How To Remove HUD in Dead Island and Its Definitive Edition

Dead Island, the action RPG throwing you into a gruesome zombie outbreak, officially launched in 2011 and gathered a cult following in a very short time.

As you already know, the game introduced its definitive edition in 2016 with visual improvements, technical fixes, and all DLC included.

But one thing missing in the original version and unfortunately also absent in the Dead Island Definitive Edition is the option to toggle on/off HUD by choice.
