Can I join a game in the middle of a 1st playthrough if I'm just starting a 2nd playthrough?



  • Some of my friends are playing Dead Island, but they are hopelessly behind me in terms of story progression. Will I be able to still join their game if I'm in an earlier chapter of a 2nd playthrough and they are in a later chapter of a 1st playthrough?

    To put it simply, can I join a 1st playthrough chapter 5 game if my game is 2nd playthrough chapter 2?



  • I don't have enough reputation to down-vote kotekzot...yet. Yet, perhaps kotekzot is not wrong in a patch version preceding version 1.3.0.

    At least in the case of patch 1.3.0, completion does not determine whom that may be joined. Related: Attempting to join anyone whose progress does not match yours will generate prompts informing you of the discrepancy in progress, but you are still allowed to join.

    Comparison: This is unlike the Borderlands browser of public games, which only displays servers whose host's story progress match or precede the character that you currently have selected.
