'Dead Island Definitive Edition' Is Free To Play This Weekend

'Dead Island Definitive Edition' Is Free To Play This Weekend

Sink your teeth into that.

Just so you know, Dead Island Definitive Edition and Hunting Simulator 2 are free to play this weekend through Xbox Free Play Days. Tidy.

The weather has switched and the evenings are gradually getting darker and darker as we settle into autumn here in the northern hemisphere. What better way to toast your icy toes than dipping into Dead Island? Set on the fictional island of Banoi, the player can choose one of the four playable protagonists to survive the terror on the island as almost all of the people have succumbed to a strange infection. Each of the characters possess a special ability that improves their attacks on the infected, and they attempt to escape with the others who appear to be immune to the plague, though some might not be being truthful about their motivations.

This is also a fabulous opportunity to get to grips with Dead Island before the second entry into the survival horror series arrives. While the quartet of characters in Dead Island were unaffected by the variant of Kuru, this isn't the case in the sequel. The plague has landed on American soil and has ravaged the city of Los Angeles, thusly renamed HELL-A. "Bitten, infected, but more than just immune, you learn to harness the tainted powers running through your veins. Only you, and the handful of other swaggering assholes who happen to be resistant to the pathogen, hold the future of Los Angeles (and humanity) in the balance," said developer Deep Silver. "As you uncover the truth behind the outbreak you'll uncover the truth of who - or what - you are."
