Dead Island 2 DLC SoLA Coming April 17

Stage dive into the heart of SoLA, the ultimate Californian music festival, built upon ancient grounds in new Dead Island 2 DLC

Stalking the pulsating heart of LA's final rave is a psychedelic beat that has unleashed total chaos, leaving nothing but a rotting crater of gore and a malevolent presence haunting the shadows. Something is out there and it’s still hungry.

In case you missed them, take a look at our Dead Island 2 review and Dead Island 2 Haus review.

Dead Island 2’s second expansion story – SoLA – will be releasing on Xbox and PlayStation – and on Epic Game Store - 17 April 2024.

The new Dead Island 2 DLC SoLA will contain the following

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 the heart of LA (or HELL-A, as we like to call it) 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 disembowelled intestines, allowing them to lash out at range. And Clotter, another new unsettling apex zombie, 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. Capable of firing a powerful jet of putrid blood from their heart.

New Legendary Weapons

Such as the Ripper: a deadly fusion of a baseball bat and circular saw into a percussive machine of dismemberment. And the Sawblade Launcher: a heavy weapon firing rotary sawblades; the perfect weapon for ranged decapitation and dismemberment.

The presentation sure is great, but that alone cannot save this experience for me as the core gameplay loop left me unsatisfied most of the time.
