The familiar but bloodied landmarks of Los Angeles – from the Santa Monica Pier to Hollywood Blvd. – are featured in Elastic and Feed Me Light’s cinematic trailer for video game Dead Island 2, coming in April.

Without showing one single zombie or zombie killer, the trailer makes clear exactly what’s happened as blood and gore spatter the endlessly sunny and colorful Southern California locales. The sequence is scored with “Drown,” by Karen O and Danger Mouse with a bespoke arrangement by Ben Sumner and Glenn Herweijer at Feel for Music.
Dead Island 2, produced by Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios, comes out April 21, 2023 for PC, Playstation and Xbox.
