We are aware of this mix up by whoever printed these codes for a completely different game from a different publisher and are working on a best possible solution to help affected players and retailers.

The issue has since been resolved, but it makes you wonder if this was an act of love by the gaming gods. I mean, I'd take Dark Souls over Dead Island: Riptide any day. Yes, even with my short temper.
