Cosa dicono gli sviluppatori:

Perché l'accesso è anticipato?

“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!”

Per quanto tempo rimarrà in accesso anticipato questo gioco?

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

Quali saranno le differenze fra la versione completa e quella ad accesso anticipato?

“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.”

Qual è lo stato attuale della versione in accesso anticipato?

“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.”

Il prezzo del gioco varierà durante e dopo l'accesso anticipato?

“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.”

Come pensate di coinvolgere la Comunità durante il processo di sviluppo?

“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!”

Xian Mei has managed to survive thus far using her sharp mind and even sharper weapons, and she intends to keep it that way. She is a mobile burst damage character who jumps into the fray with her swords and deals massive area damage before disappearing amidst her illusions, leaving the enemies disorientated, out of position and shortly there after, dead.

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 didn't know what to write about in my review, so here's a recipe for pancakes instead:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted

1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Recensione della versione ad accesso anticipato
I hit 100 hours a few days ago. I deleted my old review I made, which was about 4 hours into the game, and have decided to make a new one based on what I now feel about the game.

Right off the bat I want to clear something up. Ready? This game is not pay2win . This point gets made every day in the forums and it is simply not true. Characters have imbalances, yes, but what game doesn't? Characters are not made OP just so people spend real money to buy them. Some new characters are actually quite weak, like Xian for example.

With that out of the way, I'll keep my points as points and just bullet point them.

Pros:
- Fun hack n slash gameplay, with MOBA esque skills.
- Removes the boring stuff from other MOBA's like LoL. In League, you have to wait 15-20 minutes to actually get into the actual part of the game with teamfights etc. This is fast paced from the beginning.
- Unique mode, Scavenger
- Nice character design
- At the moment, a small community. You can easily meet people and form teams together. (SEE "THE GREY AREA")

Cons:
- NEEDS a 2 team mode. The current mode is 4v4v4, which has issues, although fun, like how you have to rely on another team not teaming up with the other one.
- The UI is not as detailed as it needs to be. Not "as detailed as I WANT it to be", it NEEDS to be more detailed. You currently cannot see what buffs you have, nor any of your core stats.
- Crossroads, the other game mode, lacks variety, leading to a dull time (PvP scavenger is where the meat of the game lies though to be honest)

The Grey Area:
- Matchmaking. It is bad, yes. Tier 10 players are being matched with tier 16 players, which if you've played the game you'd know is VERY imbalanced. I cannot put this under the "cons" however, as it isn't the games fault as such. The game has a small player base at the moment. Because of this, matchmaking is bad.
- The community. Part of it is a pro. Some people in the game are really nice people. Some people on the Steam forums are also really informative, helpful and nice. But as with all MOBA games, Screaming, angry 12 year olds are present. It's an issue that has plagued LoL and DOTA, so again, I blame the genre for attracting these idiots (somehow), not the game itself.

Overall, would I recommend the game to someone? Of course. This and TES:Oblivion are the only games I have truly been "addicted" to. I have been really into games, like LoL and Fifa, but not addicted. Because of this, I really want this game to succeed. For this to happen, it needs more players. Even if you don't like traditional MOBA's, give this game a shot. It's free. If you dont like it, delete it and move on. But give it a go.





And pls remember it's in beta.

I was very skeptical of this game because i really did not enjoy any of the dead island game, but this games bring new fun to the moba genre. It is freash and different from your typical mobas like dota and lol starting from game modes to controls. You actually move your character with WASD key and use skills with QERF, also you are able to carry 2 weapons. Melee weapon and a ranged weapon. Auto attack are done in top to bottom shooter like the new tomb raiders game so it takes skill to kill someone too. The game rewards you pretty nicely per lvl and progression system is done well too. Devs also added crafting system to craft your items instead of buying them, if u have the right materials and the blue print of the weapon.
All in all, it is a good game to try out if you are tired of the typical mobas and wanna try something freash.

Tho seems like more people need to play this game...not enough people are playing pvp mode and have to wait quite a bit to find a single pvp game

This game is absolutely addictive.
Be ready to empty your wallets because this game is absolutely amazing.
So i gonna say what ive encountered during these 30+ hours of awesomenous.

Pro's:
Scavanger PVP variety of 3 teams of 4 people makes it somehow competetive.
I see Dreamhack or MLG potential in this game.
Teamwork is active by communicating with emotes and type.
Not pay2win.
Pay 2 unlock things earlies boohooo prices are cheap as ♥♥♥ you greedy man.

Con's:
No Voip
Afk's
Inpopular "meaning in reach of your friends" they know the game for example they don't.
Its a choatic game like LoL and Dota 2 so be ready.
Unbalanced infection level.

for an open beta moba, this game is polished and boasts extremely fun gameplay dynamics. nonetheless, it is not a LoL/Dota clone, but more of a hack-slash / 3rd person shooter / ARPG hybrid. the hero designs are cool, with skills and graphics that gel really well together. the action is fast, with fantastic rhythm.

gameplay is in teams of 4; and you can arrange with friends in lobby. in PvE there are mission objectives to kill zombies, rescue civilians, defend a supply point, or grab supplies and run. in PvP it's 3 teams free-for-all, where the key to winning is gathering sufficient supplies rather than simple K/D/A or destroying a base. it's a bit of capture-the-flag, defend supply points, be first to kill a super zombie, and stealing enemy supplies (after trucks are filled). suffice to say, the dynamics are very fresh and challenging.

once you start learning your first character, you would be thrilled and thinking, "this sh*t can really go places!" that, incidentally, is what got most of us hooked. of course, not everything is perfect yet, but given time and a steadily-growing playerbase, i am confident that DI:E will make it as one of the better (if not the best) f2p games on steam.

try it out -- i guarantee you will love it.

D'aww, this game.. I played it for nine minutes just so I could leave this review, to say I wish my internet service provider actually provided me a usable service so I could play this..

[I /did/ play the 9 minutes, though.. They ask for your email address and then you're good to go! I run an elderly laptop from 2007 and still got almost-playable framerates with all the bells/whistles turned all the way off, which is a /great/ sign, that it's versatile enough to run on this old beast without making it catch fire.. The game is basically "Torchlight and Dead Island had a baby, and this is it!", which isn't a bad thing at all. Even reduced to their worst the graphics were still pretty impressive.. I slapped some zombies with a boat paddle, fired off a couple special moves, smashed a fence, and then quit the game to come write this :) And as I said above, I'd /love/ to sink more time into this, but..]

My ISP has started restricting Steam specifically over the past few months, so that you can't log in to /any/ Steam service, through the client or through (all of the) web browsers.. And when Steam /isn't/ blocked the net is still total trash for online gaming.. I'm just lucky enough to have one of their old/obsolete plans where I get violently throttled once my 10gb data cap is reached, instead of forcefully charged a 10 dollar fee and given another gigabyte of data..

If you have to pay 10 bucks per gigabyte to your ISP to continue to play an online game/MMO over the course of 30 days, doesn't that make /ALL/ online gaming "pay to play"?

I miss my dial-up internet from 1999.

DI:E is worth hundreds of hours of free fun! Very well done and well balanced, also incredibly polished for an open beta game. I've experienced no crashes, glitches, or problems in almost 60 hours of play. Matchmaking has been incredibly fast so far, and even in 12 player scavenger mode I've never waited for more than 4 minutes. 4 player crossroads mode is pretty much immediate all the time.

With free games you always have to address pay-to-win. The gameplay in DI:E is hardly affected by the aspects for which you can pay real money. I never pay anything and I have no problem acquiring things or keeping up with other characters around my account level. What I LOVE is that you earn "character points" after each game, which means that it is possible to purchase EVERY character without paying any real money - it would take a crazy long time but it's possible. I actually find this far more generous than most free games that use microtransactions!

The gameplay itself is smooth and engaging. There is enough variability so far in the terrain/maps and enemies that I've never been bored or felt like I was repeating too much by playing many games consecutively. I think they've even been adding dialog/audio during my few weeks of playing (or they had already scripted and recorded a ton) because I'm still hearing the mission-givers say new things. The skills are well balanced and level up with you in standard moba fashion and you don't have to spend too much time getting your character ready before jumping in and playing a bunch of games. I love the control you have over the loadout of your character, customizing your weapons and consumable items for each situation and watching your "power rating" increase as your account levels up and your items become stronger. According to the achievements I have at least hundreds more blueprints to find to craft various weapons and gadgets. Between the awards for levelling up your account and the rewards after each mission I'm still getting new types of consumables too. It would be great to see the availability of items in the store change as your account levels up - at level 39 not only do I own all the blueprints that are available in the store but they're far below the gear that I'm using and have available.

TLDR; this game is a lot of fun for free, definitely worth playing and not ruled by p2w

This game is very good, if you like Zombies and cooprative teamwork then this game comes high;y recommended. The Boss fights in PVE missions are as awesome as they are tough! Crafting with blueprints yoou have found also makes the game more dynamic in terms of weapons used and tactics. If you are reading this review and perhaps think i am a fanboy, i am not i don't normally like this style of game but this one has things right for the most part although it is in beta and ofc you can expect game/item balancing etc when it comes to Alpha. Doo yourself a favour and try it, if a friend has a copy in their steam library and see how fun it is. I would give this game a stroong 7/10.

I played dead island, Riptide, and now this. The dead island world you know and love met leage of legends and you get this.
The only thing this game needs is a lot more characters. Also, it can be hard to find a game. Which is dumb because this is a great game. It just needs more players and exposure. I rate 9/10 for what it is.

It's a really good game, I'd recommend anyone to at least try it.
You'll like it more and more as you play and win new weapons.
It's not that hard to reach the end-game gear but it's very satisfying when you get those sweet legendary drops.
