Which is the best to bash some zombie brains in?

Dead Island 2 Edition Differences

The zombie apocalypse has started, so now it is time to get started on your quest to survive HELL-A! But before you can jump in and bash zombie brains, you need to decide which edition will be best to do so. If you're wondering, "Which edition should I get?", then we've got you covered!

Pre-order Bonus

The game releases on the 21st of April, so there is still plenty of time to get the pre-order bonus and start your journey strong!

If you purchase the game before release, you will get the Memories of Banoi Pack, featuring the Banoi War Club, Banoi Baseball Bat, Weapons Perk, and Skills Card! A great start to a great adventure.

Pre-order Dead Island 2 to receive the following:

  • Dead Island 2 Base Game
  • Banoi War Club (Memories of Banoi Pack)
  • Banoi Baseball Bat (Memories of Banoi Pack)
  • Weapons Perk (Memories of Banoi Pack)
  • Skills Card (Memories of Banoi Pack)

Standard Edition

Jump into the cleverly-named HELL-A with the highly-anticipated Dead Island 2! As a human that is resistant to the pathogen — along with only a handful of others — you will be the last of LA. The future of the city, and perhaps even humanity, lies in peril. Will you be able to overcome it?

Explore LA in a new, contrasting world with colourful and grim vistas simultaneously with Dead Island 2's portrayal of the city. Explore the City of Angels and many of its key landmarks to fully immerse yourself in the horror.

By purchasing the Standard Edition, you'll get the following items:

  • Dead Island 2 Base Game
  • Banoi War Club (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Banoi Baseball Bat (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Weapons Perk (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Skills Card (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April

Deluxe Edition

Jump into Los Angeles with the Deluxe Edition and you'll get a slew of other bonuses aside from what's offered in the Standard Edition! With a couple of Golden weapons — the Golden Mace and Golden Pistol — you'll be able to mow through zombies in style.

If golden-plated armaments aren't enough, then the extra Characters Pack 1 & 2 will ensure you have skins for the protagonists, as it'll feature both a unique costume and a weapon for the playable characters! Survive HELL-A, but at least ensure you look good doing so!

By pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition of Dead Island 2, you get the following:

  • Dead Island 2 Base Game
  • Banoi War Club (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Banoi Baseball Bat (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Weapons Perk (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Skills Card (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Golden Mace (Golden Weapons Pack)
  • Golden Pistol (Golden Weapons Pack)
  • Character Pack 1
  • Character Pack 2

Gold Edition

Strangely enough, not the edition that has the Golden Weapons Pack, but I guess that was too on the nose! Aside from all of the content from the Deluxe Edition, the Gold Edition has various items that you'll want to snag if you truly want to show your loyalty to the franchise!

Get both the Eye Opener and Homewrecker Weapons with the Pulp Weapons Pack included in the Gold Edition! I don't want to know what the Eye Opener does, as it sounds terrifying, but I'm cautiously intrigued by the Homewrecker!

The story isn't over when the credits roll with the Gold Edition, as you'll also be able to snag the Expansion Pass with this edition! With two new upcoming chapters, you'll be able to set out on a quest even after the main events have finished to experience more of HELL-A, fight new foes, complete new missions, and acquire new weapons. Will you survive?

By pre-ordering the Gold Edition of Dead Island 2, you’ll get the following: 

  • Dead Island 2 Base Game
  • Banoi War Club (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Banoi Baseball Bat (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Weapons Perk (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April
  • Skills Card (Memories of Banoi Pack) — Only before 21st of April

  • Golden Pistol (Golden Weapons Pack)
  • Character Pack 1
  • Character Pack 2
