Want to get in on Dead Island 2 before everybody else? You’ll need a PS4, says Deep Silver. Turns out that the game’s upcoming beta test will be available on Sony’s latest console for 30 days before it is turned loose onto Xbox One and PC.
Of course, if you want to get into the beta in the first place, it’ll help if you’ve pre-ordered the game’s spin-off, Escape Dead Island. At this stage, publisher Deep Silver has not announced any other ways to get in, but we’re guessing there’s going to be at least another way – Escape Dead Island was from all accounts, pretty bad, so we’re hoping they’re not relying on it!
The studio’s got a little while to sort it all out – the date for the Dead Island 2 beta has not been confirmed yet, and we don’t know quite what’ll be in the beta test. The full game is due out in 2015, with Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager at the helm.
