A new patch has arrived to fix a number of outstanding issues with Dead Island on PC, including corrupted save files. The long-awaited "Bloodbath" DLC is still unavailable, due to Techland working on all these fixes. Oh, Techland!

Most of the issues stem from inventory problems, so the patch fixes a lot of problem with items, including accidental duplicates, storage capacity, disappearing equipment and item stacking. In addition, the game no longer freezes in four-player co-op and zombie bodies no longer levitate. Oh, Techland!

Check out the full list below. There are quite a lot of fixes detailed, because OH TECHLAND!

-Fixed running game on Steam in offline mode

-Fixed damaged saves when a player has more than 190 items in inventory (weapon or stacked items, counting in items from Jin’s storage and player inventory). Corrupted savegames will be recovered when possible.

-Fixed problems with unlocking “There and back again” with progress 72/72

-Fixed duplicating weapons:
–When throwing and dropping at one time
–When dropping items from inventory

-Optimized scanning for friends-process, to decrease lobby server workload

-Fixed random freezes when playing 4 players coop no longer appear

-Fixed issues when using medkits from inventory menu

-Stacking items issue solved: miscellaneous items to 9999, medkits and alcohol to 30 instead of 10.

-Added the option to disable voice chat in game.

-Limited Jin’s storage capacity to 150

-Fixed: disappearing items when there is no place in inventory and a player tries to get an item from Jin’s storage

-Improved trading: items will be removed from the smallest stack instead of a random one.

-Fixed problems with corrupted profiles, which caused the game to start with black screen and freeze.

-Fixed levitating zombies after killing

-Fixed not being able to show quest details in quest menu using Xbox controller
