dead island epidemic

We normally frown on pre-announcement announcements, but Deep Silver’s Dead Island: Epidemic announcement actually has more than “we’ll tell you about our new game soon.” A little more than that, anyway.

Apparently, Dead Island: Epidemic – the latest in the zombie-bashing series – will be a free-to-play online title pitting three teams against each other “in a desperate fight for survival.” Oh yes, and they’re calling it a ZOMBA – Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena. Cough.

On the plus side, it’ll apparently have “all the trademark elements that are part of a Dead Island experience.” I’m sorta hoping that means first-person zombie-smashing, crafting, and the like, because ZOMBA makes me worry that it might actually be a top-down MOBA-like.

More will be revealed at Gamescom. You can have a look at the official site, currently featuring nothing more than an animated splash screen and a newsletter sign-up link, here.

    I genuinely can’t think of a game I want less.
