Dead Island 2 Brings Something A Little Exotic With Ryan As A Slayer

Dead Island

The next slayer coming to us for Dead Island 2 is shown off while bringing a heart of gold to the Dead Island universe

One more slayer is on the case for Dead Island 2 with the slow roll of the team flowing out before April 28th when the game hits the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. This time with another Slayer that we could easily see out there in Hell-A with Dambuster Studios adding in an exotic dancer into the mix. Yes, that firefighter shirt that Ryan is wearing is not an official one but still something to take note of. Ryan will, at least, add in some dry humor into the mix of Dead Island 2 along with all of the other oddness that the IP has been known for since it originally hit the streets. It has been the driving force for so many other titles like it.

All in all, though, what we get to see here for Ryan in Dead Island 2 does not show off the skills that Ryan will have too. One will allow for some health recovery in the field by knocking down some of the undead out there. Add in the fact that Ryan also gets some Force bonuses when blocking and dodging out there too. This feels like it is to link into Ryan's skills with dancing out there and trying to shift it all back to the dead. That is how it all reads to me while the new video for Dead Island 2 shows it all flow about the same as all of the other characters out there. This is just the explanation we are getting for now.

Dead Island 2 — Meet The Slayers: Ryan

Meet Ryan, our Slayer with rock-solid abs and a heart of gold.

There’s much more to this exotic dancer than rippling pecs. Ryan has a stubborn streak a mile wide, pessimistic sarcasm as dry as the Sahara, and an indomitable heart. He’s on a mission to get back to his little brother, left behind in Fresno before the outbreak, and nothing — alive or dead — is going to stop him from getting home.

Dead Island 2 comes out on April 28th, 2023 launching for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
