Early Access-spel

Få omedelbar tillgång och börja spela; bli inblandad i detta spel medan det utvecklas.

Notera: Detta Early Access-spel är inte färdigt och kan eller kan inte komma att ändras ytterligare. Om du inte känner för att spela spelet i sin nuvarande form, bör du vänta för att se om spelet fortsätter utvecklas mer. Läs vidare

Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

Varför 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!”

Ungefär hur länge kommer det här spelet att vara i Early Access?

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

Hur är det tänkt att den fulla versionen ska skilja sig från versionen med Early Access?

“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.”

Hur är det nuvarande läget i versionen med Early Access?

“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.”

Kommer spelet att prissättas annorlunda under och efter Early Access?

“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.”

Hur planerar ni att involvera gemenskapen i er utvecklingsprocess?

“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!”

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.

Early Access-recension
My first impression of the game was it seemed too cliche as there are so many zombie-related videgames in the market nowadays. However, you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

I love this game simply because it has both co-op and PVP modes; something that always draws me in a game. Since it's still in beta mode, I cannot wait to play the actual finished product. So far I've had tons of fun, and it's always nice to level up and gain items for your character/s.

My only concern is that this game probably won't be as much fun as it is for me if you don't have someone to play it with (as with most games, really). Also, since it probably doesn't have a large demographic yet, sometimes the queue takes a while.

Overall, I would recommend this game to everyone who likes killing zombies with friends really.

Overall rating ( 8/10 )

Interesting concept with versatile playstyle of your preference (Melee & range) and numerous characters to choose from each having their own unique skills. The game is quite fun and the community occasionally gives you moments to smile about.

Some people hate it, others love it: I count myself to the latter group, because DI:E offers quick matches, long-term motivation to craft new weapons and it gets quite challenging once you reach a certain level. It's both free and still in beta, so we get to see some nice patches in the future. Unlocking new characters needs quite some farming, but hopefully the prices will drop partially. So why not recommend it? Crafting a level 15 weapon would take around 10 hours of farming in PvE, whereas you could simply buy it with real money for less than 5€. Sounds fair? Not at all. Thanks for the 50 hours of free entertainment, but that's all I will spent in DI:E for now...

Very fun and addicting game. It has changed A LOT since i started playing. Some for better, some for worse. But considering how it's still in BETA, I have even more faith that the game will only continue to improve. For anyone who says it's "pay to win" is a liar. They made their micro transactions very balanced and it is more than possible to become as powerful as you can get without spending a penny (like me). Let's go over some Pros/Cons.

Pros:
1.Fun and addicting, easy to learn
2.Balanced progression that is steady and doesn't hit a wall very often
3.PVE and PVP modes offering tons of different play styles
4.Several characters that are all balanced in their own fun and interesting ways
5.Tons of weapons and weapon mods to suit anyone's play style
6.Varying difficulties to suit you current level

Cons:
1.PVP is NOT noob friendly and low level players often screw over the high level ones
2.Matchmaking system is still rather garbage at times
3.Not too many characters are viable in PVP
4.The fact that an extremely low level player can still join high difficulties....... (FIX THIS)
5.The occasional lag spikes that are completely server related (this may be fixed soon)

All in all, I highly recommend!!! Have fun slaying zombies

Have to say I love this game.

This game has a very high impact on player skill. People say play 2 win, but then again, people don't really understand the P2W term. If you take a bad player and give them crap and they become op, then fine, P2W. I've only purchased an additional character and still can be top on the zombie kill ratio. I haven't seen any of the P2W guys out there in the many many matches I've done so far.

Anything that you can buy you can also get just from playing. So if you don't want to spend money to advance, then fine, just requires a few more hours of playing.

Now, that also being said I don't really do the pvp right now. I'm sure you can face abit more formidable people in there. I've tried it one match and didn't really die over and over, but wasn't on the top team either.

In the end, enjoy the game for what it is. If you've come here for fantastic graphics and a good story, then look elsewhere. But if you just want to fight with monsters, zombies, and other players, for a completely free and addicting game, then you've found a good spot.

Very cool game, I do wish it was a regular, pay $19 bucks and play everything, but at least at level 10 I haven't had to spend a dime and already have a few hours into it. I can see that probably changing, but so far, its been a blast, they mixed a few genre's together. I haven't done the PvP yet, I heard the match making takes a bit, but PvE has been fine.

If nothing else give yourself a cool 5 hour treat for free!

---- Update after 8 hours of play
I'll still leave it at a thumbs up, but it is getting really grindy after a while. There isn't enough gear, or enough variety, the stuff doesn't work differently enough, and it needs better pacing. I even had some of the bonus exp stuff from starting off, and it was still slow going and very repetative. This only has longevity through the grind if you have friend playing it, and if you, then you may enjoy it longer.
