The Dead Island 2 length is around 16-20 hours long for an average playthrough involving some side content and activities. If you explore more, complete more side quests, and find more collectibles then the game will take longer to beat, maxing out at about 30-35 hours.

This is how long it took us in our Dead Island 2 review and also comes courtesy of a WCCF Tech Dead Island 2 interview with Art Director Adam Olsson and Narrative Designer Lydia Cockerham.

In this interview, Adam Olsson notes that Dead Island 2 is about 20 hours long if you “take part in some secondary missions and other activities”. Olsson goes on to note that there are collectibles, a co-op mode, and that players can replay with a different character.
