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.
