Dead Island 2 Achievements Revealed Ahead of Launch
Dead Island 2 is ten years in the making, but it’s almost here. It was a decade ago that the first trailer for Dead Island 2 dropped, but owing to some development woes, the project was passed from pillar to post for the longest time. Now, the launch of the follow-up title is just days away, and a full list of the Dead Island 2 achievements has dropped online.
For completionists, there’s nothing more important than finding out every challenge, goal, and achievement or trophy-based target in a new game. There are some sizeable challenges in store with Dead Island 2, but fortunately, every single achievement on the list is seriously doable.
Slay Zombies, Unlock Dead Island 2 Trophies

If there are any Dead Island 2 achievements or trophies that may irritate completionists, it’s the cooperative-based ones. Not everyone wants to play the game with other slayers, so that could be a blocker to landing 100% completion or securing the Platinum for Dead Island 2.
Dead Island 2 launches on April 21st, following a bizarre set of circumstances whereupon the game was brought forward by one week rather than being delayed, which is the norm these days.
From the Writer:
I’m super excited for Dead Island 2 – I got to play a lengthy demo at WASD in London on the 31st of March, and it plays so well, it’s unreal. It’s slower-paced than some modern zombie-slaying titles, like Dying Light 2, but combat is dramatically satisfying, it’s really pleasing on the eye, and there’s more humour weaved into the game than you can shake a stick at. I was also happy to learn it’s instantly recognisable as a Dead Island game.
