Dead Island 2: Day One Edition box art, release date and screenshots surface on Amazon

Dead Island 2, arguably one of the most anticipated games, is locked behind the fiery doors of development hell. The first game went offline more than a decade ago, and Zombie Slayer fans have been dying for a sequel ever since. Well, they are lucky. Dead Island 2: Day One Edition’s cover, in-game photos, and 2023 release date were found on Amazon. New information has been removed, but we made sure to get images and additional information for you.

Dead Island 2 will land at the same time, according to information on the Amazon page Xbox and game station console. However, the current version of the game does not yet have a web page. The story follows an elite squad that is immune to infection, which means we’ll see 8-player co-op when the game ends. The full summary is as follows:

“Months after Barnoy, the U.S. military has put the Golden State under full quarantine. Now a no-go zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for traitors. Adventure-seeking, Glory and new beginnings. Combining immersive melee, action and role-playing elements of the classic Dead Island, Dead Island 2 features insane, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters that take players from the iconic The Golden Gate leads to the famous waterfront boardwalk in Venice Beach, Southern California.”

Players must craft comical weapons just like the first game to defeat the seemingly never-ending tribes that plague the West Coast. The Bloody Adventures of Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios is said to launch on February 3rd, 2023 (or at least that’s what was on the list earlier today before suddenly disappearing). Hopefully this date will hold/reappear as we head into the new year.
