Been plugging in those pre-order DLC for Dead Island over the past couple of weeks? Well, according to the official Dead Island Facebook Page you’re going to waiting a bit a longer as Techland continues to iron out the myriad of bugs still plaguing the main game.
We are working hard to make the Bloodbath Arena DLC available as soon as possible. However, due to further polishing of the main game the finalisation of the DLC code has been delayed. We know that many fans are eagerly waiting for it and apologise for any inconvenience. We expect to announce a release update next week.
Technical hiccups and performance issues have marred the Deep Silver FPS/RPG hybrid since launch, resulting in a number of critics negatively adjusting their scores. Though some users have had fairly bug-free experiences, others (including myself) have been forced to abandon the game due to Autosave glitches and loss of trophy progression. Even without the frustrating technical difficulties Dead Island is no masterpiece, however it’s definitely a “must try” for gamers looking for something out of the ordinary.
