Deep Silver and Volition unveil news that Santo Ileso is set to get bigger and better with three major releases for Expansion Pass holders over the coming months, and two free new districts, three more quality-of-life updates and a Dead Island-2-inspired cosmetic pack for all players.
Leading the charge is the free Dead Island 2 Pack on April 11. HELL-A meets the Weird West in this free content inspired by Deep Silver’s forthcoming zombie slay-‘em up. Players can dress their boss with items from reckless antihero Jacob or quick-witted athlete Amy. They can also apply shock and awe with a new weapon, stagger with swagger with a new emote, and evoke bitey beachside memories with an iconic pink flamingo hat and Carver the Shark statue for their HQ.
After this, the game’s biggest free update is scheduled for May with Sunshine Springs, a brand-new district added to Santo Ileso, alongside a swathe of quality-of-life changes (such as overhauled combat, Selfie Mode and more) and improvements. On the same day, Expansion Pass holders get The Heist & The Hazardous, three new story missions set in Sunshine Springs as the Saints take on an ambitious heist as payback for being double-crossed by a famous actor …
The second Expansion Pass content hits in July; Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus, a new solo game mode that we will leave up to your imagination – for now. Plus, this will also add another free quality-of-life upgrade and new features being added.
Finally, August sees the release of the third, final and largest pack for the Expansion Pass. Keep an eye on our social channels for more news closer to the date. August will also see a second new district expansion and quality of life update free for all players.
