A third-person shooter set in the Dead Island universe is coming to both PC and previous gen (Xbox 360, PS3) consoles next week.
Fatshark, developer of Escape Dead Island, is describing their new game as a survival-mystery game, and the style looks to deviate quite a bit from the original games in the series.
While the setting remains, Fatshark has taken their own liberties with creating an entirely new experience under the Dead Island name. The single-player focused game encourages players to mix both the typical action style of combat and a more reserved stealthy approach throughout the story.
The game takes place between the event of Dead Island 1 and Dead Island 2. Players will learn the origins of the outbreak and a greater understanding of the Dead Island universe.
Escape Dead Island releases this Tuesday (11/18/14) on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 for $39.99.
