Fan-favourite character returns to action as Deep Silver reveals Early Ac-cess packs and retail

Dead Island: Epidemic, the world’s first ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena), enters Early Access phase. Together with three different Early Access starter packs and an Early Access retail box, Deep Silver also introduces iconic Dead Island hero Sam B as a playable character. All the various Early Access packs will offer exclusive weapons, upgrades and in-game currency that can be used straightaway or during the upcoming Open Beta phase and at the launch of the final game.

The different packs are:

·Patient Zero Pack (£ 12.99) – total value of over £28
The entry pack offers 5 unique weapons, 3 additional characters, the “Golden Sprocket Hammer”, as well as boosters, character & gear points and in-game cash.

·Deadicated Pack (£ 26.99) – total value of over £160
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 (£ 29.99) – total value of over £160 x 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.  

·Badass Starter Pack – Retail Box (£ 19.99) – total value of over £ 95

This first-ever retail box for an early access product offers 5 starter weapons, a pack of 3 survivor characters, the “Golden Sprocket Hammer”, exclusive in-game title & icon and a pack of boosters, character and gear points & in-game cash plus the additional weapons “Trident Cactus”, “Lady Blue” and “Golden Precise Shotgun”. Besides, Badass players need a badass character, so Sam B will be available in this pack, as well as more items & characters once the game heads into Open Beta and launch phase. Moreover, everything in this pack is granted twice, once for the player and once as an additional gift pack so they can infect a friend with the Epidemic.
The Badass Starter Pack retail box will be available from 27th June 2014.
