Bantam has announced that it's set to publish the official novelisation of Dead Island, penned by British Fantasy Award winner Mark Morris and due to launch simultaneously alongside the game itself in September. Telling the story of the doomed tourists visiting the fictional Banoi island, the Dead Island novel will tie-in directly to the game.
Featuring the guests of the five-star Royal Palms Resort on what was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday in a tropical paradise, both Dead Island and the novel has a mysterious zombie outbreak tearing apart the island without warning.
Assuming control of one of four survivors with a unique background and set of abilities, you'll race through the destroyed paradise, fighting against the undead hordes as the outbreak spreads. The Dead Island novel will be pubished by Bantam and will release as a paperback on 8th September, 2011 priced at £6.99.
