Dead Island: Definitive Collection releases on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC next week, but it seems there’s a bit of an issue with the PlayStation version, in that you won’t get both Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide on the disc.
Dead Island: Definitive Collection includes both games in remastered form, inclusive of all DLC, as well as a spin-off retro brawler called Dead Island Retro Revenge. However, the PS4 disc only contains the original Dead Island title, while Riptide itself will have to be downloaded via the PSN store.
The information first came via a response to a fan question on Twitter, saying that the Xbox One version contains both games on disc, while on the PS4, Riptide will be available via a download code.
@GTA_Sammm On XB1 it is on the same disc. PS4 discs don't support multiple games, so there Riptide comes as a download code.

Speaking to Gamespot in response to this inquiry, Deep Silver said “There are limitations where you are unable to have multiple multiplayer experiences on the same disc, unfortunately we can’t comment further.”
That didn’t sound too charming, but Deep Silver later responded to the tweet saying “We could’ve worded that better. You need a separate menu, you can’t just put two games on disc the same way as on XB1.”
Dead Island: Definitive Collection releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 31st.
