Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition Next Month?

Siliconera has word on the discovery of a British Board of Film Classification rating for a Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition. This includes words this is to be released in the U.K. on June 30th, with the timeframe probably more of a revelation than plans for the inevitable GotY SKU.

Worth every bit of the $35 I spent, had a blast playing this Coop and it's the reason I finally joined Steam. If the only difference in GotY is DLC, pass on it and just buy the regular game, since for the most part DLC sucks in this game.

It's true it was consolized, but easily editable for PC gamers. Once modded it looked and ran amazingly, with the Resort area being extremely well done. This is a problem Techland has had all along, they are console *hores, can't seem to wrap there head around the whole PC thing. However the biggest problems they've had their past game(s) CoJ, which did get fixed? Open world and Coop are done really well here.

Are there actual specifics about the complaints of the trailer not portraying the actual game, I didn't notice?

The main thing afaik is there really isn't a better Coop game, certainly nothing this well done in a long time.

Yes I agree. I also enjoyed this game a lot. Took me 30hrs to finish the campaign (coop). I didn't rush it. Many times the graphics wowed me. The world is varied enough, the textures are good and colorful. Sounds are good. Weapons customizing system is very well done. It's not a perfect game, no. Roughly 8/10 for me.

Will still go back to it occasionally. Sometimes there's graphical stuttering when moving, but when standing still it's gone.

Coop was innovatively implemented where if someone else online was near you in the game-world, you could join them or they could join you in progress. No need to manually setup a coop session. It just worked. You'd keep all your levels/guns/ammo/etc when joining someone else's game. It's more casual but it worked. For small scale coop like this, no dedicated servers are needed. You can also join other players via STEAM friends drop-down menu.

I'm very much hoping they make an improved sequel that is still true to this one. A patch would be nice for this GOTY release. Agree it seems like a cash-in and doesn't offer anything more to us.
