Another Dead Island Remaster Listing Appears for Xbox One/PS4 With a Release Date of December 4th

Remasters have become a quick and easy way for publishers to make a few extra quid in between big releases. It’s not a terrible thing as it allows players to experience games that they may have missed out on last-gen in their best form on their next-gen consoles.

One game that could definitely do with a remaster is Techland’s Dead Island. It was a decent game when it released and the RPG aspects really added a layer of depth that open-world games tend to lack; plus the zombie killing was frigging immense. Unfortunately it suffered some horrific glitches on the PS3 and Xbox 360 (the PC release was a little better) and the frame rate was downright criminal at times.

It looks like we’re going to see a PS4/Xbox One update sooner rather than later if Swiss outlet is to be believed. The website recently posted a listing for the next-gen version of the game before taking it down. We’ve got a screen cap below that shows a supposed release date of December 4th. There’s nothing official at the moment but we’ve fired off an email to Techland to see what’s going on. We’ve also sent a second email just to let them know we’re serious.

Dead Island 2 is due out sometime next year on Xbox One, PC, and PS4, so a remaster wouldn’t be the worst way to introduce newcomers to the series.

  1. I’ve had tons of fun playing dead island on my ps3. I specially loved the weapon crafting and the huge maps.

    So, of course, I can’t wait to play dead island 2 (ah, that trailer…).

    But if there is a ps4 remaster, it will be great.replaying it with 2 or 3 times more polygons, zombies are going to look damn real !

    1. Might be worth checking Dying Light out, too. It’s by the same people and it was going to be another Dead Island before they decided to make it its own franchise. But yeah, I’ve been playing Dead Island Riptide on the Vita (PS Now) and it’s decent, but a proper HD port would be welcomed

      1. I have riptide on my ps3, waiting until I have some time to play it. It was one of the million games we got for free, via ps+.

        And yeah, I’ll be picking day light on ps4, eventually when the price drops. Too many games to play, and there are only 7 days in one week :)

        *4 more trophies to go, and I’ll get my platinum, on Peggle 2*
