‘Riptide’ Not Included On ‘Dead Island Definitive Collection’ PS4 Disc

Published

Quick heads up to those of you who are planning on getting the Dead Island Definitive Edition when it hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One next week — for PS4 owners, only the original game is included on the disc, so you’ll need to download Riptide.

Deep Silver confirmed the news on Twitter, saying “On XB1 it is on the same disc. PS4 discs don’t support multiple games, so there Riptide comes as a download code.”

When their followers pointed out the problem with that statement — Uncharted, Borderlands and Metro have all had shared disc bundles — the publisher clarified their wording, adding “We could’ve worded that better,” and “You need a separate menu, you can’t just put two games on disc the same way as on XB1.”

This isn’t a huge deal, more of a small annoyance really. It’s just unusual. When GameSpot pushed further, all they got was “There are limitations where you are unable to have multiple multiplayer experiences on the same disc, unfortunately we can’t comment further.”

Oh well. At least I was able to learn some more neat bits from their Twitter page, like how all three games will come with 1,000 GS points, or whatever the trophy equivalent of that is. It makes sense for the first two games to be treated like the full retail releases they were originally, but it’s mildly surprising that Retro Revenge is getting the same treatment.
