The first of two expansions for Dead Island 2 has now launched on PS5 and PS4, titled Haus. Featuring a new storyline, location, weapons, and skill cards, it sees your character let loose in a "surreal, psycho-horror dreamscape" inside a big Malibu villa. Check out the launch trailer above.

The DLC is priced at £9.99 / $12.99 standalone, or you can opt for the Expansion Pass for £24.99 / $29.99 to guarantee yourself access to the second expansion. Upon purchase of the latter, you also get Red's Demise Katana.

The story setup for the cult-themed Haus is as follows: "A secret billionaire’s techno-death cult fights for survival amidst the Zompocalypse." It continues: "The Kult are paragons of a new future, shown to them by their enigmatic leader and prophet - Konstantin. Explore their sinister and debaucherous world as you navigate the cult’s twisted ideology." Inside the manor, you'll find new weapons like the K-ROSSBOW, Hog Roaster, and Dead Islands. You can also customise your build with eight new Skill Cards.

First impressions of the Haus DLC — at least on the game's Reddit page — seem to be very positive, so this seems like an expansion that fans of the base game should look into. Are you going to? Let us know in the comments below.
