Dead Island is out today and we thought we’d do a run down on the best collector’s editions that are available for this long awaited game from Techland.
All of these collector’s editions are country specific but that’s why we have eBay and international shipping, although not all websites will ship internationally of course, and some editions aren’t available on websites and may have sold out months ago.
Dead Island Limited Treasure edition
The Limited Treasure Edition of Dead Island is packed inside a handmade wooden “Treasure Box” which is unique and numbered. It contains the following:
- Packed in a lavishly designed, handmade wooden “Treasure Box” including unique Dead Island Branding

The Red edition is an Austrain exclusive and can only be bought via gamesonly.at
Finally the one Polish edition (Techland are Polish) which I’m sure Poland doesn’t get many of.
Dead Island Gore Edition/Survival Kit
This edition comes within a large box made especially for this edition, it includes the following:
- Dead Island version of Gore Edition
- Stylized pack Gore Edition
- "Fan Kit" DVD
- Door hanger
- Skylights rescue (neon sticks)
- Adventure First Aid Kit
- Magnifying glass
- Multi-function pocket knife
- Re-usable bottle
- Small bag
- Double-sided poster
- Polo shirt
- DLC Blood Bath Arena
- DLC Weapon: Ripper
- Brain Wave Bomb DLC
The Gore edition was available to purchase through wirtualnypunkt.pl although they seem to have sold out, ebay is your best friend in this case, until the user has sold their last few PC copies. There were a few other Polish websites selling this edition but all that I looked at seemed to be out of stock.
All the versions I've listed are available on all platforms; Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and for Windows, it may be harder to track down console versions though as they tend to sell out first.
As well as the collector’s editions that I’ve listed there were also versions with Turtle Beach Headsets, a different type of bag and a different t-shirt. I’ve pre-ordered the Gore edition myself, will you be picking up Dead Island today? Or perhaps in the future?
