Dead Island: Epidemic will be the next entry into the open world zombie series that sprung to fame with this amazing reveal trailer. Dead Island: Epidemic will not be a return to the tried and tested formula of the previous two games in the series but instead will be a free-to-play, PC Exclusive MOBA.
Epidemic will involve three teams of players competing against each other to survive the zombie hoard in what Deep Silver are calling a ZOMBA or “zombie online multiplayer battle arena”. Despite the dramatic change in genre we are assured the game will still “feature all the trademark elements that are part of a Dead Island experience.
Neither a developer or release date has been announced for the game but we can expect to hear a lot more about the game and hopefully see it in action at Gamescom in a few weeks. Deep Silver has also teased that even more Dead Island surprises could be revealed at the show.
