Dead Island 2 will be playable on the show floor at next month's Gamescom, Deep Silver has announced, "marking the first time a Dead Island game will be playable on German soil".

The upcoming action-horror will be joined by fellow Deep Silver titles Dead Island: Epidemic, Sacred 3, Risen 3: Titan Lords, Emergency 5 and Metro Redux. Homefront: The Revolution and third-person spin-off Escape Dead Island, however, both appear to be skipping the show floor.

Deep Silver is the third major publisher to confirm the lineup of titles it's taking to Gamescom, following Square Enix and Konami's announcements earlier this week.

Last night it was revealed that Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media had acquired the Homefront IP from Crytek, transitioning development of Homefront: The Revolution from Crytek UK to new studio Deep Silver Dambuster.
