Deep Silver has revealed Dead Island 2 will also be heading to PC and Xbox One, joining the previously confirmed PS4 version announced by Sony.
While not an exclusive for Sony as we had originally understood, the PS4 edition still appears to be the definitive version – including certain exclusives, such as a PS4-only pre-release beta period, an additional playable character and an extra level.
