Dead Island 2 will let you talk to your zombies using Amazon Alexa

When Dead Island 2 launches, you’ll be able to fire off voice commands to distract hordes of zombies with the power of Alexa Game Control.

In fact, you’ll be able to do a lot more than that, and you don’t even need an Amazon Echo device. Just buy a copy of Dead Island 2, put on a headset with a built-in mic, and you’re good to go. There’s no need for a wake word either, which is great news, as prefacing everything with “Alexa” would get too boring, too fast.

Amazon announced (opens in new tab) its upcoming game control feature during the opening night of Gamescom 2022. It will allow PC and console gamers to use voice commands to trigger in-game actions. In the case of Dead Island 2, this will include things like “where is the nearest workbench” to find the aforementioned workbench; “switch to my best weapon” which is equally self-explanatory; and “hey zombie” to lure the staggering hordes.
