Dead Island E (1)

When it comes to MOBA games, I genuinely don’t understand the appeal. With games such as LoL and DOTA 2 killing it in the market and inspiring too many damn clones, the only thing that grabs my attention are the ludicrous cash prizes for tournaments. Pity that I have zero talent for these titles. And now, I’m going to have even less grey matter when this “ZOMBA” hits the market.

Yes, you heard me, a ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena) and not a flavour of the month exercise system. The game hits Steam Early Access soon, and it’ll set you back $16.99.

To start with anyway. Here’s a  list of the various versions available, via AGB:

Patient Zero Pack ($16.99)

Dead Island E (2)

The entry pack offers 5 unique weapons, 3additional characters, the “Golden Sprocket Hammer” as well as boosters, character & gear points and in-game cash.

Deadicated Pack ($39.99)

Dead Island E (3)

The “Deadicated Pack” includes all of the“Patient Zero Pack” plus additional content: six Tier 2 weapons, the “Golden Precise Shotgun”, the “Keghammer”, a larger booster and bundle of character & gear points and in-game cash plus exclusive access to Sam B as playable character. Additionally, players will also receive even more items & characters once the game heads into Open Beta and then again at the launch phase.

Contagion Pack ($44.99)

Dead Island E (4)

With the “Contagion Pack”, players can spread the Epidemic to their friends. It offers everything that is in the “Deadicated Pack” (with an alternate “Contagious” in-game title & icon) four times: once for the player and three gift copies that they can share with their friends.

Still, if you’re keen to offend some undead fellows with discriminating physical violence, the game will also be available as a Free-To-Play title on proper release. Purchasing one of the packs above, gets you Early Access and a jump on the competition.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
