Alexander Toplansky Senior Narrative Producer, Deep Silver has today announced the upcoming launch of a new game in the Dead Island series called Escape Dead Island, that will be launching on the PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 later this year during the Autumn.
The new Escape Dead Island game is a third-person single-player game which has been created to provide players with a survival mystery game with a “fresh perspective” on the Dead Island universe, says Toplansky.
Escape Dead Island will be priced at £40 on consoles and £35 for PC gamer and has been developed by War of the Vikings and War of the Roses developer Fatshark Sweden. It costs £39.99 on console and £34.99 on PC.
“Escape represents a crucial bridge between the events of Dead Island and Dead Island 2, and will finally reveal the origins of the virus, even some tantalizing clues where the events are going to lead… but it’s going to be up to you to decide what to believe. That’s because this story-driven, single-player game is played through the eyes of Cliff Calo, who’s watching his world unravel.
Cliff is the spoiled son of a powerful media mogul who has stolen a yacht with his friends determined to film the documentary of the century: exposing the truth about the Banoi outbreak to the public. Their plan: infiltrate the archipelago’s top-secret quarantined island of Narapela and document everything.”
