Rolled out last night, the patch aims to fix a wide number of issues and further tweak the core gameplay. Improvements have been made to both the gameplay itself as well as the user interface and co-op network performance.
The most obvious of the changes is the raising of the level cap from 60, which should give you a bit of a bigger bite when it comes to decapitating and de-limbing the undead.
An undead horde of changes have been made to the previously dreadful interface, although (at the tme of writing) we’ve not had a chance to test the new setup for ourselves. New weapon mods, XP adjustments and save game structure has also been altered.
Full patch details as follows:
Level cap raised to 60
New blueprints for weapon mods added
Infected damage reduced
Infected no longer interrupt player attacks
