Some folks in the UK have found that the Steam codes included in their retail copy of Dead Island: Riptide unlock Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition instead of the zombie slasher on the digital service.

In a post on the Steam forums, Deep Silver’s international community manager Maurice Tan noted that the issue affects retail copies in the United Kingdom and Nordic countries.

“Now, Dark Souls is an amazing game, but you probably bought Dead Island: Riptide to play Dead Island: Riptide,” he said. “For those of you who don’t know this, Dark Souls is also not a Deep Silver game.

“We are aware of this mixup by whoever printed these codes for a completely different game from a different publisher, and are working on a best possible solution to help affected players and retailers.

“We’ve worked with Steam to resolve this issue. If you are getting your retail copy of Dead Island: Riptide today, the code will work properly. If you had redeemed it and received Dark Souls instead, please contact Steam support. They are aware of the issue and will make sure the correct game will be attached to your account.”
