AFK Today 8/26/2022


Good afternoon everyone! We’ve got a few updates coming out of Gamescom this week. We’re sure there will be some additional news after it concludes this weekend. We’ve also got a few interesting Steam sales for you to checkout! Let’s get into it.



Dead Island 2 Is Finally Getting Released

A trailer for Dead Island 2 was released during Gamescom this week, after almost 10 years of no new information about it. IGN got their hands on a preview of it here if you are interested. From the looks of things, the game will most likely be a quality successor to the first game. If it can keep the loot system interesting and the combat bloody, I think most fans will enjoy what it has to offer. It also looks like character progression and weapon add-ons will be coming back with improvements as well. Whether this will all add up to a great game is up for you to decide with its release on February 3rd, 2023.

The zombie apocalypse parkour game finally gets more info on how they are going to expand the game. Gladiatorial combat could be a great addition to the zombie formula, and parkour in close quarters combat will be a great new gameplay loop. How the story will grow hasn’t been explained yet, but it will all be revealed on October 13th with its release. Check out the trailer and more info on PCGamer here.


Stranded: Alien Dawn Early Access Set for October

As we all know, survival and battle royale style games have flooded the market. Stranded: Alien Dawn adds to the ever growing list and for some, it might seem a bit repetitive. Don't get us wrong, we love a great survival game and will fight each other off for the best loot. With Stranded: Alien dawn, we see a slightly different outlook. This survival setting starts off where some allies have been marooned on an alien planet and you're left with the bare minimum of equipment to start. Scavenge the land, discover new recipes, new farming methods and forge new gear to protect the survivors. As we know of now, the early access game is planned to be released sometime in October and will be a single player survival game with an end goal in sight. Will Stranded: Alien Dawn shine with the rest or become forgotten?
