This open world action role-playing game is described as a spin-off with its story picking up right after where Dead Island left off, as the five survivors find themselves on the island of Palanai in the Banoi archipelago, where it has been overrun by zombies.
The characters thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi via a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides. Zombies can swim now? It’s only a matter of time before they get their own Olympics. Zombie Olympics. Zomblympics?
