Default List of PS4 Games with DLC/Updates pre-installed on the disc

If you're like me, you might prefer physical discs due to wanting to have access to the game after servers will go down. However, with dlc & updates present in so many modern games, having the physical disc will only get you the day 1 edition of the game, often ridden with bugs or missing dlc. In some cases, games even require day 1 patches before even getting access the game, such as Call of Duty: WW2. This means once servers go down, the disc will be useless unless you already had the game installed.

The purpose of this list is list game discs that both do and do not come with dlc and/or updates pre-installed on the disc. Often, Game of the Year or Complete Editions will do both.

Note: These lists are incomplete, if you are unsure of a disc, make sure to do additional research on it before purchasing. Additionally, if I link a European or Asian disc, this is because it is either unavailable in the US or because the Euro/Asian disc is different from the US release.

Re-released PS4 Games with dlc & updates on the disc



Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition - New disc that has the new characters and maps, but some of the bonus downloadable content (10 lootboxes, and some characters skins) are on a DLC voucher. Game is 99% multiplayer, with only single-player mode being training (Which requires an online connection.)

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - All DLCs are on the disc (End of Zoe, Banned Footage Vol. 1 & 2) EXCEPT for the free "Not a Hero" DLC.

Rocket League: Ultimate Edition - Includes some dlc, not all, on the disc. Contains Update 1.42 pre-installed on disc, subsequent updates will have to be downloaded. DLC included with this release can be found here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQgSmNi79k4]

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition - Includes the Arcade update on the disc (Version 2.00), however the dlc fighters included are a one-time voucher code. Requires internet connection or a patch (not sure which, if you install the disc offline & download no patches, it is inaccessible) to play story mode; Arcade can be played offline straight off the disc.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series Collection - Includes all 19 episodes from Seasons 1-3, 400 Days, and Michonne.
____________________________________________

Initially digital only PS4 games, later released on disc, (often contains dlc & updates on the disc)

(Note, I will not be listing all titles put out by Limited Run Games, as those are a given, and they're too many of them to list.)



Everspace - Includes the Encounters dlc & update 1.04 on the disc, (game is now on version 1.07 last I checked).
__________________________________

PC or Xbox One games later released on PS4 (Will contain dlc on disc, but not updates)



Subnautica is very bug-filled without installing later PS4 patches.

__________________________________

Upcoming re-releases, whether dlc & updates will be on the disc is unknown

Games remasters/remakes from previous generations. (Have most, or all dlc on disc when applicable, but may require some updates. Range from minor to major.

A - C





Burnout Paradise launched with a major bug causing game crashes and corrupting save files. I believe this was later patched, but be aware the disc version will contain this bug if you do not update.

BulletStorm includes all dlc from last gen on the disc, except for the "Duke Nukem Tour", which is included as a download code.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched with a major bug that resulted in missing npcs necessary to complete the story. Later patched.

G - L


M - R


S

Street Fighter 30th - Versus & training modes must be downloaded in a day 1 patch

T - Z

PS4 releases with dlc voucher codes (not on the disc) [alternate launch editions, such as deluxe versions & season passes not included, as this is a given]


* Destiny - various re-releases of Destiny 1 are merely the same disc from its launch + DLC vouchers.

* Dragon Age Inquisition: Game of the Year Edition - same disc content as the original release + a DLC voucher to download the rest.

___________________________________________

Episodic games with discs that have all (or some) updates/DLC Episodes on the disc. Since some are complete, and others incomplete; I will detail each one individually



Batman: The Enemy Within - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc_

Batman: The Telltale Series - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.

The Council: Complete Edition - (Incomplete) Episodes 1-4 on the disc, Episode 5 must be downloaded.

Game of Thrones - (Incomplete) includes 4 out of 5 episodes on disc.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.

King's Quest - (Incomplete) first four episodes on-disc, final episode & epilogue are downloaded as updates

Life is Strange: Limited Edition - (Complete) All 5 episodes are on the disc.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm - (Incomplete) Episodes 1-3 on disc, Episode 4 must be downloaded through an included digital code.

The Long Dark - (Incomplete) Episodes 1 & 2 on disc, 3 must be downloaded. 4-5 are coming soon.

Minecraft: Story Mode - (Incomplete) Only Episode 1 on disc, rest must be downloaded. Was later re-released as "Minecraft Story Mode: The Complete Adventures", which includes all 8 episodes on the disc.

Minecraft: Story Mode – Season Two - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.

The Pillars of the Earth - (Incomplete) Chapters 1-7 on disc, 8-21 are downloaded as updates

Tales from the Borderlands - (Complete) includes all 5 episodes on disc.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc. (Available in its entirety in The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series Collection)

The Walking Dead: The Final Season - (Incomplete) includes 3 out of 4 episodes on disc.

The Wolf Among Us - (Complete) includes all 5 episodes on disc.

Since Telltale went out of business many of their games are being disappearing from digital storefronts. The downloads of additional episodes for the disc versions could disappear as well.
____________________________________

Disc releases that are NOT playable without a day 1 patch (Once servers go down, unless you alrealdy have the game installed and patched, you will not be able to play it.)

For instance, Call of Duty: WW2 requires the day 1 patch to make the campaign playable, must be downloaded.. If you do not install the patch, the disc will not allow you to play it. Spyro only has the first game on the disc, 2 & 3 must be patched in, Tony Hawk 5 only has the tutorial.



Single Player games or modes that REQUIRE constant internet connection to play. (Once servers go down, these games' single player modes will no longer be playable)

Hitman 1 & 2 can be technically be played offline, however there will be no progression such as unlocking weapons, leveling, etc; & will be a much more empty experience. Hitman: Definitive is missing the last episode on the disc.

Nice lists JEDGAR, thanks. I do prefer if they're offering a deluxe complete edition, that the DLC be on the disc, and not have to be downloaded separately as some developers try to offer.

According to this guy's video, Nier's GOTY has the dlc as a code. Will add Resident Evils though.

Thanks, like you said, it's really annoying when they re-release the same disc with a code, and advertise it as a complete edition. I'm more than willing to re-buy the game if the stuff is on the disc, but I've been burned a few times with vouchers. At that point, might as well have just bought the dlc on the ps store.

DLC On Disc

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto

Gungrave VR Loaded Coffin Edition (main game with bonus game that can be bought separately on PSN but together on disc)

Game Tengoku CrusinMix Special from Limited Run Games includes the 3 DLC Packs that are also on the PSN Store. Paradise Box Edition includes those 3 plus an added DLC only available in Japan and in the Paradise Box.

One Piece Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition includes the DLC from the previous PS3, Vita and 3DS versions. Digital only in America but physical copy elsewhere.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Eyes Of Heaven - just like One Piece Digital only in America but physical copy elsewhere. (Not 100% certain but the Creators were against DLC but the U.S. digital version includes all DLC without having a separate download).

Gravity Rush Remastered PS Vita’s DLC included but can still earn the DLC trophies. Limited physical release in America and not cheap or easy to find. Japanese version is easier to get.

Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round has a lot of stuff that is DLC in the PS3 versions even though yes there is still a lot that you still need to buy.

Shining Resonance Refrain has all 150+ PS3 versions DLC.

Code

Steins;Gate Elite with Steins;Gate Linear Bounded Phenogram game

Paragon *Included* over $150 of DLC in the physical copy but being online only that is now irrelevant

Thank you, will add them all once I get the chance. I will leave out Paragon though since it's an entirely useless disc & I wouldn't want to get anyone to accidentally buy it.

Spintires: American Wilds edition I believe gets all the DLC/updates on disc. (Haven't bought it myself yet, but I read that online.)

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and Metro: Redux (both originally on last-gen consoles) get everything on disc.


dunno if these count for the thread. But there are a few episodic games that were originally digital-only PSN releases, that later came out on disc with all (or some) updates and DLC.

Life is Strange (complete)
King's Quest (first four episodes on-disc, final episode & epilogue are downloaded as updates)
The Pillars of the Earth (chapters 1-7 on disc, 8-21 are downloaded as updates)

I think Rocket League has had two different physical releases now. (Complete and Ultimate?) Both complete at time of launch... both incomplete now, because more DLC and updates just keep coming

That’s how I found out by buying it recently just to find out that the game shut down long before I even bought it. Bought 2 copies because they were cheap but after finding out I decided that I could use the cases as spares for if I have a damaged case or since they’re almost Blu-ray size I could also use them for that too or just anything that needs a case for a disc.

Some errors in the third post:

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's single-player campaign is playable off the disc, it is also playable via LAN. Split-screen co-op requires a patch.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is playable off the disc (but I've heard it's drastically different with a patch).

The Hitman games do not require an internet connection to play the main campaign (more details in spoiler).

[Show spoiler]Hitman: The Complete First Season includes the single-player campaign on the disc.
Hitman: Definitive Edition is missing the last episode on the disc.
Hitman 2 includes the single-player campaign on the disc.

Both Hitman games arbitrarily require an online connection for certain features such as additional targets, weapons, and insertion points. An online connection is also required for all score-keeping.

I'll make those changes, except I've heard otherwise about Tony Hawk 5 on several different sites. I do remember reading the PS3 version shipped out later, and that had all the levels, but the ps4 version didn't. Is that what you're perhaps thinking of?

I barely played the game but I thought I got past the tutorial. I could be wrong but I'm not going to worry about it either way because it's a terrible game and I have no intention of ever playing it again.

Your wording on Call of Duty: Black Ops III is still wrong. The game is playable in single-player and in co-op via LAN without a patch. Only split-screen co-op requires a patch. Personally I don't think that it should be included on the list at all.

Okay, thanks. I misunderstood what you had meant regarding BOIII. I'll remove it.

Here's some more additions:

Re-released PS4 Games with dlc & updates on the disc

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series Collection - (Complete) includes all 19 episodes from Seasons 1-3, 400 Days, and Michonne.


Episodic games that were originally digital-only PSN releases, that later came out on disc with all (or some) updates and DLC. Some complete, others incomplete; I will detail each one individually

Batman: The Telltale Series - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.
Batman: The Enemy Within - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.
Game of Thrones - (Incomplete) includes 4 out of 5 episodes on disc.
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.
Minecraft: Story Mode – Season Two - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc.
Tales from the Borderlands - (Complete) includes all 5 episodes on disc.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier - (Incomplete) includes 1 out of 5 episodes on disc. (Available in its entirety in The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series Collection)
The Walking Dead: The Final Season - (Incomplete) includes 3 out of 4 episodes on disc.
The Wolf Among Us - (Complete) includes all 5 episodes on disc.

Also it's worth nothing that since Telltale went out of business many of their games are disappearing from digital storefronts. The downloads of additional episodes for the disc versions could disappear as well.

Thanks, added them all. WD: Final, Batman: Enemy, & Minecraft S2 didn't have database listings so no pics yet. I'll add them once they're approved.
