One Hell-a of a good idea…

16:00 GMT 13 Feb 2024 Dead Island 2 – the multimillion copy selling first-person action RPG – set in a hellish vision of LA (or HELL-A, as we like to call it) is coming to Steam in two months on Monday 22 April. 
With the city in quarantine thanks to a deadly virus, it’s down to the somehow immune slayer to embark on an epic pulp journey, meet a crazy cast of characters and explore well-known locations such as Beverly Hills, Venice Beach and Santa Monica to uncover the truth behind the outbreak and who or what they are turned into.
To mark this rather splendid piece of news, you can get Dead Island Riptide – Definitive Edition for free forever in the  next 48 hrs (until 14:00 GMT on Thursday 15 Feb) as well as offering a 75% discount on Dead Island: Retro Revenge.

Killing zombies has never been so much fun and gamers will truly see and feel their slays thanks to Dambuster’s F.L.E.S.H. (Fully Locational Evisceration System for Humanoids) system, which makes dismemberment gratifyingly and gloriously gory.
To assist in this carnage players can equip a plethora of weapons, mods and skills to craft and equip, allowing full personalisation and crazy builds.
Facing them are a multitude of distinct zombie types, each with their own mutations, attacks and LA-themed variations.
If that’s not enough, you can share the fun with your mates - and put the laughter into zombie slaughter-  with the three player coop mode
Dead Island 2 is also available for both Xbox and PlayStation systems.
