Escape Dead Island is out next week, and Deep Silver has released the launch trailer.

The single-player survival-mystery game set in the Dead Island universe tasks the player with finding out what caused the Banoi outbreak.

As a journalist, the player will need to explore the island and collect as much evidence as possible, all the while trying to survive.

The game also provides a look at Dead Island’s origins and foreshadows the future of Dead Island 2.

If you pre-order the game now, you will have guaranteed access to the Dead Island 2 beta next year.

Escape Dead Island will be made available next week on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 November 18 and November 21 in North America and Europe, respectively.
