Next Island got a massive 370 Mb download and the NI notes have just been posted on the NI Facebook page. I'll copy it here.
This is all awesome. NI is probably one of my favorite places to play in EU, with great music and areas/graphics. Sadly, even with this massive update there, you still cannot loot ANY. Repeat, ANY SINGLE ACTUAL 'ITEM'. Honestly, I had to stop hunting it because of the lack of any potential excitement which comes with item loots.
If they would just even add generic ESI, which is available everywhere else in EU, to NI, I'd go back.
