To Techland’s credit score, some primary info like that is one thing not less than. Whereas followers can count on extra info on Dying Mild 2 this 12 months, there’s nothing to be mentioned about Lifeless Island 2. No less than on this race of data at a snail’s tempo, Dying Mild 2 is doing greater than disappearing into the background, but one slip may seen one zombie recreation eat the opposite.
