'ESCAPE Dead Island' release date announced, hits PS3 and Xbox 360 this November

The Dead Island series has a major year ahead of itself with two new installments coming to retailers. First up though, is past-gen iteration ESCAPE Dead Island, which is a spin-off that will connect the action-packed events of the first Dead Island with those that will take place in Dead Island 2.

Just call ESCAPE Dead Island the bridge between the two stories. ESCAPE will be launching this coming Nov. 18 and will only be available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game will be bringing yet another gorgeous setting for the entire story to be carried out in. The intense and graphic melee combat you've come to expect from the series is back in ESCAPE Dead Island, as are the insane, hidden treasures scattered throughout the game's world.

Hordes of zombies will be presenting players with plenty of unique opportunities to utilize their diverse arsenal of weapons that will all lead into the Dead Island 2 installment next year. This is a great way for players to learn more about the Dead Island universe before the new game hits next year, or it'll serve as a delicious appetizer to what we are going to see when Dead Island 2 launches in Spring of 2015. It depends on how experienced you are with the series.

Ready up for Dead Island 2 with the Nov. 18 launch of ESCAPE Dead Island. It will be launching on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and you can check out the new trailer above.
