And Cue the Music…

16:00 GMT 17 APRIL 2024: Dead Island 2’s second expansion story – SoLA – is out now on Xbox, PlayStation and on Epic Game Store and Steam from 22 April 2024.

A fantastic new trailer to accompany the launch can be found here

Set in the heart of LA, SoLA takes players into the ultimate Californian music festival where a psychedelic beat unleashes chaos, urning the mosh pit into a rotting crater of gore and releasing a malevolent presence to haunt the player.

New DLC Content
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 disembowelled intestines, allowing them to lash out at range. And the Clotter, an unsettling apex variant, 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 its heart.

New Legendary Weapons such as 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.
