Hellraid: The Escape, the mobile puzzle-adventure title from Shortbreak Studios and Dead Island developer Techland, will launch for Android on October 2. The Android version will be available for $2.99, with no in-app purchases, for smartphones and tablets. In The Escape, a hint at what’s to come in 2015’s Hellraid for console and PC, players take on the role of an amnesiac who must escape a nightmarish prison. Using notes left by a previous inmate, they must navigate eight chambers filled with traps and puzzles. More puzzles will be released in the coming weeks.
Deep Silver is taking the Dead Island series down the free-to-play route with a new online-only title, Dead Island: Epidemic. Dubbed a ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena), Epidemic will be a PC-only release featuring many of the elements the series is known for as three teams face off against one another. More about Epidemic, and what else is in store for the future of the series, will be revealed at gamescom 2013.
Techland has released a number of details regarding their upcoming first-person hack-and-slasher Hellraid. The info comes in the form of a question-and-answer session, with the developer addressing character and item customization, the role of the Game Master, and the differences between single-player and co-op play. Of particular note is the Game Master, players who acts as a sort of Dungeon Master, selecting challenges, altering enemy placement, and doling out loot. New screens were also revealed.
