Escape Dead Island in November

Deep Silver announces a November 18th release date for Escape Dead Island, the recently announced zombie survival/mystery game that fills the gap between Dead Island and the upcoming Dead Island 2 (it seems they aren't buying into Gearbox's "pre-sequel" label for this concept). A new trailer celebrates the news, though for the full Dead Island marketing effect you'll have to find a way to play it backwards in slow motion on your own. The clip shows off the game's cel-shaded art style and seeming lack of antialiasing, including glimpses of melee combat. Here's word:

Deep Silver today confirms the release of ESCAPE Dead Island®, a third-person survival mystery spin-off that unravels the origins of the zombie outbreak and connects the events of multi-million-seller Dead Island with the recently announced successor Dead Island 2, for November 18 in North America. Developed by Fatshark, ESCAPE Dead Island will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft as well as Windows PC.

Delivering the key features of a Dead Island game – visceral melee combat set in a beautiful paradise setting – ESCAPE adds a completely new tone to the zombie universe. The visually unique styles accompanies the player on his struggle against insanity as he experiences the secrets of the Dead Island universe, fights off zombies with a vast and unique array of weapons and opens the path to the events that will happen in Dead Island 2.
