Dead Island 2 expansion pass price & what’s included

Here’s the deal with the Dead Island 2 expansion pass

Recommended Videos

As a “AAA” video game, Dead Island 2 boasts fancy graphics and many modern bells and whistles. It also, of course, features an expansion pass at launch. The expansion pass appears to resemble other “season pass” deals you see with modern video games. That said, you’re still wise to look into what exactly included is in this pack before dropping cash on it. Here are the details.

How much does the Dead Island 2 expansion pass cost?

So… weirdly, we don’t know.

As of writing, the Dead Island 2 expansion pass is only bundled with the Gold Edition of the game. The price of this edition varies by platform, but Gold Edition consistently costs $20 more than the base game. In other words, we can expect the expansion pass’ value to be just that: $20.

We can virtually guaranteed that Deep Silver will sell the expansion pass standalone later. The alternative is just too silly to even consider. Still, we’ll have to wait for official confirmation of the expansion pass’ price point.

What is included with the Dead Island 2 expansion pass?

We don’t exactly know the answer to this one, either. The official description of the expansion pass includes the following:

“Embark on two brand new chapters of the main story, coming after release, featuring new missions, foes, weapons, abilities and areas of HELL-A to explore.”

Without more information to read, we can’t tell you if the new story chapters are substantial expansions or just small side attractions. In other words, it’s up to you to decide if the expansion pass is worth the cost. Do you have faith that you’ll feel satisfied with these extra Dead Island 2 missions, or would you prefer to wait until reviews come out for them? Pick the approach that you feel most comfortable with.
