When Deep Silver announced a zombified MOBA (or ZOMBA as they like to call it) based on the Dead Island series, the idea of a first person MOBA no doubt intrigued many players. Afterall, Deep Silver promised players that Epidemic would carry over many of the recognizable traits from the original series. So when I heard Deep Silver had released the first set of screenshots for Dead Island: Epidemic I was excited! However, as I laid my eyes upon the images, that excitement quickly turn into quite the opposite.

Dead Island: Epidemic is not first-person. Potentially the most disappointing revelation for a game that may actually have some redeeming qualities. Epidemic will in fact employ a camera scheme more comparable to Bloodline Champions than League of Legends.

Fitting since Techland will not be returning to the helm, but will instead be passing the torch onto Stunlock Studios, the developers behind Bloodline Champions. Similarly, Epidemic will share more in common mechanically with Bloodline Champions than League of Legends. Notably, players will use their left and right mouse buttons to perform light and heavy attacks.

Three teams of four will battle it out over various modes, one of which is Capture the Flag. The three teams will battle it out over control points while also having to deal with zombie packs who spawn once someone wanders too close. During these waves of zombies players may find it advantageous to team up with the enemy groups in order to better handle the incoming waves and zombie bosses. Techland says that unlike other MOBAs, the gameplay “isn’t focused on attacking the other teams’ base” but instead on “tackling dynamic gameplay objectives”.

Players will be able to choose from at least six classes and will be able to craft their own weapons, trinkets and items. Just like in the original Dead Island, cnce crafted the weapons can be upgraded with other parts to form unique weapons which suit the player’s current needs.

Deep Silver has yet to divulge any release date or beta news.

    As much as I want to be excited for this; it barely carries a resemblance to its namesake. Combine that with the details above and…well..I just can’t get my hopes up over this.

    Oh so it’s not a FPMOBA…. Even though Dead Island is a first person shooter…. and MOBAs are not normally done in the first person…. which would actually be unique…. Nope, just a typical MOBA, because who needs originality?

    Whatever you all say, this game looks amazing, and fact that it will be more like BLC than LoL is even greater. It’s simple, BLC is far more better PvP game than LoL. And mechanics behind it really gives the feeling that you you’re in the middle of action, and not just following a champ and clicking 100000 times per sec with mouse… lol

The three teams will battle it out over control points while also having to deal with zombie packs who spawn once someone wanders too close. During these waves of zombies players may find it advantageous to team up with the enemy groups in order to better handle the incoming waves and zombie bosses. Techland says that unlike other MOBAs, the gameplay “isn’t focused on attacking the other teams’ base” but instead on “tackling dynamic gameplay objectives”.

    Players will be able to choose from at least six classes and will be able to craft their own weapons, trinkets and items. Just like in the original Dead Island, cnce crafted the weapons can be upgraded with other parts to form unique weapons which suit the player’s current needs.

    This game really does seem fun. An Action Moba that has PVE.

    I’d play it.

    As much as I want to be excited for this; it barely carries a resemblance to its namesake. Combine that with the details above and…well..I just can’t get my hopes up over this.

    Oh so it’s not a FPMOBA…. Even though Dead Island is a first person shooter…. and MOBAs are not normally done in the first person…. which would actually be unique…. Nope, just a typical MOBA, because who needs originality?

    Whatever you all say, this game looks amazing, and fact that it will be more like BLC than LoL is even greater. It’s simple, BLC is far more better PvP game than LoL. And mechanics behind it really gives the feeling that you you’re in the middle of action, and not just following a champ and clicking 100000 times per sec with mouse… lol

  3. Dead Island: Epidemic is not a first-person MOBA, new screenshots released

    Aug 21, 2013

    When Deep Silver announced a zombified MOBA (or ZOMBA as they like to call it) based on the Dead Island series, the idea of a first person MOBA no doubt intrigued many players. Afterall, Deep Silver promised players that Epidemic would carry over many of the recognizable traits from the original series. So when I heard Deep Silver had released the first set of screenshots for Dead Island: Epidemic I was excited! However, as I laid my eyes upon the images, that excitement quickly turn into quite the opposite.

    Dead Island: Epidemic is not first-person. Potentially the most disappointing revelation for a game that may actually have some redeeming qualities. Epidemic will in fact employ a camera scheme more comparable to Bloodline Champions than League of Legends.

    Fitting since Techland will not be returning to the helm, but will instead be passing the torch onto Stunlock Studios, the developers behind Bloodline Champions. Similarly, Epidemic will share more in common mechanically with Bloodline Champions than League of Legends. Notably, players will use their left and right mouse buttons to perform light and heavy attacks.

    Three teams of four will battle it out over various modes, one of which is Capture the Flag. The three teams will battle it out over control points while also having to deal with zombie packs who spawn once someone wanders too close. During these waves of zombies players may find it advantageous to team up with the enemy groups in order to better handle the incoming waves and zombie bosses. Techland says that unlike other MOBAs, the gameplay “isn’t focused on attacking the other teams’ base” but instead on “tackling dynamic gameplay objectives”.

    • What part of this sounds like a “typical moba”

      Are you unable to read?

      This is an Action/Moba with a TON of PVE.

      I have not seen ONE, NOT ONE Moba do this before.

      • Sounds? I have not a clue since I read with my eyes, not my ears. You also got your name wrong on the second line, it’s “Can you even read?” not “Are you unable to read?”

        Also, you knwo what else is a Action/Moba? LoL, Dota, SMNC, BLC, aaand just about every other MOBA out there. I mean, they all have action and they’re ALL MOBAS and.. OH WAIT, they also have PVE! *Le Gasp*

        You need to catch up on your games 😛

      • Typical Moba in that
        -Generic camera perspective, as opposed to its namesakes roots
        -Capture Points
        -Utilizes similar mechanics to the developers past MOBA designs

        Everything about this game screams by the numbers. The camera is so high up any grisly horror detail is completely cut out of the loop. D-I may not of been scary but the zombies were legitimately dangerous, partly because of how much they got up in your face. That’s completely lost on players in this new version.

        I hated Bloodline Champions because it was buggy and unbalanced, so I am curious to see how they do with this upcoming failure.

        • Yes, finally someone with a brain as to why this game is just.. another MOBA with the skin of a beloved IP.

          If they made this game play like the other Dead Island games, and made THAT a MOBA, oh mans that would be a sexy game. But we can all wish and the Devs will continue pushing their heads up their own bums.

        • Unbalanced? BLC is probably the most balanced game I have ever encountered.

          To noobs it might seem to be unbalanced when they meet someone with some slight experience and get totally crushed in something like 10 seconds…

          • Let me add that the learning curve on BLC is just sick. And now that we know that DIE is getting done by SL Studios, i am fairly sure that this will turn out awesome.

            Too bad the game was too hard for most people. All my friends gave up because they couldn’t get good at the game, and they went with easy peasy LoL instead.

  7. As much as I want to be excited for this; it barely carries a resemblance to its namesake. Combine that with the details above and…well..I just can’t get my hopes up over this.

    • Honestly, all they needed to do was make play like the other games. you know the first person combat that made the Dead Island games so freaking enjoyable? If they did just that and made a MOBA of it, I’d be all over it.
