The game itself starts in Savannah Georgia and ends in New Orleans during a viral zombie outbreak. The campaign available in the demo is "The Parish", set in New Orleans. It's a lot like the first one, but with a few changes. The characters are all new, a guy named Nick who is a gambler and conman, a reporter named Rochelle who looks like she just came from the hair dresser, a big guy called Coach that looks like the dad from Family Matters, and a redneck mechanic named Ellis who won't shut up about all the dumb crap he's seen and done in the twenty or so years he's been alive. They seem like an unlikely group, but then again, so did the group from the first game.
