Released all the way back in 2014, the original Dead Island was quite the interesting take on the then fashionable zombie shooting gameplay, with a lot of insane mechanisms and also quite the hefty slab of cheese. Then, pretty soon after its release, a sequel was announced only to disappear and… come back from the dead again. So let’s lay out Dead Island 2 co-op multiplayer and see what we know.
I think we can all agree that while going solo on a mission to kill zombies and survive is definitely okay, there’s way more fun to be had when there’s a group of tight-knit friends that can work great cooperating with each other. That’s why we’re keeping our fingers crossed that not only will the new Dead Island game feature the mode, but it’s going to be as good as the original! High hopes, right?
So, continue reading to find out everything about Dead Island 2 co-op multiplayer and if you and your friends will be allowed to go zombie hunting together, again, very soon.
Dead Island 2 co-op multiplayer explained
It has been confirmed, all the way back in the original 2014 announcement, that Dead Island 2 will indeed feature co-op up to eight players simultaneously, with players allowed to “jump in and out”.
But, so many years have passed since then and with the recent confirmation that the zombie action game is slated for a February 2023 release, we cannot be 100% sure, but there’s definitely hope that the gameplay modes from the original announcement have been left intact, we’d be definitely be perplexed if they would leave it out!
