Dead Island 2: Release time, where to play and more
Dead Island 2 is the much awaited sequel to Deep Silver’s Dambuster Studios’ 2011 zombie-hunting original game. The game will finally launch in April 2023 after facing a number of obstacles, including studio changes and delays, before its initial 2015 release date.
A zombie-infested Los Angeles is the setting for the story, and players must struggle to survive there as one of the six playable characters or with friends via the online co-op capabilities. Heavy physical fighting, semi-open world exploration, novel new weapons, and a huge variety of zombie variations are all included in the gameplay.
The main objective is to kill as many zombies as you can and get out of the big city of Los Angeles. The Dead Island 2 release date and hours are all listed in this guide now that the wait is almost over.
