Deep Silver has dug up a new fact sheet for their upcoming Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena (ZOMBA) title Dead Island: Epidemic, detailing that players won't just be fighting of hordes of zombies, but also be facing off against other players while they destroy the undead.
Zombies aren't the only thing to fear - Players will square off against each other in 3 teams of 4 players, fighting both each other as well as a wide-range of zombies and freakish super-bosses, normal walkers to heavily infected creatures. Some will even require the cooperation of all 3 competing teams to take them down!
Epidemic will also offer players the chance to customise their character through a variation of weaponry using the "immense crafting system where players can forge their weapon arsenal of choice." Deep Silver ensures that there will be a large amount of weapons, trinkets and items that players can craft, and once crafted, these weapons can continue to be improved to fully suit a player’s personality and play style.
Dead Island: Epidemic will also be shedding the usual "attack the other teams' base" that your typical MOBA focuses on, instead going for the "fighting over control points and various targets strewn about the map" style of play. "his provides shifting, dynamic gameplay as players constantly need to adapt their focus and occasionally team up with opposing forces throughout match play. Tackling dynamic gameplay objectives are key to success."
