GAME ENGINE AND VISUAL STYLE

Dead Island 2 is a third-person zombie action game developed and published by Dambuster Studios and published by Deep Silver. The game is a sequel to the popular game Dead Island released in 2011. Here is the full story behind the development of Dead Island 2:

Dead Island 2 was announced at E3 2014. The game was originally developed by Yager Development, the creators of Spec Ops: The Line. The announcement featured a trailer showcasing gameplay and new gameplay features.

DeadIsland Win64 Shipping 2023 04 21 01 18 47 059

In July 2015, Deep Silver announced that they were ending their partnership with Yager Development. The cause was a disagreement between the publisher and developer over the creative vision and direction of the game.

In March 2016, it became known that Sumo Digital would resume development of the game. Publisher Deep Silver announced a collaboration with a new developer and stressed that the joint work will be aimed at creating a quality product.

During 2017-2019, development on Dead Island 2 continued, but details about the process and progress were scarce. From time to time, the publisher has updated the community on development status, stating that the game is still in the works and will be released when it's ready.

In August 2019, it was announced that development on Dead Island 2 would be moved to Dambuster Studios, a studio owned by Deep Silver. Due to this transition, the development of the game was again slowed down.

From 2020 to 2023, development on Dead Island 2 continued at Dambuster Studios. Over the years, new trailers and gameplay footage have been introduced, as well as updates on the state of development. The game was eventually released and met with high interest from the gaming community.

AWayOut 2018 03 23 17 37 55 692

Dead Island 2 uses the Unreal Engine 4 game engine developed by Epic Games. Unreal Engine 4 is one of the most popular and powerful game engines on the market due to its flexibility, ease of use, and impressive visual capabilities.

DeadIsland Win64 Shipping 2023 04 21 01 36 07 392

Unreal Engine 4 offers developers a wide range of tools and features that allow them to create complex and high-quality game projects. The engine provides advanced lighting, reflection and shadow techniques, which allows you to create realistic scenes and high-quality textures. The engine also provides advanced physics and animation systems that make the movements of characters and objects look natural and realistic.

Unreal Engine 4 includes tools for developing sophisticated artificial intelligence and navigation systems, allowing zombies and other NPCs to behave intelligently and realistically. The engine also provides the ability to create vast open worlds with dynamic weather conditions and many interactive elements.

DeadIsland Win64 Shipping 2023 04 21 01 51 23 317

Unreal Engine 4 supports modifications and customization of game projects, which makes it easier for developers to create additional content and updates for the game. In general, the use of Unreal Engine 4 in Dead Island 2 made it possible to create an impressive and high-quality game product with excellent graphics, physics, animation and interesting game features.

GRAPHICS SETTINGS

Dead Island 2 offers an extensive range of graphics options, allowing players to customize the visual quality to suit their preferences and the capabilities of their computer.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings.

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

When using the minimum graphics settings in the game, you can expect lower quality textures, simplified details, simple lighting and shadow effects, as well as reduced quality of anti-aliasing edges and fog. While at maximum graphics settings, the game world will appear before the player in all its glory, with exquisite high-resolution textures and environmental detail.

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
