  • Pulp Weapons Pack (Sledgehammer called Homewrecker and Pitchfork called Eye Opener)
  • Golden Weapons Pack (Sam B’s One Hit wonder Pistol and Abuela’s Ashes Mace
  • Character Pack 1 & 2
  • Expansion Pass

Is the Gold Edition of Dead Island 2 Worth it? – Answered

That solely depends on you. Weapons that you get to look cool, and the two expansions (DLCs) might be great, or they might not be great. It’s all about how much faith you have in the developers.

What is the Expansion Pass in Dead Island 2?

According to the Xbox Store, Expansion Pass should be granting you access to future two expansions (DLCs) for Dead Island 2. Quote: “featuring new missions, foes, weapons, abilities, and areas of HELL-A to explore.

Should I buy the Deluxe Edition of Dead Island 2, then?

The Deluxe Edition provides great value because the price difference between the default (standard) and the Deluxe Edition is minuscule. If you want to get in on the DLCs (Expansions) earlier (probably at a better cost since you would be an early adopter, but that remains to be seen) go ahead with the Gold one! If not, Deluxe should be great. Standard does not pay off compared to Deluxe, in my opinion.

That’s it for now, when more light gets shed on this matter we’ll make sure to update the article. In the meantime, feel free to explore our Dead Island 2 tag below. See you soon at Prima Games!
