Dead Island 2 Expansion Pass

You might want to know the details of the Expansion Pass of Dead Island 2.

Dead Island 2 is preparing the sunny California with the zombie apocalypse. After the hit prequel to the 2011 “Dead Island,” the zombies have taken their show on the road to the West Coast.

As a survivor, you will scavenge for supplies, craft weapons and avoid becoming the next meal for the walking dead. However, Devs have ensured to make you blood-sweat as the open-world map is massive and filled with numerous hazards and challenges.

The game promises to bring some humor and sarcasm to lighten the mood during intense zombie battles. However, the game’s development has been a rocky road, with several delays and changes in development studios. The original developer, Techland, left the project and was handed over to Yager Development, which Dambuster Studios then replaced.

Despite the turbulent development history, fans of the zombie genre are eagerly anticipating the game’s release. Dead Island 2 will feature a brand new storyline, and players can expect to explore a vibrant and diverse world that ranges from dense cityscapes to idyllic beaches.

As the release date is close, the fans are already thinking about the game’s post-launch content. Similar to its cousin, Dying Light, the game is expected to receive ongoing support in the form of an Expansion Pass. This Pass promises to add even more content to the already-packed game, including new challenges and areas to explore. Let’s get into the depth of it.

What is the Expansion Pass in Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 Expansion Pass

The Gold Edition of Dead Island 2 includes this Expansion Pass. It is the perfect option for players who want to experience everything the game has to offer. This Pass is packed with a wealth of new content, including two additional chapters of the main story. Moreover, these chapters will feature the Pulp Weapons pack, the Golden Weapons pack, two Character packs, and areas of Los Angeles to explore. However, this Pass will be released after the main game’s launch.

How To Get The Expansion Pass

Well, it can be a bit confusing. The Expansion Pass can be purchased through various online marketplaces, including the game’s official website, Steam, and the Microsoft Store. It’s also worth noting that the Expansion Pass is not included in the game’s Deluxe Edition. This means if you want all the content, you’ll need to buy it separately.

Talking about the price, it is a bit steep, ranging from $20 to $30 more than the base game. While currently, the Expansion Pass is only accessible via the Gold Edition; it’s likely that this method of distribution will change in the future.

Most games with downloadable content eventually offer an Expansion Pass sold separately alongside the base game. Doing so encourages players to upgrade without having to purchase a whole new edition of the game. This option may cost slightly more than buying the bundle, but it’s a convenient way to access new content.

So, prepare for a thrilling, humorous, and gory experience as you fight for survival in the zombie-infested California. Dead Island 2 is set to release on April 21st, 2023, for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
