    Escape Dead Island for a Dead Island 2 Beta Invite

    What’s this? Another Dead Island game? Why of course, because you know Deep Silver won’t stop milking this zombie franchise until it stops making buku bucks. Designed to bridge the gap between the original Dead Island and next-year’s Dead Island 2, Escape Dead Island is […]

    Deep Silver Announces a New Free-to-Play Dead Island

    Dead Island: Epidemic is the next chapter in the popular series from Deep Silver and Techland, but it’s not taking the regular form of an open-world first-person RPG shooter like the two previous installments. Nope, Epidemic is a free-to-play PC MOBA–cutely re-dubbed as a ZOMBA […]
