Deep Silver has just released some interesting new game stills for their latest zombie game Dead Island: Epidemic. I know it looks like Diablo with zombies. Details so far are that Dead Island: Epidemic will be Free-to-Play for the PC and will support up to 12 players for the cool new concept ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena). What are your thoughts on this?
Dead Island: Epidemic, a new ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena) game set in the ever-expanding Dead Island universe. Dead Island: Epidemic will pit three teams of players against each other in a desperate fight for survival. Dead Island: Epidemic is a Free-to-Play PC title that will feature all the trademark elements that are part of a Dead Island experience."
CVG (computerandvideogames.com) learned that the game will support up to twelve players, that are split into four teams: "Each team has to battle both the other teams and the hordes of zombies roaming the island in order to be the winner. Zombies range from standard shambling types to heavily infected creatures and "freakish super bosses", the latter potentially requiring all three teams to co-operate in order to take them down.
A crafting system also features in the game, allowing players to forge their own customised weapon arsenal. According to Deep Silver: "There will be hundreds of weapons, trinkets and items that players can craft, and once crafted, these weapons can continue to be improved to fully suit a player’s personality and play style.
