Here's where to pre-order Dead Island 2

The best deals on each edition of and where to pre-order Dead Island 2

After a long time coming, Dead Island 2 is finally happening. The game has been re-revealed and will be released on 28th April 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. Although the Dead Island 2 release date has been slightly delayed, it won't be too long until you can to get your hands on this long-awaited sequel for the Dead Island franchise.

Dead Island 2 is the sequel to the original Dead Island released way back in 2011, and is a role-playing game in which you kill a bunch of zombies in increasingly devastating ways, utilising a variety of weapons and tools at your disposal, either alone or with friends.

Despite how many zombie games there may have been over the years since the original game, Dead Island 2 is arguably one of the most anticipated, particularly in regards to the time between its announcement and release. On this page, we’ve prepped this handy guide to list the best places and deals for Dead Island 2 pre-orders, before its launch early next year.
