Dead Island 2 has finally been released, after a long and difficult development process. The game is set in California, 10 years after the events of Dead Island: Riptide, and follows the story of a group of survivors known as the Slayers. In this article, we will delve into the story of Dead Island 2 and explain the ending, which sets up the next installment in the series, Dead Island 3.

The Slayers’ Story

The game begins with the Slayers on an evacuation flight, which is shot down when a zombie is found on board. The group is bitten and infected, but they discover they are immune with some side effects. They meet Dr. Reuben Reed of the CDC, who explains that they are immune to the zombie virus and offers to harness their immunity to create a cure.

Searching for a Cure

The Slayers, along with Reed, begin their mission to create a cure in a world overrun by zombies. They encounter Lola Conrad and her group of survivors, who have similar abilities. The group teams up, and together they attempt to find a way to create a cure using their immunity.

Revealing the Truth

However, as they get closer to creating the cure, Reed’s true intentions are revealed. He caused the zombie outbreak to locate the Newman beings, who carry the autophage, a virus that could be used to create a cure for all diseases. With the Slayers’ immunity being linked to the autophage, Reed believes he can create a cure for all diseases with their blood.

The Conclusion

The game ends with the Slayers fighting and killing Reed while searching for Tisha, who carries the cure. However, the search is not over, and the game ends on a cliffhanger, with the Slayers and Lola’s group on a mission to find Tisha and the cure. This sets up the next installment in the series, Dead Island 3.
