Deep Silver has released Dead Island Definitive Collection which includes the complete edition of both Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide along with a new 16-bit Beat’em Up Dead Island Retro Revenge.

The rebuilding of both Dead Island games on Techland‘s next gen engine brings with it a significant visual & performance overhaul, introducing many cutting edge current-generation graphical effects:

  • Higher Quality Textures: Game textures have been redone in a higher resolution and the level of quality has been improved across the board
  • Photorealistic new lighting system: The lighting system in the game has been vastly improved, providing a much more realistic look to the beautiful sunny tropical setting
  • Physically based shading: The introduction of new physically based shading techniques due to the latest iteration of the Chrome Engine means a higher quality look to the game models and objects as they react in a more realistic way to various lighting conditions
  • Image quality enhancements via anti-aliasing: The addition of more sophisticated anti-aliasing means that console players can now experience Dead Island without unsightly jaggies
  • Improved-quality game models and geometry assets: All major geometry assets (for example: NPCs and character models) highlight a marked quality increase
  • HBAO and motion blur effects: The introduction of Horizon-based Ambient Occlusion adds a extra layer of depth and realism to the world through a better implementation of object shadows, while the all-new motion blur effects will provide a much more cinematic feel to the game experience.
  • Updated game UI: Providing a more consistent look between both games and increased to equal quality level for seamless game experience.
  • The Dead Island Definitive Collection takes advantage of the latest console features such as Online 4 Player Co-op, PS Vita Remote-Play (PS4), Share-Play (PS4), streaming and recording
  • And last but not least, the fan favourite unofficial PC mod, One Punch Mode, will also now be added to both games.

While Dead Island Retro Revenge features:

  • Retro look meets melee-based combat
  • Featuring leaderboards, achievements and plenty of depth
  • Power-ups, super attacks and a combo system
