  • The Gold Edition basically is catered to players who want the full experience, with the expansion pass included and everything, and have a lot more knowledge about Dead Island 2.
  • Lastly, the Hell-A Edition is for players that are just ultimately know-it-alls but also want to experience the game while also having small mementos to look back on, hence the physical items that are provided to them.
