Whoops: Steam Users Get Early, Buggy Build of Dead Island

Well, that explains why my PC version kept prompting me to use the right analog stick…

Dead Island, a 4 player co-op zombie survival game, was released today. Unfortunately for Steam users (like myself), we received an early version of the game that was not meant for distribution. There are bugs and crashes everywhere, and pressing Y turns on noclip. This build also has references to Xbox controls.

Thankfully, Techland recognized the issue and has said that they will have the correct Gold build up on Steam and other digital distribution sites later today. Hopefully this fixes the problems, because underneath the crashing, buggy mess that I played this morning lies a really fun game.
