Dead Island: Epidemic

Early access is now available on Steam. I’ve been playing this for awhile in alpha and beta and it’s quite fun. If you’re interested, I’d definitely suggest the 4-pack since it’s a great deal compared to the rest. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/43241/

It’s WASD movement, mouse aiming almost like a dual stick shooter (sadly no controller support though). You level up and craft weapons, but you also level up during missions similar to ability progression in a MOBA. PvP and PvE are both very fun to me. I especially like how PvP is 3 teams of 4, keeps things from stalemating too badly and it’s not just deathmatch either.

Isn’t this eventually going F2P?

It is a F2P game already, just access is gated at the moment to people with beta invites and who buy the starter packs.

No surprise. This is shutting down.

Over the past weeks and months we’ve been evaluating how to proceed with Dead Island: Epidemic and looking towards the future for the game. We’re sad to announce today that we’ve come to the conclusion to cease further development.

We will be leaving the servers open until the end of October 15th (Pacific Time), during which time we’ll run a very large discount on all characters and boosts to give everyone a chance to spend any remaining currency on characters and items you may have wanted to try before, but never did.

How generous.

Wow the game never even left early access. I recall playing it a few times during the beta, there was nothing special about it.

I like how they specified it’s shutting down Pacific time.
