Publisher Deep Silver revealed that the developer of the upcoming MOBA based on the Dead Island license, Dead Island: Epidemic, is Swedish developer Stunlock Studios, which worked on Bloodline Champions.
Epidemic will feature six classes, with three teams of four players competing against each other, but also dealing with the zombie horde which impedes their progress. The game will be more of an action game than most MOBAs, with such maneuvers as rolls and sprinting.
Dead Island: Epidemic will be free-to-play and PC only; no release date has been announced.
