The Death Of The Party is an optional side quest that can be found and completed early on within Dead Island 2. It is part of the Bel-Air map.
The side quest itself will start by someone seemingly crying out for help over on the intercom. It will come as a bit of a surprise as it is not part of the main story. We can also find the quest shortly after having come across a section of zombie walkers where we can take advantage of the Meat Bait to distract the creatures.

A CRY FOR HELP! ANSWER THE INTERCOM
In order to activate this side quest we can head to the Map menu and track it. This will make things much more easier.
Our first objective is to answer the intercom, which is to the right of the police vehicle. Here we will speak with a man named Curtis.
Apparently Curtis managed to scare away a survivor by accident. He is now worried about them and wants us to escort them back to safety.
SEARCH THE GROUNDS FOR ANY OTHER SURVIVORS
Curtis will then open the gate for us. Our job now is to explore the front of the property and search for any survivors. It does not start off very well as one of them is already zombie chow. We were too late. However, we were not meant to save them anyway.
KILL THE PARTY CRASHERS
Head into the large courtyard area and we will see a group of zombies. Turns out there are no survivors. So, instead, Curtis will appear and help us eliminate the remaining zombie horde.
Once the walkers have been dealt with proceed and speak with Curtis, who is standing on top of the roof.
He will mention that he needs our help in getting down. That his hips are not that great due to all of the movie and film work he has done in the past. He requires his chairlift but the power inside the house has gone.
RESTORE POWER TO CURTIS’ RESIDENCE
Head down to the garden and enter through the door, into the circuit breaker room. Watch out as a zombie will be waiting on the other side. Defeat the zombie and activate the power supply. Report back to Curtis. Who will agree to let you inside the property.
ENTER CURTIS’ RESIDENCE
In order to enter Curtis’ residence we need to head around the property, to the left. Past the water feature. Eliminate the zombie that is trying to enter the building and head inside. Here we will meet up with Curtis once again.
Curtis will then ask for us to activate the chairlift for him. Which is over by the doorway.
(NOTE: Whilst we are inside the Curtis’ residence we can also find the Lightweight blueprint. Which is said to increase the overall attack speed of certain weapon types. Furthermore there is a journal entry known as Tony The Schemer. Which tells part of the story relating to Curtis’ nephew)
CLEAR THE RUNWAY FOR CURTIS
Once the chairlift has been activated Curtis will then begin making a slow and steady descent down the stairs. Whilst he does that we need to eliminate more hordes of zombies that now enter the building.
Once Curtis reaches the ground floor and the walkers have all been dealt with we can then follow him to a fancy living room area in order to complete the side quest.
