‘Escape Dead Island’ Announced, Includes ‘Dead Island 2’ Beta Access

If you fancy yourself a fan of the Dead Island franchise, you must be so happy right now. There’s the colorful ZOMBA, or Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena game Dead Island: Epidemic, the Yager-developed Dead Island 2, and now we have a third game called Escape Dead Island.

Deep Silver describes Escape Dead Island as a survival mystery game, so it doesn’t sound like it will share the zany, carefree personalities of the other two games. It will be set on the fictional island of Narapela and follow Cliff Calo, the son of a wealthy media mogul, who makes a trip to Banoi to uncover the truth behind the epidemic.

Sadly, this will be a single-player experience — another first for the series — but they are releasing it at a discounted price of $39.99.

In related news, if you purchase the game at GameStop you’ll get access to the Dead Island 2 beta that will kick off sometime next year.

Escape Dead Island releases this fall on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Kinda looks like Dead Rising on the Wii with the same style as Ninja Gaiden Z (which coincidentally, I was going to trade-in Riptide for, but they still priced it too high and it ticked me off)…

    Eh I’ll try it if I get the chance!

  • Chandler Of-Adelaide

    My God, this becoming the Bayformers of videogames.

    • Fantasma George

      Joke’s on you, Bing! Can you name the band that sings at the end of Revenge of The Fallen??

      • Chandler Of-Adelaide

        Yeah, it’s Linkin Park, what’s your point?

        • Fantasma George

          Oh nothing! It’s just that seeing as you went out of your way to start a ruckus, I just felt the need to remind you that your favorite band sucks!

          • Chandler Of-Adelaide

            Not my favourite band by a long shot but hey it’s okay…simple folk make mistakes often, as I’m sure you’re aware from first hand experience.

          • Fantasma George

            Yes, put them under a bus right after stumbling all over the place. Sorry, Bing. I’m sorry that from now on whenever you start listening to your favorite crappy little band on Pandora you’ll think of simple ol’ me!

          • Chandler Of-Adelaide

            I don’t use Pandora either. If you’re really interested, my top 5 bands are; Hypocrisy, Pain, Children of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir and Lacuna Coil. Maybe now that you have something to work with you can come up with something clever and objective. I doubt it, but I’m willing to give you benefit of the doubt, again…

          • Fantasma George

            Lacuna Coil?! Yeah, that’s definitely another paddling!

          • Chandler Of-Adelaide

            Waiting on the objective part…

          • Fantasma George

            Nah I’m done I got shit to do, you can stop F5ing this now.

          • Chandler Of-Adelaide

            Haha cop out much…until next time Failissimo George.

  • Adam Paquette

    meh doesnt look too good. I was pretty disappointed with riptide. i really liked the first dead island though so im hoping part 2 is good, and it better be on ps3

  • Frank Popp Jr.

    Ha… he’s got “The Shining” carpet in his hotel room.
