Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios revealed that long anticipated zombie slaying saga Dead Island 2 (@deadislandgame) has GONE GOLD. Zombie slaying will now commence one week early on Friday, April 21st, 2023.

The ground breaking Dead Island franchise first hit the scene in 2011 with one of the most viewed videogame trailers of all time. The latest instalment, which was announced with a gloriously gory trailer during gamescom’s Opening Night Live event in 2022, takes players on a blood soaked, pulp voyage to escape Los Angeles, now nicknamed HELL-A, as it descends into zombie-infested chaos with all of the over the top action and dark humor that fans will be expecting.

Deep Silver will be revealing more gameplay and trailers for fans of the franchise to enjoy before they embark on their own fight for survival on 21st April 2023.

Dead Island 2 picks up the Dead Island and Escape Dead Island storyline several months after the events on the Banoi islands. The United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine which, for some, is a dream come true with a promise of a fresh start.

The city is in quarantine and the military have retreated. Bitten, infected, but more than just immune, you learn to harness the tainted powers running through your veins. Only you, and the handful of other swaggering assholes who happen to be resistant to the pathogen, hold the future of Los Angeles (and humanity), in the balance. You were born to this. As you uncover the truth behind the outbreak you’ll uncover the truth of who – or what – you are. Survive, evolve, save the world – just another day in LA!

Check out the special editions and bonus content available for Dead Island 2, including the Limited HELL-A Edition and the stunning “Amy” collector’s figurine. Pre-order now and get the Memories of Banoi Pack for free, featuring weapons, skills and perks that are a welcomed addition to any Zombie Slayer’s arsenal. The HELL-A Edition features an exclusive steelbook, Venice Beach map, DI2 pins and patch, 6 unique slayer tarot cards, expansion pass, and Pulp and Golden Weapons Packs.

Dead Island 2 comes out April 21st, 2023 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via the Epic Store.
