Dead Island Console patch inbound

I thought I would share this as I love dead Island. I have to say looking at the changelog, I am very impressed. It is mainly balance fixes to the game but take a look at the list.

Quest and reward fixes implemented

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.
