After Dying Light 2 was already cut on the market in Germany, the astonishment should be limited that it is with Dead Island 2 behaves similarly. However, we now have confirmation that the German version of the second part has received USK 18 approval and even largely corresponds to the international version, but there will still be cuts.
The cuts of the USK 18 version of Dead Island 2
This content has been removed: If you have defeated a zombie in Dead Island 2, you can no longer interact with the bodies of the undead in the German USK version. The international version, on the other hand, makes it possible to remove limbs from the dead even after their death, for example. As a result, you can only play matchmaking with those who also have the German version installed.
According to the publisher Plaion (formerly Koch Media), there will be no further cuts in the USK version. Means, with Dead Island 2 you can expect an extremely bloody game in Germany that relies on plenty of gore. As is typical for the series, it is possible to cut off parts of the body of living zombies with sharp weapons. The extremely bloody death animations are also included in this country.
