Dead Island 2 Is Out Now
Slay Across Hollywood Boulevard, Dead Island 2 Is Out Now
California dreamin’ becomes a nightmare, it’s time to hit HELL-A
Following its announcement eight months ago, Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver are thrilled to announce that Dead Island 2 is out now on PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
Set in Los Angeles, or HELL-A as it’s known in Dead Island 2, players choose from one of six bombastic survivors turned slayers – Amy, Bruno, Dani, Ryan, Carla, and Jacob – each with their own personalities and unique range of abilities, the latter of which can be customised using the brand-new Skill Cards system.
With the once prosperous city of LA quarantined thanks to the deadly zombie virus, it’s down to the somehow immune slayer to embark on an epic, gore-filled journey, meet a colorful cast of characters, and explore well-known locations such as Beverly Hills, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica to uncover the truth behind the outbreak and the horrifying transformation they’ve undergone following a bite from a zombie.
Dead Island 2 makes zombie slaying feel more up-close and personal than ever thanks to Dambuster’s F.L.E.S.H. (Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids) system, which makes zombie dismemberment gloriously gory. To assist in this carnage, the game offers tons of weapons, mods, and skills to craft and equip, letting players build their own unique, devastating arsenal.
There are dozens of distinct zombie types, each with their own mutations, attacks, and LA-themed variations. If players need a helping hand, they can bring friends into the fray with co-op mode (up to three players) and ensure a lengthy stay in HELL-A.
Dead Island 2 is out now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4 , PS5, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
