Today publisher Deep Silver announced the next entry into the Dead Island franchise, Dead Island: Epidemic, which is a massive online battle arena game (MOBA), a surprising change for the series.
In DIE (which is what I suggest it be called) there will be three teams that fight against zombies, Deep Silver will try and get you to call the game a ZOMBA, but please do not. More details about the game will be given at Gamescom but for now all we know is that it will “feature all the trademark elements that are part of a Dead Island experience”. Deep Silver has not revealed the developer of the game, which makes me think that it will not be the original developer Techland.
Dead Island: Epidemic will be Free-to-Play exclusive to the PC, the game currently has no release date.
