Over on the official site, you can currently sign-up for the Dead Island Epidemic beta.
It’s a MOBA-game, and has the wonderful acronym “DIE”. Obviously you won’t be able to talk about it anyone if you do sign up, but you wouldn’t dream of doing that anyway, would you?
Dead Island Epidemic is a fast-paced action game where players will duke it out over supply points, using an arsenal of crafted weaponry, a bevy of devastating powers, and good old-fashioned teamwork.
What makes Epidemic different from other MOBAs? Well, it’s a ZOMBA!
Battle Royale: Epidemic’s core mode features 3 teams of 4 battling it out in a competition to grab supplies, hold key points, outsmart the competition and blast through hordes of zombies.
Booming Action: You have direct control over your hero. No Last Hitting, mouse-click-to-move nonsense here – it’s you, good ol’ WASD, and your trigger finger, making it easy to hop in, no muss, no fuss.
No idea what any of that means? No problem. All you need to know is that you need to point your crosshairs towards anyone and anything not on your team!
Craft Deadly Weapons: Fan favorite crafting is here from Dead Island, helping you get the edge (pun intended) on the competition and build an arsenal to suit your playstyle!
