Dead Island 2 is finally here! We’ve waited more than a decade, and more than a whole console generation for the game, but there’s going to be plenty to get into right away – even though Dead Island 2 won’t be an open-world game, there’s still plenty of stuff to explore in its recreation of LA. You’ll also get to play with six different characters, and the game supports co-op play. Digging a bit deeper, we already know there are a ton of Dead Island 2 weapons, ranging from hammers and axes to Carbine rifles and pistols, and you can also expect zombie-tastic boss fights, awesome melee combat, and an ingenious gore system that lets you strategically dismember zombies.
