Dead Island PC patch arrives, fixes corrupted saves bug
The Bloodbath Arena DLC got delayed so Techland could continue work patching up the original game. Today we're getting a look at what they've been working on. The new patch covers a number of significant issues and fixes, most notably a bug which corrupted save files when a player had more than 190 items in their inventory.
The full list of fixes and changes is included below:
-Fixed running game on Steam in offline mode
