Dead Island Definitive Collection is Coming For You

Posted: 11:14AM

Techland has been busy lately. Earlier this week its game Dying Light had NVIDIA PCSS technology patched in, and now the Dead Island Definitive Collection has been announced. The collection includes both Dead Island (released 2011) and its stand-alone expansion, Dead Island: Riptide (released 2013) with all of the previously released DLC and will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The new mini game, Dead Island Retro Revenge is also included. It features a retro look to its melee-based combat, power-ups, super attacks, a combo system, leaderboards, and achievements.

To bring the titles to the current crop of consoles, both Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide have been rebuilt on Techland's next gen Chrome engine and will feature several improvements. The game textures have been redone at a higher resolution, models and geometry assets have had their quality increased, the lighting system has been improved to be more photorealistic, and Chrome engine's physically based shading technique is being employed to make the models and objects look better in various lighting conditions. A more sophisticated anti-aliasing system has also been added, for the benefit of console players, and HBAO and motion blur effects have been added. The UI has also been updated to provide a more consistent look between the two games and a fan favorite unofficial PC mod is being added to both titles, so you can punch your way through the games.

The Dead Island Definitive Collection is set to release on May 31 for $39.99. If you only want one title, Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition will be available separately for the Xbox One and PS4 at $19.99 each, on the same day. Dead Island Retro Revenge is only included with the collection.
