Patch Notes[]

New Character in the store: Roy Becker[]

  • First of all, we’re super happy to introduce our new character: Roy Becker, the intrepid tourist who has yet to see it all.
  • Roy has also stacked up many coupons for most of the fast food chains; in a moment of precognition he realized the apocalypse was upon us and made use of all coupons, stacking up on food. Roy's also a bit of a badass because let's face it - Any man with a fanny pack has nothing to fear.

New Feature: Gadget System[]

  • This latest patch introduces the new Gadget System!
  • Gadgets are a new way to offer more options to customize your gear, and by extension: your style of play. Any player who reaches Tier 4 in Epidemic will find their first gadget blueprints by playing, or in the shop. We hope you’ll like this new system and we’re looking forward to seeing what new strategies you come up with, and of course: your feedback!

Nab your free Oktoberfest icon![]

  • For those of you who don’t know - Deep Silver HQ is located in Munich, home of the legendary Oktoberfest which kicks off this weekend and to celebrate this annual beer-guzzling fest we’re going to give everyone who logs in between Saturday 20th September and Thursday the 2nd October an exclusive beer-themed icon. Prost!
