As any Dead Island fan can tell you, it’s not the game’s technical polish (or, in the case of the PC version, stability) which draws friends together for zombie-based carnage. Developer Deep Silver has resolved many of the initial bugs and glitches since the game’s release, but there’s a new patch out today which fans should take note of. In addition to increased stability for co-op and technical improvements, there are also a ton of core gameplay mechanics refinements. We’re not going to list them all, but here are a few highlights:
- Level cap raised to 60
- The kick ability now requires stamina to use (no more spamming the stomp)
- Weapon crates now contain improved rewards
- New weapon mods have been added
There are just some of the more dramatic details of the update. All of the patch notes can be read here.
