Considering that individuals' behavior could be affected by both the high-order neighbors (deep neighbors) and information diffusion, this paper explored the prisoner's dilemma (PD) evolution game model in a two-layer network which contains a game-layer network and an information-layer network. Firstly, based on the mean-field theory, we analyze the dynamic behavior of game evolution. Then, through a large number of numerical simulations, the effect of different parameters on the evolutionary game is analyzed. The results show that if the individuals blindly or actively receive information from others, further to choose ones' strategies based on the obtained information, the information diffusion does not lead to cooperation emergence. However, a larger influence decay coefficient can promote individuals' cooperation behaviors. In addition, one's activity rate has no significant impact on his strategy.
