A new trailer for Deep Silver and Fatshark’s Dead Island spinoff has arrived, complete with an official release date.
If you don’t know, Escape Dead Island takes place between DI and the forthcoming DI2. It also shakes up the series’ universe quite a bit by placing you in the shoes of a character who has to make use of stealth and survival tactics to make it off the island since he’s not immune to the zombie-plague like all the other heroes you’ve played as have been.
Basically (for the most part), this one is a one bite and you’re toast affair. What developer Fatshark is doing is so far looking pretty nice took, as they’re not only changing up the theme, but the actual look and play mechanics as well. This is a whole new Dead Island, and one that should tide fans over nicely till DI 2 arrives for current generation consoles in 2015.
Look for Escape Dead Island on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC this November the 18th.
