The Dead Island Definitive Collection is now available to pre-order and pre-download on Microsoft’s Xbox One video game console.
The collection contains the Definitive Edition versions of the original Dead Island as well as its sequel, Dead Island: Riptide. Both games have been fully remastered with improved graphics and lighting and also contain all of the downloadable content (DLC) that was released after their initial launches.
The Dead Island Definitive Collection also comes with Dead Island Retro Revenge, a 16-bit-inspired brawler which came out in January of this year. Here’s its official description:
Time for some 16-bit retro revenge! Hell-bent on saving his cat, Max must carve a bloody path through a zombie-infested California, tearing his way through hordes of the undead, battalions of corrupt soldiers, and a slew of evil-minded ex-cons. Pull off crazy combos, collect power-ups, wield super weapons, and unleash insane magic attacks as you fight to become the amazing 16-bit side-scrolling hero you've always believed yourself to be!
