Dead Island 2’s DLC Road Map Has Been Revealed

Dead Island 2 has two chunks of DLC on the way and Deep Silver has revealed when we can expect them.

They’ve also shared the details of these two Dead Island 2 DLC drops. And while they’re not free, they should give zombie slayers some new places to clear out. So if you’re not done cracking zombie heads, here’s what you can expect.

The first DLC, Haus, arrives in Q4 2023, and takes place in a billionaire tech entrepreneur’s compound. It’s described as a “..techno-death cult with a healthy splash of debauchery and gore”, so you don’t have to guess who it’ll be skewering.

The second piece of DLC arrives in Q2 2024 and is dubbed L.A! SOLA Festival. It takes place, as the name suggests, at a music festival. Rave to the Grave would be a better title, yes. But that’s already been nabbed by the disappointing Return of the Living Dead 5.

The DLCs will be available as part of the game’s expansion pack which, in turn, included in some of the pricier editions of the game. You can also expect them to be available separately.

DLC aside, there are also alternate costumes available now for all the slayers. Some have to be purchased while some, such as the Till Dawn costumes are absolutely free. You can switch to these costumes after making your way to Emma’s mansion. Sadly, there are no skins that make your slayers look like zombies. But we’re sure at least a couple of PC modders are working on that.

If you’ve not played Dead Island 2, you can read our review to learn why you should wade into this zombie-bashing game. We’re dipping it into it on a regular basis. Let’s face it, killing zombies as a sweary Irish roller girl is never going to get old.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
