Is Dead Island 2 playable in split screen?
Sadly, Dead Island 2 is not playable in split screen and features no local cooperative gameplay features, meaning you and a friend will have to purchase a copy each to join up with each other online and play through the game.
The game supports a total of four players in an online coop session, meaning you can still play with friends throughout the whole experience.
The original Dead Island also didn't feature split screen and local cooperative play, and considering how more and more games have dropped support for the feature over the years, it's unlikely Dead Island 2 will get cooperative split-screen play.
For PC players, you may be in luck though, as mods have added local split screen to the original game since release, meaning the same could happen for the sequel. However, you will likely have to wait a while for someone to go through with it, unless you want to take up the responsibility and make the mod yourself.
