Dead Island: Deep Silver apologises for 'incorrect version' released

US copies to be fixed 'ASAP', other territories will get full patched version on Friday

Deep Silver has issued a full statement in response to disastrous - but quite funny - releasing of a development build of Dead Island on Steam today.


"We deeply regret that an incorrect version of Dead Island was inadvertently made available to players on Steam launch in North America," confirms Deep Silver, after gamers noticed several glaring issues with the build they downloaded, including the ability to turn off clipping and essentially fly through walls and around the game world.

It's also widely reported that the version released contains hints elements of what appear to be the Xbox build. Lol.

Deep Silver adds: "We are very sorry for any issues you may have experienced while playing the game-the correct, patched version will be made available to North American players ASAP. Other territories are not affected by this situation. The fully patched game will be available on Friday as announced."

But 'fully patch', we assume it means that EU versions will come with the massive 37-bulletpoint fix patch will be pre-applied before release. That would be nice.
