Hvad udviklerne siger:

Welcome to Dead Island: Epidemic!

The game is currently in closed beta and fully-functional. You’ll find that we're already offering a polished & solid experience that's a ton of fun, however due to the nature of it being in beta please be aware that there may still be some bugs (help us catch 'em all!) and unfinished features. FYI: The zombie A.I is not a bug though, they're supposed to be a bit brainless - it's in their nature.
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!
The Early Access Starter packs that we are currently offering are intended for those who want to get into the zombie bashing early and to help us shape the future of the game. They also of course offer players a great starting kit and will grant a few nice exclusive perks - both right away, and when the game hits official open beta and later again at the full launch.
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!
We’re super glad if you decide to join us at this stage and we'll be happy to welcome you to the island!”

November-Update Teaser

Progression, Crafting and Loot Changes
Account leveling now fully incorporates the character progression. Leveling your weapons has been removed, with customization in the form of modifications added. Weapon expertises have been replaced with a passive ability. The loot system is less random with higher drop chances.

In addition to developing Crossroads we’ve been busy with changes to the progression, crafting and loot system. There’s a lot of stuff to talk about so be prepared for a lot of information! Let’s start with how the account progression has changed.


Account Progression Changes


The big news for account progression is that individual character leveling outside of matches has been removed! There will be no need to unlock the skills of each character separately; instead, all individual character progression has been moved into account progression. This means that new characters bought will have the same skills and augmentations available as the character you previously played, and that you’ll be able to change characters when playing with friends without lowering your strength or downgrading weapons. The change will result in improved matchmaking as you won’t have to face less skilled opponents because you changed character.

In addition there will be more rewards while leveling your account. The character unlocks have been moved into the account progression; when an augmentation for the Q-skill is unlocked, it’s for all characters. More consumables will also be handed out when you level your account; currencies have been removed as specific level rewards. The overall progression has been sped up to decrease the grind. Finally, specific modifications will be unlocked in the account progression. What are modifications? Well, that leads us to the…

Crafting System Overhaul


Weapon leveling along with workbench levels have been removed! With the new changes crafting a weapon will put it at its full potential and you’ll be able to craft and use it at the appropriate account level. The amount of weapon tiers has also been increased to make crafting an almost constant progression. As you progress towards the end-game content you’ll get to craft and customize lots of weapons. The new tiers will also smooth out the matchmaking as differences between tiers will be less significant.

Since character levels and leveling weapons will be removed, Unbound XP will disappear. Following that we will of course compensate every user that has paid to unbind XP with an equivalent amount of in-game Cash.

So what are modifications and what does it mean that you’ll be able to customize weapons? We were not satisfied with the feeling of crafting in the current system; in the new system you will be able to collect modifications. Modifications (or mods for short) are permanent unlocks similar to blueprints. An unlocked mod can be used on any weapon that has a suitable modification slot. Each mod has a unique effect. Here’s a few quick examples:

  • Bounty Hunter - Killing an enemy awards you with 5 supplies.
  • Scratch Shield - Damage taken from Walkers reduced by 10%
  • Acrobatics - You have a 30% chance to reset dodge cooldown when dodge is used.

This new modification system will grant an additional layer of depth to crafting. Some weapons have an additional innate modification that goes along with that weapon; a weapon perk. All Legendary weapons will have their own weapon perk unique to that weapon for example.

Additionally, we’ve both rebalanced tons of weapons and changed how stats works with them. Power and Vitality have been merged into a single stat. This change adds a clear difference between weapon tiers, and will balance out Glass Cannon/Tank builds a bit. The secondary stats, the weapon perks and the modifications will now determine if a weapon is offensive, defensive or a utility weapon. Feel free to use whatever weapon you want with whatever character you want, with the new...

Passive Abilities


Characters will no longer have weapon expertises; instead each character has a passive ability. This is to encourage you to use the weapon you feel the most comfortable with when playing a character instead of feeling forced to use certain weapons. Have fun customizing whatever weapon you want to fit your own play style, regardless of which character you play! You’ll get more weapons to choose from than ever before thanks to the...

Loot System Changes


The loot system will now consider your previous drops; if you haven’t gotten a specific weapon type for a while you will have a higher chance of getting that type. The randomness of the system has also been decreased overall, as there will be guaranteed drops if you haven’t received a blueprint or a modification for some time. At the same time, the general chance for receiving blueprints has been increased. If you receive a duplicate blueprint, that blueprint will be automatically converted into Account XP. As a final note, the amount of Gear Points awarded has also been doubled to encourage, among other things, more crafting and customization of weapons.

That was the final reveal. Look forward to Crossroads and these changes coming to Dead Island: Epidemic in the next few weeks!


TL;DR
  • Levels for individual characters have been removed: there is now a global character level that applies to each character. Unlocks apply to each character once you reach a new level
  • Weapon leveling and workbench levels have been removed
  • Weapon modifications have been introduced: Permanent unlocks similar to blueprints that can be used on each weapon – if it has a suitable slot
  • Lots of weapon balancing changes
  • Character weapon expertise has been removed. Every character now has a passive ability
  • Smarter drop system with guaranteed drops and less randomness

Om dette spil

World’s First ZOMBA
Dead Island: Epidemic is a multiplayer action hack & slash free to play game. Players will 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.




You have direct control over your hero. No Last Hitting, mouse-click-to-move nonsense here - it’s you, good ol’ WASD, and your trigger finger, making it easy to hop in, no muss, no fuss.
No idea what any of that means? No problem. All you need to know is that you need to point your crosshairs towards anyone and anything not on your team!



Team up with 3 other survivors and take on the zombie menace together in PvE co-op horde mode, or take the fight to other players in the unique 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.



Featuring a constantly expanding and varied roster of unlikely heroes with unique skills, Dead Island Epidemic offers you a host of play styles whether you like your action up close and personal, at range or through supporting your teammates. Each character has an array of 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.



Fan favourite Weapon Crafting is here from Dead Island, helping you get the edge (pun intended) on the competition and build an arsenal from hundreds of insane weapons to suit your playstyle! Featuring progressively more powerful and insane weapons in multiple tiers: From crudely crafted Spikey Planks to Electrified Double Spinning Sawblade Swords and literally everything in between: what’s better than a chainsaw for dispatching the undead horde? Well, how about a FLAMING CHAINSAW? Everyone knows machetes are cool, but DOUBLE FLAMING MACHETE GLOVES are better!
Whatever your chosen character, style of play and mental disposition - there’s a weapon for every occasion.

Be ready to play the most awesome Pay-2-Win MOBA in history of gaming!
Welcome to Mad Island Epidemic, where you can meet people of all nations and tell them what do you think about them, their skills or their country. Even LoL cannot compare with DI:E unbalanced characters! Make sure to quickly buy Sam B and Frosted pipe heavy weapon to be the most brutal and fearsome schoolboy in Amaia island!
The best and playable mode in this game is the Scavenger, where you put your 1337 skills in action. There are three teams, 4x4x4 players, and only one team will win by fully filling the supplies meter. Use your ultimate abilities on zombies as much as you can, because other enemy players is no threat to you - (c) (Approved by public randoms and premades). You see the enemy team winning and almost filled the meter? Well screw them, you can cooperate with the third team, and get the last chance to steal the winning team supplies from their own base, and get yourself reported for griefing, because cooperation with enemy team is forbidden! Wooh, this is so exciting!
What? Did you just get into the 3-survivor-Amber-team? Dont think that you are fukt yet, because this game is so unpredictable - enemy teams may fight each others to proove themself whose deek is bigger, while you can sneaky steal all supplies and win the round with awesome phrase "gg ez"!
And dont miss your chance to meet the legendary robart! :D lel
Totally would commend, 10/10, always updating, must have.

This game is sexy. All i can say is try not to create alot of items. only make the ones with the best perks and save up for teir 6. I dont mind the$10 i put into this game because ive had so much fun teaming up with others to knock down a boss with my sweet gear. i worked for my stuff big time. toons ive unlocked fit my play style nicely. It was never needed to send money and thankfully never ruined the game. they keep adding new stuff and toons for me to unlock so no problem there.

I'm not a big moba fan. I came for the co op. i'm more at home with pvp in a third person/first person kind of game but still like co op in those too, somtimes moreso. Thats why i screemed for joy when i first herd that the devs where talking about adding more Pve content because there was alot more people than they expected enjoying the pve from the game like i was!

It would be sexy if one day they made a mode where your group members have only one life and try to escape the island, or die trying. I guess I can settle with their idea though till some better game comes along or the devs give up trying to make the lot of us all convert to pvp. :D

My friend sent this game, so I gave a chance to that game and ... man, that game is EPIC ! After first mission (it was tutorial btw) I was addicted to it. Zombie games never get old and boring, it has got pretty solid graphic and good multiplayer, which is main domain of this game.
Only thing I don´t like about it is that it takes long time to find "Scavenger" mode, but classic "Horde Mission" mode game is found during few seconds.

People downvoting it because of p2w content , do not either know how to play , or have not played the game at all , i am 12 hours in , and this game is fantastic !! Theres a bit of a grind , but the loot is satisfying , also the cash part of the in game currency that has to be bought with real money is entirely optional , its used for unbinding xp ( will be removed in next november update ) and buying booster packs( completely optional , and in game progression is balanced , so unless you want it too easy you dont NEED those packs ) . Character points used to buy new characters , takes time to accumulate , but it will take a while for you to reach level 20 ( highest ATM ) with your starter character anyways . Gear points , used to buy missing parts and consumables comes in tons , each game will net you about 1k-2k points easily .


There are 3 types of modes as of right now :-

1) Scout , the solo horde mode
2) Horde mode , the co-op vs AI mode
3) Scavenger , the Team PvP game

Scavenger games are kinda tough to find , takes 10-15 minutes sometimes , but horde games are usually found within 2-3 minutes .

Movement is not mouse based like DOTA , but WASD , mouse is only used for attacking . This game is kind of like if DOTA and Diablo had a child :P . The skills are all balanced , and the gameplay feels fresh , plus theres zombies ... you can never get bored from killing zombies XD !!!

Graphics wise , its good looking and optimization is good as well so it should be playable on low end rigs as well .

The maps IMO are too less atm , but since its in early access beta right now , im sure they will add in more maps later on

Really looking forward to the november upgrade !!

Definetely recommend this free little gem to anyone who like MOBA's .

I don't understand how someone actually thought that the last update was a good idea. Since the home screen till the mission itself is a total downgrade. I will eventually play just hoping they have fixed this mess.
