Part of the blood-soaked horror game series set on a tropical island overtaken by the undead, Dead Island Epidemic drops players into an online multiplayer battle arena.
Dead Island Epidemic is a fast-paced action MOBA taking place in a world infested with a zombie out-break, leaving those stuck in the chaos to scavenge for supplies, craft their own gear, and fight for survival. Players can choose from three types of survivors including mutated survivors who possess special “zombie” abilities and use their bodies as weapons. DIE currently features 2 main game modes, Scavenge and Crossroads.
The core mode of Dead Island Epidemic, Scavenge, pits 3 teams of 4 players against one another, challenging them to obtain supplies by capturing and successfully defending key supply points on the map, or by tackling large boss-like zombies which appear around the map.
A successful supply run can only be accomplished by clearing out infected areas as a team. Solo players may often find themselves overwhelmed by incoming zombie packs and must make sure not to find themselves caught between the enemy and the undead. The game focuses on teamplay!
Action game - just like in other representativeness of the species - observed from the air. The creators of the original hits kept climate cycle Dead Island, moving the event to the tropical jungle and the sunny beach. Colourful design visual layer successfully contrasts with the post-apocalyptic atmosphere.
Similar to Stunlock Studios other titled, Bloodline Champions, players will control their survivor using the WASD keys while aiming their swappable melee and ranged weapons using the mouse. In addition to light and heavy attacks, players also have their own special abilities which they can level up during the match.
Similar to the original Dead Island titles, players in Epdemic can craft their own weapons by collecting blueprints and scrap pieces randomly awarded after each match. These weapons have their own stats and can level up with use, opening up new passives for the weapon. Decent, free production, which should be in your library of games.
