Game Description: You may pre-download this game, but it will not be playable until 12:01 AM EST on the release date (5/31/2016).

Caught in the midst of an epic zombie outbreak on the tropical island of Banoi, your only thought is: Survival!  The ultimate Dead Island collection – fully remastered. The Dead Island Definitive Collection contains the genre defining Dead Island and its undead successor Dead Island Riptide bundled with all previously released DLC.

The Definitive Collection includes: Dead Island Definitive Edition, Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition and Dead Island Retro Revenge.

Beta tests can be an important step in the video game development process since it provides developers with bug detection as well as feedback on design and operational readiness in a real world environment. It also provides gamers an opportunity to test and experience these titles firsthand before their official release date. Due to the number of released and upcoming betas that have been announced, I wanted to share a consolidated list of titles with links where you can download/pre-download the beta or visit the official website for more information.
