Dead Island DLC is — Wait for It — Delayed
In a startling predictable addition to the debacle that has been the launch of Dead Island, the upcoming Bloodbath Arena DLC pack has been delayed.
Apparently, it’s not the DLC that needs tuning and polishing, though — it’s the main game. You know, the Dead Island that was shipped a month ago and remains a mess. They’re using the opportunity of releasing the DLC to sell you to fix the game they already sold you.
Sorry, allow me to disengage my cynicism, because this is a good thing. Dead Island could certainly stand to be patched up even more than it already has. Techland might be a little late in dealing with these troubles, but at least they’re getting attention.
As for the DLC, there’s no new date for Bloodbath Arena, which includes something like Horde mode (isn’t the whole… game… a Horde mode?) and new equipment for you to introduce to the brain cases of the undead. Goody.
