Poznámka: Tato hra dosud není dokončená a během vývoje se může výrazně změnit. Pokud Vás hra nyní nezaujala, zkuste počkat, až bude v další fázi vývoje. Více informací zde.

Zpráva od vývojářů:

Proč předběžný přístup?

“There is no better way to gain valuable feedback and concrete suggestions than by allowing you guys to actually jump in and have at it so we decided that Steam Early Access is the best way for us to achieve this - just jump in, tear those zombies a new one (or two!) and we'll take care of the rest - or better yet, drop us a line and give us your feedback, we'd really appreciate it!”

Přibližně jak dlouho bude tato hra v předběžném přístupu?

“We've just hit open beta and we hope to be out of Early Access early next year.”

Jak se bude plná verze lišit od předběžného přístupu?

“As we've done so far we will continue to take your feedback and improve on the game, adding new features & modes that we see you guys will enjoy! We'll be re-balancing characters & weapons as we progress too, to make sure its the fairest experience with everyone.”

V jaké fázi vývoje se hra nachází?

“The game has just moved into Open Beta, bringing with it the first iteration of our brand new PvE mode: Crossroads which sees you and a three team mates set up camp in the morning and carry out four different randomly generated missions over the course of a day on ever changing maps. The missions range from freeing trapped survivors, gathering supplies, to fighting off hordes of zombies, defeating bosses and more.

Crossroads also awards and tracks your performance and scales the difficulty of the next mission accordingly. We've thrown some new zombie types into the mix as well and have added an all new zombie attribute system - from ranged damage resistance to faster running, harder hitting zombies, you will have to adapt how you fight the virus.”

Změní se cena hry po skončení předběžného přístupu?

“The open beta free to play with no purchase of early access packs now necessary to get access and we will continue this for the full game release later.”

Jak plánujete zapojit komunitu do vývoje této hry?

“We'd love to hear your feedback on this first version of Crossroads and as such we've added a link to a survey in the game, but as ever you can provide us with feedback on the Official Dead Island: Epidemic & Steam forums. We're continually working on adding new features & content and we’ll be constantly working on balancing and of course improving gameplay based on your feedback - along the way we’ll be intently listening to your suggestions, criticisms and as always: ideas for EVEN MOAR INSANE WEAPONS!”

Time to DI:E

Dead Island: Epidemic is a multiplayer action hack & slash arena. Players duke it out over supply points using an arsenal of crafted weaponry, a bevy of devastating powers, and good old-fashioned teamwork. And yeah, we've got zombies too - so there's that.

Co-Operate or Compete


It's you versus them. Or you versus them versus them versus them.

We’ve got two core modes – either team up with 3 other survivors and take on the zombie menace together in PvE co-op Crossroads mode, or take the fight to other players in our three-team "PvPvPvE" Scavenger mode where you'll battle it out in a competition to grab supplies, hold key points, outsmart the competition and blast through hordes of zombies.



Fight for your survival in our PvE-mode Crossroads. You set up camp in the morning and carry out four different missions over the course of a day in ever-changing maps and mission types. The missions range from freeing trapped characters and gathering supplies, to fighting off hordes of zombies or defeating bosses. Zombies have different attributes and change the way you fight them: From range-damage resistant to faster running, harder hitting zombies - you will have to adapt how you fight the virus.
Crossroads also rewards and tracks your performance, scaling the difficulty of the next mission accordingly.


“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” – at least for a while

Epidemic’s PvP-mode pits three teams of 4 players each against each other in zombie-infested maps. The third team adds a new dynamic to this competitive mode and requires you to re-think your winning strategy: Do you build up enough of a lead to win before you are being dismantled by two teams? Or do you play it smart and align your goals with one of the adversary teams temporarily? The goal is to capture and hold strategic points and gather as many resources as possible to be victorious.

Combat




Take direct control of your character with the WASD keys plus mouse input and react to situations on the fly by switching between melee and ranged weapons.



Build and adjust weapons to your playstyle:

  • Earn blueprints from six different categories and build your weapon arsenal
  • Most weapons come with unique features and fit a specific role
  • You also earn weapon modifications which can be installed on to your weapons and add various attributes



From rotund, fanny-pack wearing badass tourists to redheads wielding weaponized crabs – and everything in between. Epidemic has a constantly expanding roster of unlikely heroes supporting varying play styles - whether you like your action up-close and personal, at range or through supporting your teammates.
Each character has an array of (often very bizarre) skills with which to wreak havoc - use these strategically in order to inflict maximum punishment on both the undead and those-you-want-to-be-dead.

Když jsem si tuto hru koupil, jo, jako většina lidí mně upozorńovala že si ji nemam kupovat, že je to podle nich na... všichni víme na co, ale když jsem si ji koupil, nainstaloval a spustil, tak jsem se hodně divil, protože je to opravdu skvělá hra. Nejvíce se mi ale na této hře líbí ten pohled. tím myslím ten skvělý pohled ze shora. Právě kvůli tomuto pohledu se mi hra zalíbila. Ano, je to zvláštní, ale je to tak. Hra má ale také výbornou grafiku, skvěle propracované zombie, efekty a ty ostatní věci jako například stromy, auta, kameny, domy... Také jsou tu ale dobře zpracovaní lidé a jejich velmi lehké ovládání. Lidé? Ano, tím myslím vlastně lidi, jako člověka za kterého můžete hrát, ale i také za ostatní lidi, kteří nejsou zombie a kteří vám pomáhají. Také tím ale myslím i obyčejné hráče. Hra má hodně zajímavý příběh. Jestli jsem to dobře pochopil, tak jste stroskotali a přistáli na ostrov plný zom... radši nic, nechte se překvapit. Velká výhoda je ta, že má tato hra spoustu dalších dílů, takže se můžete zabavit na hodně, hodně a hodně dlouho. Kdybych měl tuto hru ohodnotit, tak bych dal: ''★★★☆☆''.

Pros

+Not a Pay to win game, all characters, weapons and other items are obtainable by hard work playing the game itself
+PVE mode offers a bit of a open world experience
+PVE mode offers challenge from deadly difficulty onwards
+Characters equipment can be customized depending on the users choice
+Has a lot of character in roster to choose from with unique skills and passive abilities
+Not so toxic community so far
+Daily reward for PVE if you finished a game and PVP if your team wins

Cons

-Some characters are expensive when purchased using in game money
-Duplicate drops of weapons and mods could be annoying to some people
-May experience random lag sometimes and Red Ping on Asian countries
-PVE could get boring as you play it repeatedly
-Long waiting time for both PVE and PVP sometimes
-Deadly and Endemic mode difficulty in PVE is sometimes impossible to get all gold because of overpowered creeps
-If someone got disconnected in PVE it means your team could either get silver to nothing and there is no compensation (like weakening the creeps) for loosing a player while in game
-PVP is currently messed up there is no ranking system of somekind to sort things out since the population of this game is considered small so far
-Sometimes there are fixed teams (group/party) in PVP that farms players with teamates who they randomly meet because of the system of the game and the odds of winning against them are quite low especially if your team mates are lowbies even the game mechanic is 4v4v4
-Reports of cheaters in game but they are not widespread at this moment
-less items,weapon in shop

Techland picks up the brand zombesco Dead Island, transforming one of the most interesting survival horror of this generation in a MOBA, or rather in a Zomba. Player vs Player vs Player vs Environment is the strange formula adopted by the team, which seems to be able to take unexpected and interesting folds. In terms of gameplay this is therefore a title completely different.

A game with no lasting appeal.
While its fun for a hour or two, you quickly realize there isnt any depth or complexity to it, the oversimplification of the game concept its based on leads to an uninspired and highly repetitive experience.

+pretty
+runs great, great optimization
+fun item designs
+casual dfiablo + lol


-lol not dota, a simplified version of a simplifies game just dosnt work
-diablo inspiration ends at fighting zombies and the way combat works, no loot or gold drops make the game even more simple
-no item or resource management during a match
-no communication in the team, games are too short and too chaotic for it
-combat lacks depth
-no item drops during PvE mode, would be a great way to make things more interesting
-too repetitive
-tiny maps for PvE, too big ones for PvP
-grind fest

-Quick Review-
Dead Island: Epidemic is a zombie survival game developed by Stunlockstudios, the game is played in over-the-head 3rd person view, you have a choice between 20+ playable characters (only about 5 can be played from the start, the others you need to buy or unlock).

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: You play as one of the infected on Amaia Island, apparently "the virus is making [you] stronger, smarter". And that's about where the story telling ends; you're running errands for someone named John Sinamoi (who was apparently in the first Dead Island game) and you're all working together to survive the zombie hordes.

Game Play: At this time there are a couple game modes I'll just call "pvp" and "pve". in PvE you're fighting against zombies with three other people and doing various tasks for John Sinamoi; sometimes you're collecting supplies, other times you're hunting down a boss zombie. In PvP you're against other players, generally in a 3 way tug-of-war free-for-all.
You do start the game with a single player tutorial to help you get the general idea for the game, upon finishing that tutorial you get taken to your "Crib". Which will be your most familiar screen, because in the Crib you craft weapons with loot you've picked up, you can purchase new characters, select characters, and generally access your inventory.

Achievements: I haven't been feeling competitive enough to start working on these achievements(05/09/15), I would say there are really two categories for the achievements: the grindy ones, and the lucky ones.
Many achievements unlock at different tiers, for example "Kill 100 zombies" and "Kill 1,000 zombies", and it keeps going up in higher intervals. That achievement is for: Scavenger games, PvE Missions, Blueprints, Crafting weapons, Zombie kills, and player kills.
For the "lucky achievements", you need to win games, or accomplish specific goals that you will either get lucky with or RNG or playing with other friends who are trying for like-minded goals. Examples would be: "Kill 10 Zombies with one attack/skill", "Win a Scavenger mission with at least 200 supplies ahead of the other teams", "Win a Scavenger mission without dying" and many more. To make matters tougher, scavenger missions are the PvP ones, ergo; if you're playing with pug groups. You might be with brilliant players, or noobs.

Price: Dead Island: Epidemic is a free to play, however many of the features in the game will require extensive grinding, or using real life money to unlock. This is a turn-off for most gamers.
A number of people have argued with me over the semantics of "Free to play" and "Pay to win", honestly I don't see the point; because when I think "pay to win" I think facebook app games. You have access to all game modes on Dead Island: Epidemic, yes to unlock the best stuff you can just pay money to skip to the top, but the features seem conceivably obtainable, and in PvE mode you don't need to subject yourself to brutal noob-acide that you would probably experience early in the game, on PvP game modes ...before you have better weapons.

Conclusion: I've always felt that I can't tell people "no, don't try this game!" When it's free. If you're looking for more games to play on steam, here ya go. However beware that you can purchase features in the game with real life money. So Naturally the rich-kids have a very strong advantage over the rest of us.
I hesitantly recommend this game for people who enjoy Dungeon Crawlers, Zombie games/ Left4Dead, 3rd person overhead game play, or people who want to play a free game (financial restrictions).

DIE is a fun mix between Alien Swarm & modern MOBAs.

f2p beta, but seems to be a TRUE beta (not like the current fashion of barely Alpha material being labeled this and that), in that most of the core is already there and working quite well.

the UI is great. styling is cartoonish, humorous and easy on the eyes. artwork is fantastic (taking some pages off the book of league of legends). i feel as tho there's way too much orange everywhere and there needs to be a lot more diversity in colors.

there is quite a grind involved, and the "sexiest" champs you can own are quite expensive. starter champs pack quite a punch doe. still, could be problematic once you hit PVP, and there's no way of testing new champs before unlocking.

copying existing champs in Armored or Mutated forms isn't a good look for the game's devs. reeks of laziness. i don't know the development history - it might've been just a move to rush the game on beta/steam with microtransactions, and creating completely new champs would've taken too long at the time...

PVE consists of very short (10 mins~) sessions that may seem repititive, but turn out to be rather addictive, filled with lots of randomness & casual fun (i've heard the fun turns into tryhard mode when you hit deadly difficulty, can't wait).

....

don't have enough experience within the game to judge it's monetization plan or weapon/champ balance. will edit the review in the future.

It's a really good game, it has a lot of potential, the scavenger mode is a 3 teams playing at the same time and it involves much of both strategy, gameplay and some politics as well. You will find yourself making a temporary alliance with another team just to beat the winning team.. only to be betrayed (or betray them) at the final moment...

The community is mostly supportive and the devs are constantly fixing and upgrading the game. It still has stuff to polish (as expectable from a game still in Beta), but the game itself is fresh and overall very fun, with a lot of strategy in mind. At the current point of the review the game is kinda harsh on newcomers, but with some patience (and specially if you've played other MOBA's before) you can get to stand in a decent higher ground pretty quickly (I've witnessed it, played with friends for the first time,and about 2 months later they were now among the top players).

No P2W, you can get mostly everything of the game for free, paying just unlocks characters faster and can get more crafting stuff and keys faster. It doesn't guarantee you anything really, I've met players that have payed a lot and still suck and get owned all the time, against players that never payed anything. You can own the game and the pvp with any of the starting characters, and patience to learn the game and get decent gear. I'd recommend buying something if you like the game, even the cheapest pack, mostly to support the Devs and the game.

TL;DR: Like MOBAs? Like Kill Zombies? Like team up to bully other teams? Good game for you. no P2W. Try it.

This game is some kind of relax for me. Playing it with everyone and trying to help new ones. It's pretty good you find some levels like you. But the negatives are lags. Without lags it's fine. 9/10

Greetings my loyal readers and strangers of the internet. Who like reading page long reviews about games formed on the opinion of a single, self-righteous person? Don’t pretend, if you didn’t, you wouldn’t be reading this. LET’S JUMP IN!
The open beta for “Dead Island Epidemic” was something that caught my eye instantly. A famous franchise FPS zombie survival franchise making an RTS and then publishing an open beta? “Shut up and take my money!” I uttered, just prior to remembering that the game is free. I installed it quickly as soon as I found it and quickly made my way through the tutorial and began the gameplay. Does it live up to expectations? Let’s find out.
Dead Island Epidemic currently has 24 characters, all of which have very different skills and play differently. Or so I hear. Unfortunately, you can only unlock 1-4 of the starting character for free. All of the other 23 characters cost “character points” which are earned through both game modes. This being said, of my 11 hours (and counting), I’ve only unlocked 3 characters. This makes the game addictive but it is irritating that you’re not given the opportunity to test out other characters. I believe that perhaps it is a bit excessive for it to take hours to unlock even starting characters. Counting the “character points” I’ve earned, it would take me 9 hours to unlock all four of the starting characters. Which are the cheapest of all of them by far! I honestly think the system would be fairer if the player earned more points and the prices were increased for the more expensive. And furthermore, if it takes me 11 hours to unlock a mildly expensive character, let me trial them. Seriously, if there’s one thing missing from this game, it’s the ability to test character before you buy them. As a general rule, gamers don’t like wasting hours of their life (Or at least, not realising that they wasted hours of their life.) All of this being said, the character variation is fantastic. There’s something for everybody. Plenty of different variation of healers, initiators, carries, disablers, hunts, defenders and nukers that play differently and offer different experiences. Or so I hear.
The way the gameplay is structure in DIE (Holy crap, I just realised that’s an awesome acronym! Bonus points!!!) is based around a system of trials and reward. For both game modes, “Scavenger” (PVP) and “Crossroads” (PVE) after finding a match (During which, matchmaking varied from seconds to several minutes) you started playing. In “Crossroads”, the newer of the two game modes you and three teammates embark on three randomly generated quests which include missions where you protect your teammates, break down barricades, fight bosses, capture points, rescue survivors and even escort missions (Shudder). Personally, I believe that more missions would make crossroads a more in depth experiences. The better you do in the missions, the more rewards granted at the end of the match. Crossroads also contains varying difficulty levels which accommodates to both new and experienced players which results in even matchmaking so you rarely feel as though you’re a burden or the best player in the game. Personally, I think this is a great system, and it’s been done very well, limiting players to certain difficulties until the gather higher level equipment. Unfortunately, despite everything that the developers got right in Crossroads, they threw it all out the window in scavenger.
Just before we move on, I’d like to suggest that you allow people to compete in crossroads with varying number of players. Four is good, but I’d like to have larger and smaller parties. Just gonna throw that out there.
Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed crossroads, anybody who knows me can tell you I get bored quickly. It didn’t take long for me to get curious about the other game mode. That was a big mistake. Unlike crossroads, there is no different difficulty levels. No fair matchmaking. Literally nothing to prohibit a group of high level players with ridiculously overpowered weapons from being matched against a team of level 3 supports. And you know what? Yeah you do. You know what. You’re picking up what I’m throwing down. For you were blind, but now you see. The cat’s outta the bag now. You know what’s up, what’s going down. Everything’s clear to you now. There’s no need for me to say it. There’s legitimately no need for me to waste your time by telling you what happened when I team of level 3 supports joined a game with no appropriate matchmaking system. I’m not going to bother. Nope. I refuse. I’ll let you come to your own conclusions about what happened to me and the degree in which my team was destroyed. Go on, guess. Take a whack at it. A quick stab in the dark. Go on, I’ll wait. I’ve got all day. Really! I review games for fun, you think I have something better to do. Just guess. You guessed yet? Good. If you guessed utterly, you are correct, and win my undying respect. Well done. Anyway, in scavenger, three teams of four compete for the four control points around the map. When captured, these nodes drop supplies. The team that has the most supplies at the end of the game, wins. Boss zombies occasionally spawn and they, too drop supplies. In addition, supplies can be stolen from the opposition before they get back to their base. Sounds pretty basic but that game was a lot of fun. Of course it would’ve been much more fun if the matchmaking had been F*CKING BALANCED! I may be taking this too far, but it seriously felt like I was charging a man with a rocket launcher equipped with a slingshot. The map was well designed and the game mode requires great teammates and good co-ordination and was a great experience, even though I couldn’t take 18 steps without being brutally murdered. As soon as Deepsilver and Stunlock get their sh*t together, It’s obvious this is going to be an excellent experience.
Whilst I enjoyed both of the game modes, I would like to see some other game modes to grant more variation. I would like to suggest
1. A survival mode, where teams fight waves of zombies to survive. The longer they live, the better the rewards.
2. A survival versus mode, where players on different maps try and survive. Clearing waves first gives the opportunity to screw with opposition.
3. Slaughter mode, in which players compete with other players to see who can get the most kills
Before I rap this stuff up, I’d like to make some suggestions. You know, because I’m a self-righteous ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ who thinks he’s always right. I’d love to see some more depth in the character building aspect of the game. I’d love a passive skill tree. How cool would that be?! If you’ve read my review of Path of Exile, you’d know I do some crazy ♥♥♥♥ for a passive skill tree (Seriously, you can’t even fit that ♥♥♥♥ing thing on screen no matter how far you zoom out! It’s F*CKEN AMAZING!) I believe that adding a passive skill tree would give players more rewards for levelling up. Currently, as you’re profile progresses, the abilities your character uses get cool passive abilities but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. SATISFY ME, DAMN IT! I’m also not a huge fan of the current weapon system. Finding blueprints after completing a mission is satisfying and I the crafting system, but I believe that you should be able to find blueprints of varying levels, not just the one directly above yours. If you have a level 6 weapon equipped, you MUST craft a level 7 item before you can find level 8 blueprints.
(The rest of this review is in the comments, it's just too damn long)

DIE! Dead Island Epidemic for short features endless zombie killing fun and gore. The game starts you off easy and the game has a friendly community. I've enjoyed it for the every hour spent on it. It is truly amazing and hope next updates will make it even more epic.

An original addition to the MOBA genre. The PvP Scavenger mode has three teams battling out for supplies, first to fill their truck and leave wins. The PvE Crossroads mode has Bauer give you missions, which range from killing giant mutated zombies or capturing supply points, to gain supplies. In the closed beta, there was a mode called Scout which had you and your team running around, capturing supply points and finally killing the giant boss zombie, although I don't know if you can still play that mode. The only negatives on this so far is the element of pay-to-win with the consumables you can buy outside of matches, the grind to get characters if you don't buy them using the premium currency and the lack of servers. There is one for North America and one for all of Europe. Hopefully when it comes out of beta we'll have servers in Asia, South America and Oceania. Anyway I still think this is a great game and it gets a 8.5/10 from me. When the game expands I may make the score higher.
