Comic styled action game Escape Dead Island is set for release November 18, publisher Deep Silver announced today.
As shown in a new trailer, Escape Dead Island takes place on Narapala, a different island from the first set of games, and is intended to take place between the first Dead Island and Dead Island 2, which is set for release next year. Presumably it will explain how the infection makes it to the mainland.
Ordering the game will also give players access to the beta for Dead Island 2, although currently it’s unknown when the beta will start.
Escape Dead Island will launch for $40 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
