The primary story enlargement for Dead Island 2 is popping out in just some weeks, with Dambuster Studio and writer Plaion confirming that Haus will launch on 2nd November.
Haus will whisk gamers off to Malibu as a brand new location surrounding LA to research a mysterious cult in a “surreal, psycho-horror dreamscape”. It sounds fairly wild and trippy, and it’s all been caused by a secret billionaire’s techno-death cult. “Haus is a paragon of a new future, as prophesied by their enigmatic leader Konstantin,” the blurb tells us, promising to push the boundaries of morality as you delve right into a labyrinthine mess of biomes with uncommon structure.
Make of all that what you’ll, however this DLC might be an all-new story within the totally daft Dead Island universe. There might be new weapons and eight new ability playing cards to earn, together with:
- Ok-ROSSBOW – crafted for precision and lethality, unleash devastating long-range firepower and explode zombified brains with ease
- Hog Roaster – the last word ticket to visceral slaying while you concurrently butcher and BBQ zombies
- Dead Islands – to take the load off your shoulders while you smash the undead enemies into oblivion
Dambuster can also be engaged on a second Dead Island 2 story enlargement that is named SOLA Competition, anticipated to return out in second quarter of 2024.
After near a decade of stop-start growth, Dead Island 2 lastly launched again in April throughout PS5, Xbox Collection X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC. And you already know what? It’s a reasonably good sport! No, it’s not revolutionising the zombie shooter, and it got here with sure limits to the open world, nevertheless it’s some good, foolish zombie smashing enjoyable. In excellent news for Plaion, the sport acquired off to a stable begin on the tills, promoting greater than one million copies in the first few days after launch.
In our Dead Island 2 review, I mentioned, “Dead Island 2 does a great job of reanimating this dormant zombie-battling series, with the gore-filled combat and excessive weaponry that goes well with the oversaturated LA setting. It’s an enjoyable romp, but at the same time, ironically feels like it’s playing it safe.”
