Dead Island Bloodbath Arena DLC Delayed
Dead Island's first downloadable content will arrive later than expected. Developer Techland says that development of the DLC has been stalled due to their work on fixing the game itself.
"We are working hard to make the Bloodbath Arena DLC available as soon as possible," reads an update on the Dead Island Facebook page. "However, due to further polishing of the main game the finalisation of the DLC code has been delayed. We know that many fans are eagerly waiting for it and apologise for any inconvenience. We expect to announce a release update next week."
The Blood Bath DLC adds a Sonic Pulse grenade as well as four Arenas in which players must fend off endless waves of zombies. The Arenas can be played in single-player or co-op. Whatever XP or items you earn in Blood Bath will carry over to your campaign. The content is free for pre-order customers. It's not clear how much everyone else will have to pay
Dead Island is an open-world action game set on a zombie-infested island resort. Players choose from four different characters and must help other survivors while also trying to find a way off the island. They develop their skills over time by earning experience points.
Many reviews of DI focused on the large amount of bugs that the game shipped with. For example, some quests were impossible to finish and the A.I. was a bit screwy. Techland released a patch on the game's launch date with over thirty different fixes. It seems they're not quite done smoothing out the game's wrinkles, though.
