Hra s předběžným přístupem

Získejte okamžitý přístup a začněte hrát. Zapojte se do této hry již během jejího vývoje.

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!”

Defeat the mod contest

Hey survivors,

We've been reading your forum posts and are aware you are waiting for updates. Unfortunately there are some difficulties that need to be solved in the upcoming months so we apologize for the wait.

In the meantime we'll be running a few new events, first of which shall be named "Defeat the Mods Contest".

Our volunteer moderators who most of you already know will be playing Scavenger over the coming weeks at random times and random servers. Some of them will be even playing with a brand new character which should attract the interest of all the teams. And if you want to get your hands on Rico as well, keep reading.

Your goal here is to win the match against the moderators team using any means necessary ok not quite, can't be using any of unfair or unethical methods such as griefing or base camping and remember to keep the language nice and clean.

If you manage to play fair and win the match, you and your teammates will be rewarded with Rico, the brand new character for absolutely free.



Interested yet? Want to know who your targets are?

and potentially more...

Are the guys here you're buddies and you're a little hesitant to take them on? Well if you want to help them out and manage to win the match while on their team you'll be awarded Rico as well.

Wondering how you know the match will be counted towards the contest? Easy, the mods team will wear the Moderator Icon "M" next to their names.

We hope to see you on the battlefield soon.

You can discuss this contest on forum: http://steamcommunity.com/app/222900/discussions/0/537402115076264377

Cheers

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.

What an unexpected journey this was, I really enjoyed it. Spectacle battle against zombies in a beautiful island, what more do I need? Hahahahaha.

+) Numerous characters.
+) Mission variety.
+) Hilarious looking weapons.
+) No mana, only cooldown time.
+) How you can modify your weapon abilities.
+) A lot of details around the map.

-) They should've made weapon power(tier) modifiable as well.
-) There's only one map.
-) Bug and lag are serious. Sometimes you're the only one who can't see certain zombie.
-) You should be able to change difficulties of single player mode.
-) Even though I didn't want wider matchmaking it just hooks me up with other difficulty.
-) Game seems to be abandoned, dying, which makes you feel like you're wasting time.
-) There are only two servers.

Somewhere between ARTS, Hack ’n’ Slash, and the classic Dead Island zombie mayhem, there’s Dead Island: Epidemic.

The Game
As the game starts, having picked a starting character of your choosing, you are dropped into a short tutorial, allowing you to familiarise yourself with the controls and mechanics of the game.

Adepts of the ARTS genre will find themselves right at home with the overhead camera perspective and general controls, with the exception of the use of the WASD keys for character movement, rather than the usual right clicking to move to a desired destination (clicking is reserved for attacks- left click for a light attack, right click for a heavy attack, although the latter must be charged first via several light attacks).

Following a short tutorial explaining the fundamentals, you get to chose between PvE co-op or PvP co-op.
  • PvE: the old Dead Island grind-fest; progressing through a variety of missions (usually revolving around the collection of resources or elimination of enemies), unlocking blueprints allowing for better (and more maniacal) weapons to be crafted, as well as collecting character points, which serve as in-game currency to unlock further protagonists (with different stats and abilities) - This can alternatively be done with real money.

  • PvP: for those who would prefer measuring themselves to other player, along with the mindless undead, there is the Scavenge mode, where 3 teams of 4 players are pitted against each other in a race over resources. All items from PvE mode do carry over into PvP and character points can also be earned.

Good things, bad things- issues to be aware of, and a verdict
With the game currently officially considered to be in a beta state, certain issues are to be expected, and one would imagine that these will be ironed out as development moves forward, towards a finalised version.
Issues such as achievements not always validating, occasional bugs in matchmaking, and a lack of variety in playable content (partly responsible for making the game feel a little stale after a while) are all normal occurrences in an alpha or beta test version of a game.

With that said, it is however important to mention that DI:E is not necessarily plagued by the technical issues linked to its current stage of development, but by a much larger, and unrelated issue, which is reflected in the drop of active players over time: player support & community engagement.

By having a look at the game’s forums, it is hard not to get the feeling that development has hit a bump, somewhere along the road. Updates to the game have become a rare occurence, announced content has yet to be implemented, and the moderators/community manager(s) have yet to make any substantial impact on the situation. A couple of clumsily organised community events certainly haven’t remedied the overall feeling that development may have ground to a halt.

At the time of writing this, no official statement has been made regarding the future of the game.

Nevertheless, while not without flaws, it would be unfair to rate DI:E based solely on this, with the game being mostly Free-to-Play (with the exception of the aforementioned in-game purchases), there really is no reason why you shouldn’t give the game a shot today!

Is it fun? Yes, it is, and it can be quite addictive, especially when played with friends.
Is it perfect? No, however most problems can be fixed, and provided that development gets back on track, DI:E certainly has the potential to be an enjoyable game.
