The second story expansion for Dead Island 2, called SoLA, is now available for those that own the game on consoles and through the Epic Games Store.

Travel to the heart of LA and take in the sights and sounds of California's ultimate music festival. Just be sure to take care because a psychedelic beat will unleash chaos, turning mosh pits into "a rotting crater of gore and releasing a malevolent presence to haunt the player."

This expansion adds new story missions, a new location to explore, new enemies, and new weapons.

Dead Island 2 is expected to hit Steam on April 22, 2024.

SoLA Features:

New Story: A deadly virus sweeps through The Valley, turning its inhabitants into ravenous zombies as a chthonic rhythm calls from beyond: The Beat of the Autophage. Lured to the festival by an enigmatic warning message, players must explore SoLA’s ruins and put a stop to this otherworldly menace.

New Location: A visceral, gore-drenched music festival in LA echoing to the sound of The Beat which threatens to turn the living into zombies, and with the potential to be heard across the world.

New Enemies: Including the Whipper, a new apex variant enemy, driven mad with self-loathing by the Autophage. Their compulsion to self-mutilate has turned them into a horrific nightmare of disemboweled intestines, allowing them to lash out at range. Next up, the Clotter, an unsettling apex variant that can decompose into a revolting pile of gore, making it immune from damage in that form, and then reform elsewhere to continue the fight. As if that wasn’t enough, they are also capable of firing a powerful jet of putrid blood from its heart.

New Legendary Weapons: Introducing the Ripper - a deadly fusion of a baseball bat and circular saw, turning it into a percussive machine of dismemberment - and the Sawblade Launcher, a heavy weapon firing rotary sawblades; the perfect weapon for ranged decapitation and dismemberment.​
