Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition Content Revealed

dead island 2 collector's edition

Dambuster Studios, the developer behind Dead Island 2, blew the doors of the project in a fifteen-minute-long showcase. In this breakdown, the team revealed the entire game, which fans have been waiting for almost ten years.

It has been a long journey, but it’s almost time for Dead Island 2 to hit the shelves and (hopefully) begin selling like hotcakes. During the showcase, Dambuster took the opportunity to reveal the hilarious cast and content, the gory, adrenaline-fuelled combat, and the vast, open-world setting of Los Angeles.

Toward the end of the showcase, the Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition content was also revealed, along with exclusive pre-order content.

Dead Island 2 Pre-Order Content Revealed

There are throwbacks to Dead Island with the pre-order content.

When players pre-order Dead Island 2, which launches April 28th, 2023, they’ll receive the Memories of Banoi pack, which equips them with two feisty-looking bats. It seems that melee weapons are king once again in Dead Island 2, but admittedly, there is a considerable focus on ranged combat as well.

In the first Dead Island game (and in Riptide, the follow-up), guns were almost useless. However, in the fifteen-minute showcase, we saw that that isn’t the case in Dead Island 2, as there are guns… Lots and lots of guns – and they all seem to work quite well.

Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition Content Looks Superb

This isn’t even scratching the surface – the Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition is impressive!

There’s one hell of a bundle coming with the Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition. Firstly, there’s the pre-order content that we’ve just mentioned above, and joining it is a range of digital add-ons that players can put to work in the game itself (see above).

In a world so driven by digital content, it’s surprising to learn that Dambuster Studios has opted to feature lots of physical content in the Dead Island 2 Collector’s Edition. This includes an exclusive steelbook, a map of the game, pins, tarot cards, and a limited edition polyresin statue of Amy, the female protagonist in the game.

Oh, and it also comes with the expansion pass, but we don’t know what that’s going to feature just yet.

It’s one hell-a of a bundle, and at the moment, it’s all available to be pre-ordered.
