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.
