Dead Island 2 developers’ Deep Silver has announced that a Beta will be available on the Xbox One console after a period of 30 days exclusivity to the rival console Playstation 4! The only current way to guarantee access is through a copy of the Xbox360 spin-off “Escape Dead Island”, but other methods are sure to be available closer to its launch.
Dead Island 2 picks up the Dead Island and Escape Dead Island storyline several months after the events on the Banoi islands. The United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine which, for some, is a dream come true with a promise of a fresh start. California’s newfound bloody paradise is an action-packed playground featuring the acclaimed, seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a truly social, new-gen multiplayer experience.
No release date has yet been announced for the Beta, but the full game will launch in the spring of 2015.
