‘Dead Island: Epidemic’ Entering Closed Beta, Register Now

DIE_1

It seems as if Techland is taking a break to tinker with their Dead Island franchise, seeing where else they can go with it. Their first experiment, Dead Island: Epidemic, is the very first “ZOMBA” (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena), and so far I’m digging its colorful, cartoonish art style.

The free-to-play PC game is about to enter a closed beta. If you’re interested in teaming up with a few friends to take out hordes of the undead, as well as a few miscellaneous mutations, you can sign up for the beta at the newly re-launched www.playdie.net. Those who decide to jump in will be rewarded with exclusive in-game items, all of which can be carried over when it officially launches. Fresh batch of screenshots after the jump.

    Played this on alpha stage, nothing really interesting for me.

      That’s a bummer.
