Dead Island: Retro Revenge

Deep Silver has released the debut trailer for Dead Island: Retro Revenge, its upcoming, retro-style Dead Island mini-game included free with the retail version of Dead Island: Definitive Collection and early purchases of the digital version.

The trailer details the story of a man whose cat and ride were stolen by the undead. It promises a game “chock full of awesome enemies, sick combos, and enough challenges to send all you hardcore types crying home to mama.”

Here’s an overview, via Deep Silver:


Hell-bent on saving his cat, Max must carve a bloody path through a zombie-infested California, tearing his way through hordes of the undead, battalions of corrupt soldiers, and a slew of evil-minded ex-cons. Pull off crazy combos, collect power-ups, wield super weapons, and unleash insane magic attacks as you fight to become the amazing 16-bit side-scrolling hero you’ve always believed yourself to be!


  • Retro look meets melee-based combat
    Featuring leader boards, achievements and a level of depth beyond the genre
    Game mechanics include power-ups, super attacks and a cool combo system

Dead Island: Definitive Collection is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 31.
