Posted by: Jeremy at 8/9/2013 9:32 AM
So much for containing the zombie outbreak that occurred on Banoi, Deep Silver has announced that the incident is officially turning into an epidemic. Dead Island: Epidemic to be exact. The next entry in the series will establish a new genre in the gaming industry: ZOMBA. That means: zombie online multiplayer battle arena.

Epidemic will be a free to play PC game that combines the popular moba style of gaming with the trademark components of the Dead Island series. There isn’t a whole lot more known about the project aside from its existence and the basic premise. We expect to hear a lot more information on the project very, very soon. You can read the full, officially press release announcing the project on the next page.
