Does Dead Island 2 support crossplay?

You can enjoy the game with friends, but there's a catch.

Dead Island 2 is a perfect fit to bite into with a friend or two because of its vast open world and dozens of multiple activities to get into plus the multiple characters you can play as, but the game would need to support crossplay if your friends play on different platforms.

Games set in zombie apocalypses have almost always had the option to cooperate with your friends. Whether it’s to complete one mission or a campaign or to survive together the longest as you can, the simple fact is that these types of titles are associated with enjoying them alongside your friends.

Considering the original game included a co-op option, where up to four players could buckle up together and scavenge through the zombie-infested island. it’s logical to think the sequel should allow for crossplay.

Does Dead Island 2 support crossplay?

Unfortunately, you’ll only be able to play Dead Island 2 alongside players who own the game on the same platform as you. This was confirmed by the end of February by the official Dead Island Twitter account, which announced that Dead Island 2 does not support cross-play.

As expected, this news was met with backlash from the community. Nowadays, it’s common for players to own different devices on which they enjoy the games, and these players have already filed their complaints via social media.

There is a possibility crossplay will be added to Dead Island 2 as time goes on. For now, however, you’ll have to slay zombies on your own or with other players who also play on the same device as you do.
