Vroegtijdige toegang

Ontvang onmiddellijke toegang en begin met spelen; raak betrokken bij dit spel terwijl het zich ontwikkelt.

Opmerking: Deze game in vroegtijdige toegang is nog niet voltooid en kan mogelijk wel of niet veranderen. Als je niet staat te springen om deze game in de huidige staat te spelen, kun je beter afwachten hoe het spel zich verder ontwikkelt. Meer informatie

Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

Waarom vroegtijdige toegang?

“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!”

Hoelang blijft deze game ongeveer in vroegtijdige toegang?

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

Hoe gaat de volledige versie verschillen van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“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.”

Wat is de huidige staat van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“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.”

Zal de game anders geprijsd worden tijdens en na vroegtijdige toegang?

“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.”

Hoe zijn jullie van plan de community te betrekken in het ontwikkelproces?

“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.

It seemed like they stoped developing it,
A gamebreaking bug that gets you stuck in a halfdead state after dodging and using nomand+friendly touch(respawn or reconnect doesn't fix it) mod hasn't been fixed although multiple guys reported this, that was 2months ago
It was fun before that though

TL;DR: Interesting concept but horribly realized. PvE is repetitive and grindy while PvP is repetitive, grindy and extremely unbalanced because of tiny and awful playerbase. Made me miss the flamers in traditional mobas. Yes, seriously.


The PvE game mode is repetitive and too easy until you've spent at least dozens of hours of grinding. About 50 hours into the game and I'm not close to reaching late-game despite being closer than other people I've seen who've played longer. Progression (getting better weapons) is really fast early-game and really slow later into it. Unlocking characters is also extremely tedious. 50 hours into it I have 5 characters - of which 4 are starters (one was free, the rest are cheap). If it was possible to get refunds for characters, I could refund all 5 and still not afford one of the most expensive characters. There are no free rotations or ways to get points faster other than paying.

The PvP game mode has several major flaws:
  • Low playerbase means no ranks, tiers or progression other than account level (which doesn't affect you other than which level gear you can use)
  • People with top tier gear can get into teams with people who have starter gear and don't use chat
  • Almost no one seem to take moba strategy seriously - people wasting an entire minute to chase someone instead of gathering points to win the game is common. Time efficiency is often neglected while character synergy is always neglected
  • Having three teams in a moba where you win by collecting supplies (essentially points) through supply points, zombie events and player killing makes for a horrible balance. I've often seen two teams get stuck in team fights that lasted several minutes (sometimes 5-10), letting the third team snowball and win easily. Sometimes two teams gang up on one, although that often ends in failure since getting kills is more important than objectives to this playerbase.

I've been keeping an eye on development since I started playing in closed beta, and I'm going to continue doing so. But given the current playerbase and boring game modes, I sincerely believe anyone would have more fun spending their time other places. If it's the simplicity of the game and focus on objectives that intrigued you, I'd rather recommend Heroes of the Storm or a non-moba action RPG like Path of Exile.

If you have something to add or there's something you disagree with, please comment so potential gamers get the full perspective.
