Xbox Game Pass Adds Dead Island which is great. Xbox game Pass Ultimate Subscribers can now start having fun with the Zombie-thumping action RPG Dead Island for free starting this weekend.
Alongside the reveal of the Dead Island 2 at Gamescom opening Night Live Last month, the first game to hit the shelves is actually the comically grotesque Zombies series that would be available free to play on Xbox for a limited time.
Xbox Game Pass Adds Dead Island
As stated by Microsoft Blog Post, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members get to play Dead Island Definitive edition entirely for free now until Monday, September 26 at 12a, PST / 3am EST / 8am BST / 6pm AEDT.
The game is joined by the hunting simulator 2. The two games have been made entirely free for the weekend as a part of the Xbox’s Free Play Days program, which offers the game pass and Gold subscribers new games to play every week.
How to get Dead Island on Xbox Game Pass
You can choose to download Dead Island for the weekend via your Xbox Series X|S or the Xbox one. Load up the store, navigate to the subscription tab, on the Xbox Live Gold tile, and then scroll down to the Free Play Days section. It is at this point that you would find the dead island ready and waiting.
You can also choose to download the game remotely via your PC. Head over to the Dead Island listing page on the Microsoft Store, and then sign in using your Xbox Account, and then click on the green “install to” button. A list of all consoles would be connected to your account and it would be thrown up, allowing you to remotely install the game to whichever one you want.
Dead Island Main Campaign
The Dead Island’s main campaign clocks in at around 20 hours, so you would have to dedicate a big chunk of your weekend if you would like to see it through. This might not be one of the best co-op games available, but it is gruesomely gung-ho melee violence and four-player co-op campaign are worth checking out with a couple of buddies. This is the definitive edition, also, so it includes all of dead Island’s previously released DLC.
By bashing in the heads of zombies across a tropical paradise might also put you in the mood for the game’s upcoming sequel, which has been set to shamble onto screens on February 3 next year. But you do not expect an entire do-over. In our hands-on session with Dead Island 2, also, we could not just button-mash our way right through the game.
