Sumo Digital, the primary developer on LittleBigPlanet 3, is picking up where Yager left off. This comes as somewhat mixed news as this marks the third developer to work on this project. Techland opted out to instead work on Dying Light, Yager and Deep Silver parted when the companies' "respective visions of the project fell out of alignment," and now Sumo is taking the reins. There's a lot of speculation that can be made about a game that's changed hands that many times.

PS4 players are certainly getting some extra love, between this and PS4 players getting a fifth extra character class. The only currently known way to have access to the Dead Island 2 beta is to have preordered Escape Dead Island, a spin-off game in the franchise. It's quite a different beast than Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide. Hopefully more ways to get into the beta will be announced in the future.

In a recent interview with VG24/7, Isaac Ashdown, senior gameplay producer, let it be known that Dead Island 2 was built with co-op at the core. "One thing we really get from players of the original is how co-op play with friends was a big factor in why they stuck with it," he stated. YAGER, the dev's behind the title, grabbed onto the co-op hook and ran directly into a playground packed to the brim with shambling corpses.

A few months after the events of the first Dead Island, the infection spread to the continental United States and the state (island?) of California has been quarantined by the government. While the zombie outbreak is under control in Dead Island 2, there are still uninfected humans inside the quarantine zone. The catch here is that these uninfected...
