Techland may have moved on to a new project and a new publisher, but that’s not going to stop DEAD ISLAND from becoming a franchise! Deep Silver is keeping it going, this time by moving it to a different gaming genre, as a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA)!
The game will be free to play and on PC only this time. We recorded quite a bit of VO for it not too long ago, and the videos of it we got to see look like a total blast! From Deep Silver’s website:
Dead Island: Epidemic is a Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena (ZOMBA!), a team-based action game centered on the struggle for control points and scarce supplies between opposing player factions on a map crawling with zombies. A game that makes it easy to jump straight into the action: there are no preset towers, bases or minions – to defeat the opposing teams, players must rely on their skills, their teammates, and the lethality of their own crafted weapons.
