Dead Island: Epidemic Open Beta

Dead Island: Epidemic is now in early access on Steam, and since the multiplayer hack & slash arena is a free-to-play game, this is an open beta for all Steam gamers. Here's a new open beta trailer and this page has all the details on what's new at this stage in the game's development. Here's word on what's new: :
All-New PvE-Mode: Crossroads
Crossroads enrichens the PvE experience in DI:E. It offers a bigger variation, higher replayability and more challenge, regardless of skill level. Both beginners and veterans get access to a mode where they canhave a lot of fun while at the same time unifying the game experience across both PVE and PvP.

Progression System Overhaul
Levels for individual characters have been removed: There is now a global character level that applies to each character and unlocks apply to each character once you reach a new level.

Crafting Overhaul
Weapon leveling and workbench levels have been removed and a new loot-based weapon modification has been introduced: As they complete matches players can now earn weapon modifications (which are divided into rarity: common, uncommon, rare, epic and legendary) which offer progressively more powerful and unique gameplay altering perks.

Passive Skills
Character weapon expertise has been removed and instead every character now has a unique passive ability.

Loot System Rework
Smarter drop system has been added which ensures more guaranteed drops and less randomness.

It's actually a very well done little game. It's quite fun, and the MOBA stuff isn't really a thing (yet) to worry about until you PVP obviously. They have a really good tutorial leading you into some PvE matches and then PvP finally. Graphics are great, sound design is quite good. Gameplay is pretty good as well. Overall, it's worth playing to pass some time. And you might have fun as well

Completely useless, mostly useless, meh, ok, and wow, what a crappy roll.
