The previously announced closed beta for Deep Silver’s MOBA (sorry... "ZOMBA"), Dead Island: Epidemic, has entered closed beta. As an incentive, Deep Silver is also offering exclusive in-game items and rewards that players can keep after the beta finishes. 

Epidemic pits three teams of four against each other, instead of the current norm of two teams. It will also feature gameplay mechanics similar to the other games in the Dead Island franchise, including weapon crafting.

Signups for the beta program are at Dead Island: Epidemic will launch as a free to play game on PC. For more info, be sure to check out our hands-on preview with the game.
