This patch looks amazing. A raised level Cap, better metal chests rewards, better quest rewards and so on. This is one of the best patches I have ever seen in the history of gaming. I keep saying that this seems more like an expansion pack than an actual patch. I’ll be playing Dead Island when I get home.
Here are some of my Dead Island videos from YouTube. I am making a series called “Dead Island Quests” which will show all of the side quests, and what you get from doing them.
