Deep Silver’s media guru Aubrey Norris released a statement yesterday regarding the issue with Dead Island and a few other things along with how it’s getting fixed and a “make up” reward.
Ã‚Â· Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â First, the correct version of the title is now available on Steam and fans are able to download it now.
Ã‚Â· Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Second, the day 1 patch notes in their entirety are below. Ã‚Â Please note that the lists circulating around the internet in the past day were not final – so you may want to update your information with what we have here. Ã‚Â Also note that this update may cause incompatibilities between the incorrect version of Dead Island that was released and the fixed version and cause a wipe on saved games. We tried every avenue possible in order to avoid fans having to wipe their saved games and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s important that fans are made aware of this ASAP. Ã‚Â However, we have a solution to help regain some quest progress: Ã‚Â When the game opens, select New Game -> Select the same character as you were using before, and then there will be an Ã‚Â option for “Chapter Select” which will allow the player to jump to the last chapter they were playing in.
Ã‚Â· Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Third, Deep Silver plans to announce a Ã¢â‚¬Å“make upÃ¢â‚¬Â to fans who were affected by the day 1 PC issues, stay tuned in coming days for those details as internal discussions are ongoing on our end.
Ã‚Â· Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Fourth, the Bloodbath DLC is still on schedule as planned Ã¢â‚¬â€œ fans who preordered the title will still receive the Bloodbath DLC when it launches (date TBA shortly!) as stated previously.
Ã‚Â· Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Fifth, we are aware of The Ripper activation bug which will not load as a result of the version update and this will be fixed in the next game update, coming soon.
