When Dead Island 2 arrives on April 21, it will be available on a multitude of platforms, from the current-gen to the last-gen and even PC, leaving many to ponder the possibility of cross-play. For those with friends scattered across different systems, here is a complete overview of the cooperation and cross-play options in Dead Island 2.
Will Cross-Play Feature in Dead Island 2?
The answer to this burning question is succinct yet not quite satisfying: Dead Island 2 cannot support cross-play between distinct console systems, implying that those gaming on PlayStation will not be able to join forces with those playing on Xbox or PC, and vice versa. Yet, it is possible for those enjoying different editions of the same ecosystem to play together. Players of PS4 and PS5 can work in tandem, as can gamers of Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. And in case you were wondering, it lacks cross-save as well, so you’ll have to settle on one platform while you hack and slash your way through Los Angeles.
