Survivors Wanted for Dead Island: Epidemic Closed Beta


Deep Silver today opens registration for the closed beta test for Dead Island: Epidemic, the free-to-play PC ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena) spin-off to Techland’s open world zombie RPG series. Participating in the beta will provide access to exclusive in-game items and rewards which you will be able to keep once the beta has ended and the full game is ready for public launch.

Dead Island: Epidemic, also known by its fitting acronym DIE, is an action-packed MOBA with a zombie survival twist. The game consists of an all-out battle royale between three teams of four survivors each fighting over supply points while also blasting through waves of zombies. It may have a different look and gameplay format, but Epidemic carries over core Dead Island elements of weapon crafting, special abilities, and teamwork.
