Dead Island 2 dlc drops
>This is not a infection of a new microbial life form
>This is a malign alien entity like The Thing but capable of infecting via THOUGHT
>For over a thousand years has been using media like music to rearrange the human genome to activate autophage mutation
>Hybrids were meant to be hunters rounding people up to be turned into raw materials for the flesh soup living doorways to allow the entity to access and consume the world but the human spirit too stronk
>"It wasn't a countdown to extinction, it was a meter showing something is getting closer"
>Meanwhile an AI marketing algorithm made by a techbro gained sentience and has been archiving humans and uploading them into a VR ark while storing their genetic information for later cloning
>Has created an actual zombie virus using nanites that turns people into 'dead' puppeting their bodies with metallic cillia like a second nervous system but they can be cut apart and still function
>Infects the player with it and allows them to kill zombies and store their conciousnesses in their mind to put in the ark
>ALL OF THIS IS CAPABLE BECAUSE OF ORGON ENERGY AND VRILL

This was meant to be a low budget funny haha dudebro zombie em up 10 years later. This is a fan prequel to Resistance Fall of Man with a dash of SOMA and /x/ without using the IP. What the hell happened.

      semi mystical "alternate energy source" bullshit folks like alistar crowley, madam blavatsky and hitlers thule society thought was real and would let them charge their JO crystals and summon tulpas. Absolute complete out of nowhere shit.

      Like imagine you get to the end of Mass Effect and it turns out Reapers are actually The Bloop or the Protheons were people that got lost in the Bermuda Triangle. This is some classic 1970's In Search of bullshit retconning the core game.

      In the early 1800s there was a book about an explorer going into the earth and finding a civilization of people who used telepathy as a energy source.

      The Hitler Fun Club got conned into believing a cult that claimed it was real, probably because they believed the vrill were all Aryans. It's been an occult and conspiracy favorite every since.

      By the DLC in dead island they are not zombies anymore. They are aliens using dead flesh as raw material. Not in a Necromorph way but there is one type that will give up a host and let the form liquify and in real time build a new body elsewhere out of gore lying around. Also includes Telepathy, Multiple realities, Hive minds, Being able to see the past and the future and talk to other autophage hybrids in other times and realities and being able to terraform/bioform entire planets.

      They just said frick it in a way i've not seen since the Graveminds introduction in Halo 2.

          Most of that shits in SoLA. But HAUS has some side quests setting it up. Also those orange balls causing frenzy? thats the orgon energy and its tapping into "The Dirge" which is repeating four words to repeat GATTACA.

          Basically SoLA is the following:
          >PC ends up at music festival, a "eco festival" built on native land thats secretly a massive failure eg the wind turbines are so heavy they need to be hooked up to the grid to work, water filters that take 18 gallons of water to make 1 gallon of piss drinkable and secretly making a ton of plastic they melt in caustic X. Built around a 'crazy' womans house they built a cheap wooden wall around
          >Some company sent them a bunch of those glowing balls to hook up to audio settings
          >"The Dirge" happens and all 30,000 attendies all turn into Autophage Mutations instantly with no bites.
          >Exploring this the PC starts to see into other realities and see a woman trying to code this signal together because its distorted
          >Woman back at her prepper house is hearing voices and getting headaches
          >Start to run into the new "Clotters" the Dirge bleeding in using the lake of gore from stampeded people to build and rebuild new bodies
          >PC finds out other woman is headphone girl from main game
          >She gets possessed by signal and tries to activate it on every speaker around the world
          >Prepper Woman looks like shes about to turn but turns out shes a Numen you like
          >Connect to numen throughout time and space
          >Together you pull headphone girl out of The Dirge and destroy machine
          >At the end find files talking about tomb from 1300ad where a body "entombed alive" used its own broken arm bone to carve the dirge into the inside of tomb.
          >Final quest has you go to a bar called "Sinamoi's" where someone has left notes implying they are helping you in the background.

          >The zombies you like are from Return of the Living Dead, a movie that featured full frontal nudity as much as zombies. That's where eating brains and walking skeletons with meat got popular and the axioms you think are classics started there.

            's explanation for his zombies was that hell was full and returning damned souls to their dead bodies.

            I don't think of "return of the living dead" zombies as classic zombies.

            No shit, obviously the concept got over exaggerated for the plot to be interesting.

      They're kind of different games.

        No it wasn't it was to show that the autophage was changing and his immunity to the banoi outbreak was losing out as the autophage had adapted and especially wasn't just being spread by bites in LA but also from machines giving off waves actively targeting the mutation. Sams infection was just a narrative way for him to drop the bullshit and tell Emma how he felt without putting up the front of an ageing one hit wonder rapper and just be a man instead.

      Haus went harder on art and set design. It felt like if artists from IOI and Remedy teamed up to make a bad dream. SoLA was 'fine' but i think they wanted to make something feeling like a throwback to Dead Island 1 and trouble is we been there and done that.

      Hoenstly HAUS's spooky false wood and 50's diner makes me want a Dead Island set in the past. We now know the Autophage outbreaks have been happening since at least the 1300's so why not a wild west game? gold age of piracy? hell go back and try fall of rome or dark ages england or black death france. Go nuts.

        >SoLA was 'fine'
        I dunno, maybe. The quests in this DLC were pretty repetitive. The final boss fight made me want to eat lead. I thought the whippers were pretty annoying but not in a bad way. They were okay to fight. The Dirge was kinda cool until near the end where it just got kinda obnoxious when those blob things started spawning in front of you.
        About the game in general, I wish this was a horror game through and through. Hopefully their future DLC or sequel lean toward that and maybe even ditch the comedic shit altogether. It's simply not funny. When the game attempted horror, which was pretty good, it would be almost immediately ruined by quippy dialogue from the PC or some other character. I really hate that shit.

        I hate these things.

    Something interesting is that between 2016 and about 2019 Dambuster were working on a game called Dead Island Serenity. It was cancelled, but I think that aspects of the game were incorporated into Dead Island 2. It was described by a leaker on Ganker as a "sci fi Dead Island spinoff" well before the Dead Island Serenity entry was found in the Nvidia database.

    I can't decide if the Resident Evil stuff is intentional or coincidental. In the Haus DLC you have the underground suburb that is sorta like the simulation environment in Resident Evil Retribution. There's also the AI that is running everything, named Konstantin. That name might not seem like anything, but the company that makes the Resident Evil films is named Constantin Film.
