The fun first person zombie basher from Deep Silver, Dead Island, was today confirmed to be receiving a a third person survival “mystery spin-off” that picks apart the origin story between the original outbreak of zombies and ties together all the events that lead up to the recently announced Dead Island 2, a sequel to the hugely successful Dead Island.
Set to feature “visceral melee combat set in a beautiful paradise setting”, ESCAPE Dead Island features an all new art style and gameplay system that sees players once again fighting against hordes of the undead in an attempt to survive the insanity. You’re going to encounter new elements of the Dead Island universe, uncover new secrets related to the outbreak and bring a second death to the inhabitants of the island with a load of new weapons.
ESCAPE Dead Island will arrive in North America on November 18th and in Europe on November 21st, hopefully zombie free, on PS3 and Xbox 360. But just in case, where did I put my boom stick?
