The highly-anticipated sequel to Dead Island is here now with Dead Island 2! Jump straight into HELL-A and survive the horrors as one of the few people that are resistant to the pathogen. You, and only a handful of survivors left, are what's left of the City of Angels.

Bash Some Brains In!

Los Angeles has been turned into a gory, bloody mess. Survive the apocalypse in this new take on the iconic City of Angels! With various landscapes and iconic locations, immerse yourself in the apocalyptic setting of one of the best cities in the world.

Be the Ultimate Zombie Slayer

Take control of six Slayers and jump into HELL-A to survive the apocalypse. Build your Slayer as you wish, experiment with the game's brand-new skill system, and re-spec instantly to try out new and whackier builds. How will you choose to defeat the zombie threat?

Zombie Infestation

Survive against some of Dead Island's fiercest zombies yet with HELL-A's inhabitants. Deal with various zombie types, all of which have unique mutations, attacks, and visual variants. Use your weaponry to defeat some of the harshest zombies to date, dismember them, and turn the City of Angels into your personal playground.

A Cinematic Co-op Adventure

"Refreshingly brainless and made with a lot of heart, Dead Island 2's repetitive quest design and disappointing conclusion don't stop it from being a whale of a time."

Its been a long time coming. I remember when it was first announced and now that its out I'm a very happy gamer! The gore system is unlike anything I've ever seen in my thirty plus years of gaming. You can literally see their insides! You can literally pulverize them down to the bone. The combat is fun. The story is a bit light but it doesn't really matter as you have so much fun smashing in zombies' heads and everything else (arms, legs, back, etc) If you like zombie apocalypse games this is a must have. Its the crème de la crème of zombie games.

This game is awesome, love it, I was waiting for a new dead island game for so long. I remember the days me and my friends used to party up and just have fun killing zoombies, there was so much laughter and funny moments. I missed this feeling, game is great!
