Dead Island Steam Patch May Break Save Files

Following the rocky release of Techland's Dead Island, where an incorrect build was released on Steam alongside a massive first day patch, publisher Deep Silver has warned PC users that their saves may become incompatible following the update.

"We tried every avenue possible in order to avoid fans having to wipe their saved games...this update may cause incompatibilities between the incorrect version of Dead Island that was released and the fixed version and cause a wipe on saved games."

The publisher then offered some steps to possibly recover any lost saves: "When the game opens, select New Game -> Select the same character as you were using before, and then there will be an option for 'Chapter Select' which will allow the player to jump to the last chapter they were playing in."

On the bright side, Deep Silver is promising to "make up" for the blunder.
