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!
