Closed beta sign-ups begin for Dead Island: Epidemic

Posted on February 7, 2014 AT 05:07am

Deep Silver is now accepting sign-ups for the beta of its upcoming free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena title, Dead Island: Epidemic.

Epidemic‘s “core mode” features “3 teams of 4 battling it out in a competition to grab supplies, hold key points, outsmart the competition and blast through hordes of zombies.” Players will control their character using WASD, with the mouse being used to aim and fire. The game also features weapon crafting, a staple of the Dead Island series.

“All newly registered players can directly join the 30,000 Alpha testers and make their first steps in Dead Island: Epidemic even before the official start of the Closed Beta, they will receive exclusive in-game items and rewards as the Closed Beta proceeds which they can keep afterwards,” Deep Silver explains.

Dead Island: Epidemic currently has no official release date.
