Is Dead Island 2 coming to PS4? With the release of highly anticipated sequel inching ever closer like a zombie on the hunt, fans of the action RPG title are curious about the game’s availability on previous generation consoles. Since more of the recent AAA titles have been made exclusively for current generation systems like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, those that haven’t upgraded yet are understandably troubled about its possible exclusion on older systems.

Luckily, we’re here to ease your worries by letting you know of its playability on the PS4. Be sure to check out the Dead Island 2 map size, how long is Dead Island 2, how Dead Island 2 co-op works, and the Dead Island 2 characters list.

Is Dead Island 2 going to be on PS4?

Yes, Dead Island 2 will be released on the PS4 so previous gen players will still be able to enjoy the zombie action RPG title. While the game will have a slower loading times and a bit less power behind it, you will have access to all of the same content as current-gen consoles. It will similarly be available on other popular gaming systems, including PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. For all details on whether a Dead Island 2 Game Pass is on the cards, check out our guide.

The story of Dead Island 2 takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of Los Angeles where the area has been quarantined in order to contain a deadly and much stronger zombie outbreak than we saw in the original game. In order to navigate the deadly streets of these cities, you’ll be given the chance to choose from a certain number of playable characters and fight your way through the undead. There will also be special types of zombies that you’ll encounter throughout your journey much like another popular zombie title in Left 4 Dead.

With the Dead Island 2 PS4 release of the game still being more than a handful of weeks away, you’ll still be able to pre-order it to get the bonus content that comes with early purchases. Since progressing through a zombie-filled area can often be difficult, the content that you can get may be the difference between life and a gruesome death.
