Dead Island: Epidemic is Deep Silver’s hack & slash action packed addition to the Dead Island series, and it’s now in Open Beta!
Pitting survivors against hordes of zombies as well as other survivors in a struggle for power and supplies, a new PvE mode has been added for the open beta called Crossroads. Progression system overhaul is also a big focus for the open beta, now instead of having individual character levels, everyone has a unified level across all characters. Leveling up one character levels up all your characters and unlocks new skills and abilities for all characters at the same time for you to pick and choose the next time you play one of your other characters. All characters now have special unique passive skills rather than have weapon expertise.
