EA and Visceral Games release Dead Space 3 to retail and announce Dead Space 3 Awakened DLC
The fight against the Necromorphs returns – but this time gamers don’t have to go at it alone! Visceral Games has announced that Dead Space 3 is now available at retail stores in North America and on Origin.com (CLICK HERE to buy Dead Space 3 via Amazon.com).
Dead Space 3 introduces an innovative drop-in/drop-out feature, all-new weapon crafting system and takes players through the terrors that lie hidden in deep space and the unforgiving ice planet of Tau Volantis.
“With Dead Space 3 our goal was to evolve the franchise bringing in innovative new features like drop-in/drop-out co-op, weapon crafting, and an engaging atmosphere while still retaining the incredible suspense, horror, action and sound that the series is known for,” said Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and General Manager of Visceral Games and Executive Producer on Dead Space 3. “Gamers are going to be thrown in and out of space, taken to a violent new ice planet and allowed to explore several different abandoned spaceships and caves. But we’re not stopping there. In Dead Space 3 Awakened, gamers will experience some of the most disturbing content they have ever seen in a Dead Space game – they are going to love it.”
Visceral Games also announced today that Dead Space 3 Awakened, an all-new digital download pack, will be available in March. In Dead Space 3 Awakened, players will experience the franchise’s darkest chapters as the Necromorph battles become even more gruesome and terrifying than ever before. The pack will be available in March on the PlayStation Network and PC via Origin.com for $9.99 and Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 MS Points.
Dead Space 3 takes players to the edge of the psyche on a suspense-filled expedition to uncover the secret of the Necromorph infestation and unravel the mystery behind the mysterious Markers. For the first time in the franchise, players can choose to experience this alone or with a friend using the fully integrated drop-in/drop-out co-op feature. In co-op, players take on the role of Sergeant John Carver – a merciless soldier who lost his family to the Necromorph infestation – as they unlock story details, side missions and gameplay mechanics that only he can uncover. Dead Space 3 also introduces a hostile new planet called Tau Volantis that pits players against deadly, subzero conditions and highly-evolved enemies including new Necromorphs and gigantic boss creatures. Using the all-new weapon crafting system, players can scavenge for parts and build devastating new weapons to defeat any enemies that stand in their way.
Dead Space 3 is now available in North America for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with Kinect support, and the PC, and will be available February 8 in Europe. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
