The latest trailer for Deep Silver’s Escape Dead Island calls protagonist Cliff Calo’s sanity into question. As if fighting off endless zombie hordes wasn’t enough, now players have to deal with an unreliable narrator.

Escape Dead Island’s third person adventure gameplay marks a departure from the series’ FPS roots. Unlike previous Dead Island player characters, Cliff Calo isn’t immune to the zombie virus, which affects the way he approaches encounters with the undead. As the trailer shows, players will have to balance both stealth and action mechanics if they’re to avoid getting infected. 

Escape Dead Island will be out tomorrow, November 18, for PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360. If you absolutely can’t wait a day to get your Dead Island fix, then you can kill time by checking out the gallery below, or by reading Kyle Hilliard’s in-depth preview here.
