Deep Silver tasking Fatshark with delivering a different take.
There's no question that the E3 response to the satirical trailer for 'Dead Island 2' was overwhelmingly good- there's just no denying an excellent trailer. And while 'Dead Island 2' is due out in 2015, there is another promising new piece for the 'Dead Island' franchise. Today, Deep Silver announced that 'Escape Dead Island' is coming to the PS3.
The new game is meant to bridge the events of the first 'Dead Island' and 'Dead Island 2,' but more importantly, 'Escape Dead Island' sports both a different gameplay set-up and art style. There are both stealth elements, and a question of lucidity for the player character.
From Deep Silver, "this story-driven, single-player game is played through the eyes of Cliff Calo, who’s watching his world unravel."
"Cliff is the spoiled son of a powerful media mogul who has stolen a yacht with his friends determined to film the documentary of the century: exposing the truth about the Banoi outbreak to the public. Their plan: infiltrate the archipelago’s top-secret quarantined island of Narapela and document everything."
"Players will freely explore this all-new island, sneaking to avoid undead that can hear and smell you. But even this island full of zombies isn’t what it appears to be on the surface. Cliff struggles with his own sanity as the world around him begins to become increasingly unpredictable. Time distorts and folds in on itself; strange messages appear and impossible events shatter reality. Oceans turn to blood, containers plummet from the clear sky… If Cliff had any thoughts about this being a routine documentary, he’d be 'dead' wrong."
