You might want to skip your workout today after a terrifying taste of this bloody new trailer for Dead Island 2, in which a simple stroll down the California boardwalk becomes a full-on brain banquet for fitness-crazed deadheads.  This time out, it's a violent, visceral trip to the land-locked Sunshine State with developer Deep Silver switching locations to the zombie-infested West Coast.  Rather than color the E3 announcement trailer with a tragic, melancholy tone as in the original game, this teaser seems to revel in its slaughter-filled excess and surreal setting.  Here's the official synopsis:

Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine. Now a restricted zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for renegades who seek adventure, glory and a fresh start. Combining the classic Dead Island elements of immersive close combat, action and role-playing, Dead Island 2 features crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters in taking players from the iconic Golden Gate to the celebrated beachfront boardwalk of California’s Venice Beach.

How do you like the running zombie rampage?  Will you be taking this unreal trip when Dead Island 2 invades Xbox One and PS4 consoles next year?
