Dead Island Definitive Collection Announced


It looks like Deep Silver wants us to revisit the plagued island of Banoi once more time before Dead Island 2 launches.

On May 31, you can return to jump kicking zombies all over the island of Banoi. The collection will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will be remastered and improved from the original releases.

The collection will include the original Dead Island with all DLC and Dead Island: Riptide. The will also be a bonus title, called Dead Island: Retro Revenge and there will be no Escape from Dead Island.

Dead Island: Definitive Collection contains Dead Island: Definitive Edition, Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition and a brand new stand-alone 16-bit game Dead Island: Retro Revenge.

Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition are fully remastered versions of Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide including all released DLC and patches.

Dead Island: Retro Revenge is a brand new stand-alone 16-bit game set in the style of a classic side-scrolling action / endless runner within the Dead Island universe.
