If you're questioning how long is Dead Island 2, then you may be short on time and trying to decide if you can fit it in with your busy schedule, or you could be looking at the purchase price and debating whether you'll get the right amount of value from it if you decide to pick it up. It's fair to say that Dead Island 2 is big, which may or may not be good news depending on your viewpoint, but although there's a lot that you can do beyond the campaign it won't take you too long to complete the main feature. If you want to know how long it will take to beat Dead Island 2, then all of the considerations are broken down for you below.
How long to beat Dead Island 2?
How long it will take you to beat Dead Island 2 will depend on whether you just want to complete the main campaign, or see everything that Hell-A has to offer. If you solely focus on the 24 story quests and avoid many distractions, then you should be able to roll the credits after around 15 hours. On top of that, there are 33 side quests and 15 Lost & Found quests, which will probably take you another 10 to 15 hours depending on how many you cleared during the campaign, and these are definitely worth completing as they'll get you some of the best Dead Island 2 weapons available. If you want to be a 100% completionist then there are also 84 challenges to beat, which could take you considerably longer as some have huge goals, such as Hollywood Rich List that requires you to receive (but not hold) a total of $1,000,000 in cash, though you can speed that up by buying and selling weapons with Traders.
To summarise – Dead Island 2 is around 25 to 30 hours long if you want to complete all of the story and side quests, and significantly longer if you decide to beat every challenge for 100% completion.
