Two Dead Island games for Xbox One, Dead Island and its sequel Dead Island: Riptide, just received Definitive Editions on Microsoft’s console sporting mostly graphical improvements to both titles, but some new features and downloadable content, as well.
Gamers have the choice of buying Definitive Editions of each that were released separately for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, or purchase the Dead Island Definitive Collection. However, it looks like publisher Deep Silver did a better job with the Xbox One version than with the version for PS4. Namely, Xbox One users who purchase Dead Island Definitive Collection will receive both games on-disc, plus a new game called Dead Island: Retro Revenge. PlayStation 4 users, on the other hand, will receive only the first game on-disc and download the other games.
Here’s the description for Dead Island Definitive Edition for Xbox One:
“The game that re-defined the Zombie genre – fully remastered. Paradise meets Hell! Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse experience of a lifetime – and now more beautiful than ever. Caught in the midst of an epic zombie outbreak on the tropical island of Banoi, your only thought is: Survival! Smash heads, crack skulls and slice ‘em up with visceral astounding melee combat and true story-based 4 player co-op in a sprawling open world just waiting for exploration.”
Here’s the game description for Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition for Xbox One:
“Continue the story of the Outbreak and see another Paradise gone to Hell – fully remastered. Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse experience of a lifetime – and now more beautiful than ever. Caught in the midst of an epic zombie outbreak on the tropical island of Banoi, your only thought is: Survival!”
The Dead Island Definitive Collection is now available in the Xbox Store for $39.99.
