Dead Island 2 Expansion Pass Release Date

Dead Island 2 was released on April 21st of 2023. Since then, many gamers have picked up the game and have completed the main story missions. Some gamers got the Gold Edition of Dead Island 2 which includes the expansion pass. Unfortunately, the expansion pass has not been released yet and is not available to play as of this writing.

For now, there is no set release date for the Dead Island 2 expansion pass. At the time of this writing, you cannot even buy the expansion pass separately. Usually, games with expansion passes allow you to pay for it ahead of time but for some reason, you cannot for Dead Island 2. This could mean that it might take a couple of months before the expansion pass is ready.

What Is Coming To The Dead Island 2 Expansion Pass

As far as we know, players will have to wait a couple of months before the Dead Island 2 expansion pass is ready. But from what we have seen so far, the wait will be well worth it for those who want more from the game. The description for the expansion pass promises that there will be a lot more coming to the game.

For example, there will be two new chapters for the main story included with the expansion pass. On top of the two new chapters, there will also be a lot more content included as well. New weapons, new enemies, new abilities, and even brand-new areas will be available. Considering everything that is coming to the expansion pass, it might be worth the wait.
