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 bone-afide hit on its skeletal hands, coming to dominate UK sales charts through means of dark necromancy (sorry).
We really liked Dead Island 2, warts and all, as there really is just something so cathartic about defenestrating hapless zombies with fly kicks and variously bludgeoning and beheading them. It might sound psychotic, but we just can't help but marvel as the FLESH system does its hypnotically gruesome work.
Did you pick up a copy? Try and correctly guess how many years it will take for the inevitable Dead Island 3 to come out in the comments section below.
Should that read sweet? I suppose sweat will work in a gross way 🤣
Love that this game is succeeding after development hell. Kudos to all involved.
I didn't have high expectations for this tbh, even though I like the first Dead Island. I'm looking forward to playing this co-op with a friend soon. My copy should be here tomorrow. As long as it better than the disappointing Dying Light 2, I'm all in.
@Northern_munkey thank you sir
I picked up the original for like £3 a few months back. Along with the riptide dlc? Yet to start it but it's likely I won't get this until I've at least sampled the OG.
Dead Island 3 should be in the UK next
I had low expectations going in. Was suprised by how good this is. It's exactly what I needed. Just dumb fun. They really honed in on what makes zombie games fun. They deserve this succes!
@DTfeartheBEARD its far far more entertaining ,and it looks fantastic
I shall have a look at d.island 2 in near future ,good zombie games never gets old ,plain gd old fashioned fun
@tallythwack The FLESH system looks impressive! I watched the Digital Foundry video, and it runs at 1728p 60fps on PS5. That sounds good to me!
Glad dead Island 2 did good.1 million copies sold is a lot.especially since dead Island came out not that long ago.the graphics on ps5 looks really good and the gameplay looks fun.word up son
Just googled ‘Dead Island 2’ and I can’t wait for it to come out in 2 days 15 hours and 30 minutes on the 28th of this month 😜
Finished it a few hours ago and f'n loved every second. It won't win any awards, but sometimes everything lines up perfectly and a game comes along that feels like the devs tailor made it for you. That's how I feel about Dead Island 2 and it's absolutely going to end up on my top 10 of the year, if not my top 5.
@Actionhank89 @DrunkenEagle92 I'm looking forward to playing it in a few years myself, soon as it goes on sale for $20 New.
@GeneJacket How long was the story campaign by itself? And with the optional side quests?
@KidRyan I think the mainline story quest is roughly 20-25 hours, and it took me 47 to 100% it.
@GeneJacket That's a fair amount of gameplay value, thanks!
