Escape Dead Island has been announced by Deep Silver for PC and last-gen consoles.

Described as a “survival-mystery game with a fresh perspective on the Dead Island universe,” the game will bridge the events between both Dead Island titles.

It also promised to reveal the origins of the virus, in a story-driven, single-player game played through the eyes of Cliff Calo.

Cliff wants to expose the truth behind the Banoi outbreak by filming evidence at the quarantined island of Narapela.

Players will be able to freely explore the new island, sneak around to avoid the undead which can hear and smell you.”

The visual style of the game is comic-inspired and is slated for release sometime later this year.
