New Dead Island Patch On It's Way

Whilst Dead Island was a brilliant game, there was no denying that it was riddled with it's fair share of bugs. Thankfully, Techland have apologised for their mistakes with a large game update, which will be available to download on the 10th November. 

Tweaks and total changes have been made to the gameplay, the network's stability, controls, and much more. Many of the additions allow players to have greater control during zombie slaying time, so the frustrations felt by players before the patch (issues with Purna's ammo capacity being one) have been patched up.

Xbox360achievements.org announced the complete list of fixes contained in the patch, which you can see below.
