PC MOBA Dead Island: Epidemic seeking beta players


Deep Silver's free-to-play Dead Island spin-off, Dead Island: Epidemic, is now accepting applications for its upcoming closed beta.

The free-to-play PC game is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA) set in the Dead Island universe. Three teams of players fight against each other amidst mobs of CPU-controlled undead who equally hate all players. That's just how zombies roll, you know?

Curious zombie slayers may head on over to the official site and sign up for the Dead Island: Epidemic closed beta today. If you're newly registered, you'll automatically get access to Dead Island: Epidemic's ongoing Alpha test – of which 30,000 players have joined – ahead of the closed beta. All participants will earn in-game goods that carry over into Dead Island: Epidemic proper whenever it launches.
