If this new trailer for Dead Island: Epidemicis any indication, Deep Silver isn't taking its zombie-killing quite so seriously anymore. That's a great thing in my mind, because it shouldn't have in the first place.
I mean: killing zombies is mindless fun! Why not just reflect that? It's not like every game has to be as sombre as The Last of Us.
Epidemic is still in a closed beta, but you can check out some early access options here.
