Deep Silver (@deepsilver) and Dambuster Studios (@DSDambuster) just revealed four out of the six playable characters you can expect to see swaggering around HELL-A when Dead Island 2 (@deadislandgame) releases on April 21st, 2023.

Dead Island 2 Reveals Four Playable Characters - Jacob, Amy, Ryan and Dani

The latest to join the group of unlikely heroes are Ryan, who’s very much used to bringing the heat as a sexy firefighter, but in HELL-A dancing won’t get you far when slaying the infected; and Dani, an Irish rockabilly brawler with a knack for fecking up zombies!

Learn about each character below and follow the links to the official site for the full reveal and cosplay guides.

Dead Island 2 - Jacob


An antihero with rockstar flair, Jacob’s offbeat charm is paired with a reckless disregard for self-preservation. When his beloved mum passed, this successful London stockbroker left everything behind to follow his dream of being a Hollywood stuntman. Now his quips and Shakespearean quotes fall on undead ears as he revels in being a slayer in HELL-A. Lovely!

Dead Island 2 - Amy


Amy is a quick-witted Paralympian who has found something even better than her runner’s high: zombie-slaying! The risks keep her wired, the success keeps her pumped, and every battle is almost a puzzle to solve on the fly – like an obstacle course to keep her mind sharp. Laid-back, focused, and calm, very little can dent her California chill.

Dead Island 2 - Ryan


There’s much more to this exotic dancer than rippling pecs. Ryan has a stubborn streak a mile wide, pessimistic sarcasm as dry as the Sahara, and an indomitable heart. He’s on a mission to get back to his little brother, left behind in Fresno before the outbreak, and nothing – alive or dead – is going to stop him getting home.

Dead Island 2 - Dan


Hailing from the mosh pits of County Cork in Ireland, Dani is a headstrong rockabilly brawler with a foul mouth and a twisted sense of humor. She plows through zombies the way she plowed through opposing roller derby teams, pre-zompocalypse: with a grin and a yelled promise to feck you up!

Dead Island 2 will launch on April 21, 2023 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Epic Games Store. The game is available to preorder right now on the Xbox Store.
