Fancy yourself a zombie aficionado? Are you a fan of the runner type or the slow, never-ending stumbling of the horde? If you couldn’t care less and just want to gib some zombies with your own creative destruction nature then Dead Island: Epidemic appears to be the game for you. Revealed earlier this month, developer Deep Silver is pushing the Dead Island franchise in a new direction with the upcoming ZOMBA.
Yep, that’s a zombie MOBA.
The game will stick to the franchise roots, enabling players to collect and construct unique methods of gibbing. The biggest deviation from MOBA gameplay for zombie hunters will be the addition of a third lane. That’s right, a MOBA with three warring factions.
Interesting in hunting some zombies? The game is currently in closed alpha testing but you can now sign up for beta access. It looks like Deep Silver will be quite picky in whom it invites in the early rounds. System information, demographics and experience details are all requested.
