Escape Dead Island, the cel-shaded spin-off of the Dead Island series, will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 18 in North America, and November 21 in the rest of the world.

The release date was revealed at the end of a new trailer, one that shows the game’s visual style and visceral melee combat. The video also reveals that one of the original Dead Island cast, Xian Mei, will be joining protagonist Cliff Calo in his mystery-filled journey to escape the island of Narapela.
