Dead Island 2 is a RPG video game that was developed by Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, YAGER, Sumo Digital, and Free Radical Design, and published by Deep Silver on April 28, 2023. In order to be released in Germany and avoid being indexed like this first game, the violence had to be marginally toned down.


Germany censorship[]

  • Enemies cannot be further dismembered after death.[1]

Where to find it uncensored[]

Every other country has it uncensored. However, during a multiplayer game involving players from different regions, if one player is using the slightly censored German version, then the dismemberment restriction will be equally applied to all players.[2]And lastly, the PC version is uncensored in Germany with a uncut patch.
