Dambuster Studios Never Considered Remaking The Original Dead Island 2 Reveal Trailer
The unique Lifeless Island 2 reveal trailer is now an iconic (maybe notorious) second in video games. It was an ideal trailer, individuals had been excited, after which quick ahead almost a decade later, and the sport remains to be in improvement.
First revealed again in 2014, Lifeless Island 2 was in improvement at Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager, with Lifeless Island developer Techland having parted methods with the property to work on Dying Gentle. Writer Deep Silver handed over improvement of the sport to LittleBigPlanet 3 developer Sumo Digital in 2016, after which, in 2019, the corporate introduced that Homefront: The Revolution developer Dambuster Studios can be growing Lifeless Island 2. It is now 2023 and Dambuster’s Lifeless Island 2 is due out in April, lastly.
Dambuster revealed its new Lifeless Island 2 final yr and it did so with a elaborate new cinematic trailer, albeit one very completely different from the unique 2014 reveal. This is not essentially shocking – Dambuster says it has developed Lifeless Island 2 from a clear slate, from the bottom up. Throughout my cowl story journey to play 8 hours of Lifeless Island 2 at Dambuster’s Nottingham, England, location, I used to be curious: did the staff ever contemplate remaking the unique Lifeless Island 2 trailer? The reply was no.
“It wasn’t actually on our radar to redo the trailer,” Lifeless Island 2 recreation director David Stenton tells me. “I feel it is enjoyable to kind of take that trailer – particularly now the placement of the trailer – and see the way it applies to the tone of the Lifeless Island that we’re delivering. That trailer positively delivered on the postcard LA and I feel we ship on postcard LA differently.”
Nonetheless, although, I puzzled if Dambuster used that unique trailer as a guiding gentle for the sport’s improvement, particularly given how well-received it was in 2014 (even Goat Simulator 3 not too long ago remade the trailer).
“Probably not,” Stenton says. “We began with a clear slate, completely with our personal imaginative and prescient. We’re not wanting an excessive amount of at… what occurred prior to now or too many different video games on the market. We’re simply actually targeted on how can we need to make Lifeless Island 2 completely phenomenal, deliver it updated, and ship a recreation that we predict followers will actually get pleasure from.”
