If you want to find out what Dead Island 2 has to offer, we recommend the new IGN video released on April 10th, showing the first 11 minutes of the game. The video is linked above, but it’s important to note that the game’s brutality means it’s only suitable for those over 18 years old.


The first 11 minutes


The video begins with a small cutscene, where we see flames everywhere and then a knife in our stomach, which we immediately remove.

After patching ourselves up, we try to escape from the plane full of corpses. Many of the bodies are mutilated and blood is everywhere, so this game is really not for children or those with weak nerves.

Once we finally find a way out of the plane, the first thing we see is a flare from other survivors, which we then try to locate. Along the way, we find a knife, which we immediately pick up.

When we hear other people, the first thing they do is try to kill us, but thankfully, it’s just because of a fright. It’s a group of three people, one of them is apparently quite famous and there with her manager, and the third person has lost their hearing and seems to be injured.

You can see the desperation, especially in the woman, which is understandable given the amount of death corpses around them. We hear a loud breathing behind us, a man who has been hit by a heavy piece of metal, which the group then tries to lift, but unfortunately without success. A female person is also lying next to him, but she is unconscious.

After a threatening noise is heard, the group immediately flees, leaving the injured and us behind. The only thing we get from them is the woman’s address.

Then we encounter our first zombie, which tries to bite us. After this zombie, more come towards us. During this fight, you can immediately see the brutality of the game, with skulls being crushed and blood spraying everywhere.

During this battle, we also find a new weapon, a kind of sledgehammer, which causes great damage to the zombies.

The horde is ultimately stopped as we close off the access point where the zombies are coming from and can turn our attention back to the two injured individuals.

After giving the man some water, the woman seems to be waking up as well. Unfortunately, she is not grateful for the water as she has turned into a zombie and thanks us by biting into our arm.

As a result, she kills the already badly injured man, and in the end, we kill her.

After the bite, we feel very disoriented and try to run to the address the star has written down for us.

Towards the end, we see New York, which is largely on fire, and zombies chasing after us.

So in these 11 minutes, we already have a pretty good idea of where the game is leading us, which is to a New York that will not make life easy for us. Your goal will be to uncover the truth behind the zombie outbreak and of course, to survive.

Problems with the USK version


When purchasing Dead Island 2, you need to be careful if you buy the USK version of the game. The splatter will be reduced slightly, but only for already dead zombies, so for example, you won’t be able to chop off their arms after they’re dead. Otherwise, the game is exactly identical.

This applies not only to people who play the USK version but also to those who play co-op with them, so if one of you in co-op has the USK version, it applies to both of you.

In multiplayer, the USK and international versions are separated.

If you want to bypass this, you need to be careful when buying to ensure you get the PEGI version, which has no limitations.
