Will Dead Island 2 Be On Steam?

Are you curious to know if Dead Island 2 is available on Steam? You're not alone! As one of the most highly anticipated zombie hack-and-slash games from developer Dambuster Studios, Dead Island 2 has (naturally) garnered much attention from gamers worldwide. However, while some players may assume Dead Island 2 will be on Steam, others aren't convinced. But don't worry because we have you covered with the latest updates and news regarding Dead Island 2's release, whether you're a die-hard zombie-slaying veteran or a newcomer to the franchise.

Will Dead Island 2 Be Released On Steam Store?

Unfortunately, it has been confirmed that Dead Island 2 will not be released on Steam. Instead, the game will be an Epic Games Store exclusive, meaning that it will only be available for purchase and play on that platform. At least, this seems to be the case right now. This decision has come as a surprise to many fans who were eagerly waiting for the game to be released on Steam, which is one of the most popular gaming platforms.

This news may also be disappointing for some fans, but keeping an open mind is important. Despite launching as an Epic Games Store-exclusive title, Dead Island 2 is still expected to offer a thrilling zombie-slaying experience when it releases on 21 April 2023 for the PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC platforms. Speaking of which, if you're looking forward to playing the game on your PC, you may be curious about the Dead Island 2 PC system requirements.

This latest entry to the Dead Island video game series promises to deliver a thrilling combination of horror, humor, and intense zombie-slaying action thanks to its realistic melee combat sandbox. According to the game's official website, players can also expect to embark on an epic first-person ARPG adventure set in a new playground - a dark, twisted vision of Los Angeles, aptly named "HELL-A." The game features a stylish and vibrant environment, with plenty of gore-drenched locations and six larger-than-life playable characters called "Slayers," each with their own personalities and combat styles.
