A Zom-pocalypse worth the wait
Nine years ago, Dead Island 2 entered the public zeitgeist with a vibrant and funny reveal trailer. It teased a new, colourful setting in L.A. whilst doubling down on that irreverent tone of the original game. However, as the years passed on, the rumour mill began to churn out tales of internal struggles, with the...
Sorry, no Dead Island 2 screenshots yet.
Prepare for your trip to Hell-A
Looking for some Dead Island 2 tips and tricks? The oft-delayed outing has finally been set loose after a wild nine year wait, bringing us sun-bleached beaches, a cocktail of deadly weapons, and of course, lots and lots of zombies. But while most of us gamers will be well-versed in the art of zombie-killing, you...
Haus expansion out now
The first of two expansions for Dead Island 2 has now launched on PS5 and PS4, titled Haus. Featuring a new storyline, location, weapons, and skill cards, it sees your character let loose in a "surreal, psycho-horror dreamscape" inside a big Malibu villa. Check out the launch trailer above. The DLC is priced at £9.99 /...
Have another helping
Dead Island 2 had dragged down more than a million players back in April, and we'd bet the undead RPG has shipped more than a couple of copies since. Publisher Deep Silver has announced it will be supported by two expansions, which will add additional story content to the over-the-top co-op RPG. Both expansions are included in...
Back from the dead
Dead Island 2 has been shuffling around PS5 and PS4 for over a week now, and so it's time to find out what you lot think about this latest zombie-smushing title. It's fair to say that we've been waiting on this one for a while — the project itself was rebooted multiple times after its initial reveal all the way back in... 2014?!...
The sweet smell of formaldehyde and success
Dead Island 2 emerged from its corporeal slumber barely three days ago, with the stank of the charnel house still upon it, and already the undead sequel has racked up a body count of more than 1 million copies sold. It looks like Dambuster Studios could have a hit on its skeletal hands, coming to dominate...
Dead and loving it
The year is 2023, and Dead Island 2 is an actual video game that just released. If you can still remember the project's initial teaser trailer for all those years ago, then you might find this whole situation quite surreal. The craziest part, though? Against all odds, the game's actually good fun. We gave this latest...
Imagine telling the studio at the time Yager Entertainment that the project it's working on will not receive a launch trailer for another nine years. And it wouldn't even be the developer to actually put it out. Originally revealed all the way back at E3 2014, it's finally time for Dead Island 2 to actually release on PS5, PS4. It's...
Believe it or not, Dead Island 2 is very nearly here. The game, thought to be lost to time, releases on 21st April 2023, and it's looking surprisingly promising. Its tongue-in-cheek (but no less grisly) take on a zombie apocalypse is on full display in this new video from IGN, documenting the opening few minutes of the open world...
Who do you voodoo?
Dead Island 2 claws its way onto PS5 and PS4 at the end of the month, on 31st April, and we got a glimpse at the undead action RPG's spoiler-free Trophy list, which is only missing those directly related to story progression. Coming to us via TrueTrophies, it looks like the list itself is going to require some solid work to get...
As is now tradition
Dead Island 2 is right around the corner, launching on 21st April on PS5 and PS4. We've been waiting a long time for this one, and its starting to feel a little more real now we have a cinematic trailer to accompany it. While it doesn't hit the unbelievable highs of the original Dead Island's iconic and now legendary reveal...
2 Hours Gameplay = 1 Year Development
Dead Island 2 has rapidly and somewhat unexpectedly become one of the more intriguing titles on the gaming horizon for us, thanks to positive preview impressions and that banger of a gameplay showcase from a couple of weeks back. It sounds like it will be a somewhat meaty offering for us to sink our teeth into,...
