Dead Island 2 Preorders - Bonuses And Collector's Edition Still Available
Dead Island 2 releases on April 21 for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
After more than a decade of waiting, Dead Island fans are so close to getting their hands on the sequel. Dead Island 2 releases on April 21 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox, and PC. If you're looking forward to slaying hundreds of zombies, multiple editions of Dead Island 2 are available to preorder. At this time, the priciest edition--the Hell-A edition--is still available to preorder for $100. And regardless of which edition or platform you pick, you'll score some preorder bonuses by ordering early.
Dead Island 2 Preorder Bonuses
All Dead Island 2 preorders come with the Memories of Banoi Pack, which includes the Banoi War Club, Memories of Banoi Baseball Bat, a Balanced Weapon Perk, and Personal Space Skill Card.
If you want a physical edition, your best bet is to preorder Dead Island 2 from Best Buy. The retailer is giving away an exclusive steelbook case, shown above, with all preorders.
Preorder Dead Island 2 Day 1 Edition
The standard edition of Dead Island 2 is also called the "Day One Edition" for physical copies (at least at launch), but they’re essentially the same thing. You’ll get the base game along with any eligible preorder bonuses.
It's worth noting that there are three different disc versions: PS5, PS4, and Xbox. Like many other game releases, the Xbox version comes with both the Series X and Xbox One editions. PlayStation is a bit more complicated. The PS4 disc also comes with the PS5 version, while the PS5 disc only works on PS5. Regardless of which platform you choose, the standard edition of Dead Island 2 costs $70.
Preorder Dead Island 2 Pulp Edition
As an alternative to the Day 1 edition, there's the Pulp edition. Weirdly enough, this edition also costs $70. The only difference here is that you also get the Pulp Weapons Pack (on top of the regular preorder bonuses).
The Pulp edition comes with the base game, any eligible preorder bonuses, and the Pulp Weapons Pack--which is filled with digital goodies. This version is only available in physical formats.
Preorder Dead Island 2 Digital Deluxe Edition
Step up to the digital-only Deluxe edition and you’ll get the Golden Weapons Pack and Character Pack 1 & 2. These offer some in-game goodies to help jumpstart your zombie-slaying career.
Preorder Dead Island 2 Gold Edition
The Dead Island 2 Gold Edition clocks in at $90, but you’re getting a lot of content for the price. Here’s a closer look at everything it offers:
- Pulp Weapons Pack
- Golden Weapons Pack
- Character Pack 1 & 2
- Expansion Pass
Preorder Dead Island 2 Hell-A Edition
The Hell-A Edition is essentially the collector’s edition of Dead Island 2. It includes everything found in the Gold Edition, along with a steelbook case and collectible items. These collectibles include:
- Venice Beach Travel Map
- Six Slayer Tarot Cards
- Two Pin Badges
- One Patch
Yes, that means you'll get two steelbook cases if you preorder this edition from Best Buy
