But the devs at Techland are saying this isn’t just another remaster. They’ve brought the titles to their next-gen engine, which offers a host of graphical and performance improvements.

So, in their own words, here’s what you’ll get for rebuying:

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“ – meaning a much cleaner look throughout

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 an 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 Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide. Increase to equal quality level for seamless game experience

The Current-gen Console Experience
The Dead Island Definitive Collection will also of course take advantage of the latest console features such as Online 4 Player Co-op, PS®Vita Remote-Play (PS4™), Share-Play (PS4™), streaming and recording

Power Fists Power-up
And last but not least, the fan favorite unofficial PC mod will also now be added to both products. Punch your way through the mayhem with craziest power-up, ever.

The compilation collection will be released May 31 both physically and digitally, and will be available for an RRP of $39.99. The games will also be available individually on console stores for $19.99. Side scroller Dead Island Retro Revenge.
