It's been a good week for Xbox Game Pass with five games added to the service, and one of them was a total surprise in the form of Dead Island 2! The game wasn't announced ahead of time, but landed on XGP this past Thursday.

So, we know it's early days, but we're interested to hear how you've been getting on with the latest entry in this popular series. Dead Island 2 was notorious for being stuck in development hell for multiple years (pretty much a decade in fact), but the final product seemed to get a fairly good reception when it arrived in April of 2023.

Here at Pure Xbox, we gave the game a "Good" 7/10 rating and concluded it was "definitely worth a play if you're looking for a lighthearted zombie romp on Xbox", and there's definitely the case now that it's on Game Pass. But what about you? Have you been enjoying it so far, or has it let you down compared to past entries in the series?
