Dead Island Definitive Collection will contain Dead Island Definitive Edition, Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition, and Dead Island Retro Revenge as an added FREE bonus. I will become available digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 31st 2016. Pre-orders have gone live for PlayStation 4 players. The game will have a SRP of $39.99.
Each game has been rebuilt on Techland’s next gen engine. With an enormous visual and performance overhaul, The Definitive Collection introduces many graphical effects, like:
Higher Quality Textures: Higher resolution and level of quality across the board.
Photorealistic New Lighting System: The lighting system has been improved, giving the sunny tropics a much more realistic look.
Physically Based Shading: New physically based shading techniques will give game models and objects a higher quality look as they react realistically to various lighting conditions.
Image Quality Enhancements Via Anti-Aliasing: a more sophisticated anti-aliasing means gamers will get a much cleaner look throughout the game.
Improved-Quality Game Models and Geometry Assets: All major NPC and character models have undergone a sever quality increase.
HBAO and Motion Blur Effects: The introduction of Horizon-Based Ambient Occlusion adds an extra layer of depth and realism. Players will get a much more cinematic feel to the game with better implementation of object shadows, and new motion blur effects.
Updated UI: Updated UI provides a more consistent look for Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide.
The Current-gen Console Experience: The Definitive Collection will take advantage of console features only found on current gen systems.
Power Fists Power-Up: A fan favorite, un-official PC mod will be making its way into the official game! Punch your way through crowds of undead with the most insane power-up ever!
Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide will also be available on their own for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC at an SRP of $19.99 each.
