Dead Island Definitive Edition PS4 Requires Download of Dead Island Riptide

In a series of tweets, publisher Deep Silver revealed that the PS4 edition of Dead Island Definitive Edition will include the original game on the disc, but players will have to hit up PSN.

If you want to play Dead Island: Riptide, however, you'll have to download it. In addition, the collection includes all of the DLC released with both games as well as Dead Island: Retro Revenge, a side-scrolling spin-off inspired by the 16-bit era. However, for PS4 users, the physical disc will only contain the first game.

"On XB1 it is on the same disc", Deep Silver said on Twitter, replying to a fan asking whether the two games would come on separate discs.

Definitive Edition will feature some significant remastering of the previous games including better textures and a new lighting system.

Again, this comes off as odd considering the PS4's amount of collections and the fact that Metro Redux has separate menus for its games all on the same disc, without requiring a download.

Regardless of the answer, Dead Island Definitive Edition goes on sale on May 31 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
