Deep Silver proudly presents an expansion of the ground-breaking multiplayer experience found in Dead Island – Dead Island: Epidemic. In this game, players need to cooperate and team up to take on other teams of players while fighting back the zombie hordes. Are you ready to join the next generation of the outbreak?
- Zombies aren’t the only thing to fear – Players will square off against each other in 3 teams of 4 players, fighting both each other as well as a wide-range of zombies and freakish super-bosses, normal walkers to heavily infected creatures. Some will even require the cooperation of all 3 competing teams to take them down!
- The best kind of friend is one you make – Epidemic features an immense crafting system where players can forge their weapon arsenal of choice. There will be hundreds of weapons, trinkets and items that players can craft, and once crafted, these weapons can continue to be improved to fully suit a player’s personality and play style. Combining weapons and their effects and perks will offer an enormous range of possible setups and a new take on gameplay in this genre.
- All your base don’t matter to us – Unlike other MOBAs, the gameplay isn’t focused on attack the other teams’ base, but rather on fighting over control points and various targets strewn about the map. This provides shifting, dynamic gameplay as players constantly need to adapt their focus and occasionally team up with opposing forces throughout match play. Tackling dynamic gameplay objectives are key to success.
- Easy to sink your teeth in – Dead Island: Epidemic is intended to be an experience that’s easy to jump into, easy to play, but rewards commitment and intelligent teamwork. An action game first and foremost, Epidemic lets players dive in and get to bashing, shooting, and looting as quickly as possible.
