Dead Island 2 Coming to Steam on April 22

dead island 2

Dead Island 2 is one of the most entertaining and visceral zombie-slaying titles money can buy. It was released in April 2023 to an extremely positive reception after being trapped in a delayed development cycle that lasted more than a decade. It’s a gory, high-octane, semi-open-world game bursting with violent action, kooky characters, and unhinged, intriguing storylines.

And on April 22, it’s coming to Steam.

Dead Island, Steam-Style

Dead Island 2’s Steam release promises to bring the zombie-slashing epic to a new market, which is fantastic for Dambuster, the game’s developer. In November, the game’s first expansion was released – Haus – and days before the game hits the Steam storefront, the second expansion, named SoLA, will launch to an eager reception.

There’s nothing overly complex about Dead Island 2. If you want to slay zombies in the most imaginative, brutal ways while gallivanting around with friends and a beautifully detailed map, this is a game you should consider picking up. It recently went live on Xbox Game Pass, which means if you’re a subscriber, you can soak up everything the base game offers for no extra cost.

Dead Island 2 can be wishlisted now on Steam, and that includes the various editions of the game that were available when it launched early in 2023:

  • Standard Edition
  • Deluxe Edition
  • Gold Edition

And if you want to dabble in the expansions, consider picking up the Expansion Pass to save a little moolah.
