Escape Dead Island Announcement Screen 4

Deep Silver’s newest addition to the Dead Island franchise takes a slightly different turn in Escape Dead Island.

Today publisher Deep Silver announced their latest addition to the Dead Island universe, Escape Dead Island. The game is a third-person survival mystery that takes place after the events of Dead Island and will lead on to Dead Island 2, which is due out in 2015.

Escape Dead Island has been developed by Fatshark Sweden (creators of Lead and Gold and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2), and follows Cliff Calo, who voyages to Banoi to record the events that have happened on the islands in the first Dead Island game. Cliff will have to explore the islands as he tries to fend off zombies as well as his own mind as insanity sets in. In the trailer below you will see part of what looks like Cliff losing his mind, as the colour palette shifts between a kind of cell-shaded style, to solid black, red and white.

Have a look at the screenshots and official announcement trailer posted below.
