Dead Island: Epidemic MOBA Shutting Down

As if it weren't already clear that the world is not desperately short of F2P MOBAs, and that dressing a game in the clothes of a known brand isn't attractive enough to players, another branded arena 'em up is closing. Dead Island: Epidemic [official site], a MOBA-y spin-off from the open-world zombie-slaying FPS-RPG, will close next month, publishers Deep Silver have announced. The game will…

Dead Island: Epidemic Ready To Infect Beta Players

If you've missed word of Dead Island: Epidemic before today, it is - deep breath - a free-to-play multiplayer action hack and slash arena game. It's pursuing a cartoony look and feel and, from a trailer voiceover, it's making no bones about trying to be funny (although I hope the game itself aims a little higher than a silly voice).

It ups the ante with another of the gaming industry's more rampant diseases…

Bloodless Champions: Dead Island MOBA Detailed

My fingers still feel a deep sense of slithering, shivering wrong in the pits of their tiny finger souls when they type out the words "Dead Island MOBA," but here we are. Dead Island Epidemic is happening because Deep Silver's so obsessed with zombies on islands that I think it wants to create an actual, factual epidemic of Dead Island (and Dead-Island-like) games. If that is indeed…

OK Then: Deep Silver Making A Dead Island MOBA

Dead-Island-meets-MOBA might sound like an outlandish pairing, but between the time it took me to write that headline and finish this sentence, it's all clicked into place. The two are exactly alike. MOBAs are, after all, everywhere, and each new series to be bitten by the battle arena bug begets a horde of lane-shambling brothers and sisters. I'm not knocking the genre or anything (LoL and…
