Yager raised Dead Island 2's co-op headcount after seeing Xbox One's cloud support

Can Dead Island still be called Dead Island if it isn't set on an island any more? Seems like a liberal use of poetic license if you ask me, but at least new development studio Yager is taking the Dead part in the title to heart.

So Yager went from 2 player co-op to 8 player co-op by using the Cloud.

The more the merrier when it comes to killing zombies.

Except it's 8 players on both consoles

That being said, this game is looking more and more like Dead Rising than Dead Island, and not only that it seems like it's trumping everything Dead Rising tried to do.

It look MUCH BETTER, it has 8 player co-op, it's as they describe it "the smallest open world MMO", and it looks fun.

I was completely disappointed by the other Dead Island games, but the tone in this one sales the game. I don't like that there's no real story or end to the game, but that seems to be a trend for these new open world games. Looking forward to seeing more.

Well, The original dead Island and Rip tide were four player co-op. Eight player Co-op is not exactly new either. Resistance 2 on PS3 had an excellent eight player co-op.

I'm not sure what the 'cloud' has to do with this at all to be honest seeing as it's eight player co-op on both consoles. Still, this along with Dying light should keep me happy early next year when they are both released.

You dumb for blaming the artical. Its the developer who said this. This artical is the middle man lol ;p

The author didn't bother to ask about the implications of the statement. This is poor journalism.

Which means we only have half of the story from a console-centric site about a multiplatform title.

A story which would become worthless once all the info is in, if co-op on the PS4 is less, but by the time such is known this article will have been forgotten.

1) The cloud is necessary for the XBO to keep up with the PS4 version.


2) The PS4 version will have less players in co-op.

Which is it?

Daz1438d ago

Time will tell. but there properly both the same.

Godmars2901438d ago

According to an IGN article, which is either PS4-only or multi in reference, 8-player co-op is standard to both platforms.

Great. Thanks for the link! Helpful bubble.

Every one knows the Cloud is an old Apple 2 GS hooked to the Internet with a 2400 baud modem. This HARDLY makes up for the 4,000,000x power difference between the PS4 and Xbone. X BOX version will be 22p and run at 2 fps.
