Kehittäjien kertomaa:

Miksi Early Access?

“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!”

Miten kauan Early Access -vaihe suunnilleen kestää?

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

Miten täysi versio eroaa Early Access -versiosta?

“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.”

Millainen on Early Access -version nykyinen tila?

“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.”

Hinnoitellaanko peli toisin Early Accessin aikana ja sen jälkeen?

“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.”

Miten yhteisö otetaan mukaan kehitysprosessiin?

“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.

I don't usually play MOBA's but this game assured me by it's goodness.

+ Pros
+Addictive, fun and easy to learn
+Characters that are fun to play on
+Good graphics
+Worth of some money (I haven't spend any)
+Anything you can buy, you can get by playing, it just takes few more hours.
+Constantly updated


-Cons
-If you don't have a buddies to play with in PVP, you are ♥♥♥♥ed. You rarely got a team that works together.
- I don't like the new UI as much as the old one, but I'm getting used to new.
- Low levelers can join high difficulties.

Eventually, I found this game really good, but all I can say: JUST TRY IT, IT'S FREE!

Dead Island: Epidemic
Dead Island: Epidemic was released on 20th November, 2014 by Stunlock Studios and Deep Silver on Steam while beta. At the time this review was released, Dead Island: Epidemic was free to play on Steam. It's currently only on English, but the Russian language was recently added, which can be accessed by selecting the Russian version of the game in the Steam settings.

Gameplay
The gameplay is well-designed and gives the player many ways to play. The game currently has 25 (including Rico) different characters to play with. It sadly possesses only a small amount of gamemodes, Starter missions, Crossroads and Scavengermode. The Horde mode was replaced with Crossroads, because many people disliked the same gameplay.
Starter missions
Starter missions are played with one player, so players can easily understand the gameplay, which is introduced in four different maps.
The rewards for playing starter missions are very low and not recommended for long playing. The maps are easy to play and they also are references to maps of the deleted Horde gamemode.
Crossroads
Crossroads possesses many different tasks each time played. Those depend on the difficulties, which need to be unlocked.
There are 5 different difficulties from Normal to Endemic, which increase the difficulty.
Crossroads is played with 4 players.
The rewards depend on the supplies gathered and the supply amount depends on the stars of three missions a match. Failed missions are punished with no or only a small amount of supplies, but the regular reward-amounts are normal.
Crossroads took place of Horde mode after many players gave their opinions.
Scavenger
Scavenger is played with three teams, orange, blue and green. Each team contains 4 players, so Scavenger has the maximum player-amount of 12 players.
Players have to gather supplies quicklier than the others by conquering as many supply points as possible, while the others do the same.
Supply bosses randomly spawn alongside with many special infected and regular infected on specific spots on each map.
Progresses are showed in the HUD.
There are three different extra tasks (first through barricades, first reach supply goal, first reach final supply goal).
The rewards depend on the supplies gathered and mostly the winning place (1st, 2nd, 3rd). The rewards are usually high.
The rest
Each character from 25 has their own skills, their own pros and cons and their recently added voice. Characters, who have other versions of themselves do however have the same main lines and voice-actors for example Isys and Armored Isys.
Each day, daily PvE (Player vs Enemy) and PvP (Player vs Player) rewards can be received. You only need to finish a match in PvE to get the small reward. In PvP however you need to finish a match while winning (1st place).
To avoid being stuck, the "concede" command is accessable by pressing the option in the menu. It starts a vote and yes votes have to overweigh no-votes in order to end the match immediately and get a drammatic small reward-amount. The daily reward however gets added.
Leaving a match without voting is punished with 10 minutes kicked from matchmaking. You can close the game, while the kicking duration goes on.
In Dead Island: Epidemic are account-levels, which allow players to receive bonuses depending on the level. Account-levels can be increased by playing.
Playing in a lobby gives players small amounts of bonus rewards. It also is a good way to decrease the matchmaking-duration, which is a current problem in the game. The amount of players in parties doesn't change the rewards' amounts.
The community is currently most in English. The community also is currently nice and helpful (helping others).
I sadly cannot put everything of the gameplay in this review, because the reviews possess a letter maximum. There's much, which waits to be experienced by you.

Pros and Cons
Pros:
  • many different ways to play (+45)
  • a good mix between funny and serious (+10)
  • nice atmosphere (+5)
  • nice graphics (+10)
  • an addicting effect (+5)

Cons:
  • little amount of gamemodes (+15)
  • long matchmaking durations (announced in the game itself) (+10)

Beta bonus:
  • beta (+10 (positive))

Last conclusion:
Dead Island: Epidemic is a funny, yet serious and addicting game, which wants you to keep on playing.
The pros definately overweigh the cons and due to it's beta it receives positive bonus points.

Good (8,5/10)
Pros: 75% + Beta bonus = 85%
Cons: 25% - Beta bonus = 15%
