E3 announcement trailer with a tragic, melancholy tone as in the original game, this teaser seems to revel in its slaughter-filled excess and surreal setting.
Watch the world debut of Rainbow Six Siege multiplayer gameplay in this intense, new look into the gripping world of Rainbow counter-terrorism units.

A five-minute staged “gameplay demonstration” fresh out of E3 shows friends being friendly, supporting each other, using abilities carefully, and generally making the game look awfully good fun. None of that would ever happen with the people I play with. We won’t carefully orchestrate and execute plans, we’ll run around doing as we please, whether that’s chasing the glory of murdering particularly tough enemies or pausing to admire holographic reactions of people caught in the disaster. It’ll be chaotic, and awesome.
The Paris-set stabathon has “the largest playground in the series to date”, and offers large crowd-filled scenes and the ability to switch between the main free world and incredibly detailed internal locations without pause.

He survives, miraculously, but only to have a worse fate thrust upon him. Will you play it?

There are a few elements that look interesting, such as jet packs, a laser rifle, and grenades that ‘paint’ enemies with digital red pixels so you can see where they are. Oh, and there’s a swarm of drones that move about like sentinels from The Matrix movies. The next chapter in the multi-million dollar selling Call of Duty franchise will take place in a futuristic setting and will be released on November 4 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

“I’m not a murderer”, the man in the trailer says, mere moments before setting off on a murder spree notable for both its creativity and staggering number of victims. But is it murder if the victims are already dead? These are the questions that Dying Light, Techland’s upcoming zombie game, may or may not inspire you to ask yourself as you bury your hatchet into the forehead of a staggering, rotting creature that used to be somebody’s mother. Will you play it?
