Dead Island: Epidemic is a fun multiplayer hack and slash arena bawler with tons of zombies and lots of comically excessive brutality. At it’s core is a MOBA, but don’t expect the sombre, structured gameplay of DOTA, Dead Island: Epidemic is is more about chaotic multiplayer hack and slash action than strategic combat.
Dead Island: Epidemic features two core modes – allowing you to 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 a 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.
With pick-up-and play gameplay, nice visuals and over the top cartoony violence, Dead Island: Epidemic is certainly worth giving a go if you’d like a crack on a MOBA, but are baffled by all the advanced strategy (or if you just want to decapitate some zombies).
