“For players of the USK version, once the zombies are chopped up, crushed to a pulp or flambéed, they can no longer damage them – and why should they? After all, there are enough zombies roaming around just waiting to be dismantled “, adds Deep Silver to the age rating of Dead Island 2 (buy now ) in Germany. In co-op sessions, both players of the USK version and the international version can go zombie hunting together. However: For the duration of the session, no further damage can be added to the undead that have already been defeated, neither in the USK nor in the international version. Another dismemberment is therefore not possible once the zombie has died.
Players of the international version will receive a notification that the USK version is activated in a co-op session with a user of the USK version. With the public matchmaking system, however, USK players can only embark on the adventure with other USK players. “In turn, players on the international version will be randomly matched with other international players. International version specifically refers to the PEGI and all other internationally released versions of the game,” writes Deep Silver. A limited steel book of Dead Island 2 will soon be available for pre-order from selected retailers to let. The zombie action comes to PC, Xbox and PlayStation.
