The lights are on
Have you ever wondered how all those lovely beach-goers on the island of Banoi came to be a little less alive in Dead Island? Deep Silver is planning on finally answering that question in a new, single-player adventure spin-off called Escape Dead Island.
The story puts players in the expensive shoes of rich kid Cliff Calo, who steals a yacht with his friends to try and uncover the mystery of the Banoi tragedy. As his journey continues, Cliff will have to sneak past the undead and confront his own mental state.
The aesthetic borrows from comic books, and also weaves in some reality-bending elements that keep players on their toes. The title will be out this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Escape Dead Island is a bridge story that leads into Dead Island 2. That title is under development for new-gen consoles and PC and planned for release in 2015. For more, you can read up on our E3 coverage.

Looks weird. I like weird.
This looks cool as hell
I loved the original and the IP has a ton of potential, it's in really good hands with Yager. This looks pretty cool, I like the comic book style graphics but they could have made them a bit sharper.
Ugh...more zombies. I must be the only goddam person on the planet who is sick of zombie games, TV shows, movies, books, drink cozies, lunchboxes, T-shirts, and so on, and so forth...
Though this does look interesting...
I wonder why it won't be on Xbox One and PS4. It just seems backwards to me, making a last-gen exclusive.
I wish this was coming to the Vita; IMO, it would have made more sense.
I feel like they honestly have no idea what to do with Dead Island and are just taking it in every single direction possible with the hopes that people will change their minds about it.
NO,I'm also done with Zombies. I've never watched Walking Dead, or got into any zombie themed game. it's just to much overkill on one archetype. I use to Vampires, and zombies, and such, but thats been ruined by two of my greatest loves,movies, and video games.
Looks interesting. Needs more Xian Mei.
