Dead Island Riptide comes as a download in PS4 Definitive Edition - Dead Island: Definitive Edition for PS4 News

Only the original Dead Island will be included on the PS4 disc of next week's Definitive Edition, Deep Silver has confirmed, with Dead Island Riptide instead requiring a separate download. A code to download it will be included in the box.

The Xbox One version functions slightly differently, however, with both games included on a single disc.

"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. "PS4 discs don't support multiple games, so there Riptide comes as a download code."

Dead Island: Definitive Edition includes remastered versions of last-gen's survival-RPGs featuring higher-quality textures, a new lighting system and a host of other graphical improvements. It also throws in new side-scrolling game Dead Island: Retro Revenge.

The collection is due to launch on both PS4 and Xbox One next Tuesday, May 31.

UPDATE: After it was highlighted that Metro: Redux, a two-game collection shipped by Deep Silver in 2014 featured both games on a single PS4 disc, the publisher has further clarified why Dead Island is split between disc and download.

"We could've worded that better," the publisher added on Twitter. "You need a separate menu, you can't just put two games on disc the same way as on XB1."
