Earlier today, Best Buy posted an advertisement for the Dead Island Definitive Collection, a new unannounced Dead Island game. Best Buy explained that the Dead Island Definitive Collection would be a package of both of the previously released Dead Island games. A 16-bit retro side scroller was also listed as an included bonus.
In an exciting conclusion to the rumour, the Dead Island Definitive Collection was actually confirmed to be a legitimate title and it will be making its way to shelves on May 31 2016. The definitive edition promises to bring forth some great performance improvements and graphical improvements. Deep Silver have promised higher quality textures along with higher quality images, a more realistic lighting system, updated game UI and many more upgrades. Players can also expect to receive all DLC content released for the previous two games.
As a bonus, the Dead Island Definitive Collection will also come packaged with the retro styled game I mentioned earlier, Retro Revenge. Deep Silver have given us a brief rundown of what to expect from Retro Revenge.
- Retro look meets melee-based combat
- Featuring leaderboards, achievements and plenty of depth
- Game mechanics include power-ups, super attacks and a combo system
