Dead Space 3 is the third installment in EA’s critically acclaimed horror game franchise. Unveiled couple of months ago, EA has just announced the release date of the game. People who will pre-order Dead Space 3 will get a free upgrade to the limited edition, which contains two DLC packs.
The bundles are named First Contract and Witness the Truth. First Contract will offer the players First Contract suit of nifty armor and the Negotiator weapon. The suit protects from long term space exposure and the Negotiator boasts a Tesla Beam “capable of bursting a man-sized organism into several pieces with a single shot.”
Witness the Truth includes a Witness suit and the Evangeliser weapon. The gun is “AL-2g assault rifle on the top with an Emerson 2100 “Big Boy” tactical shotgun on the bottom”
Visceral, the developers of the game have revealed that the game contains a crafting system which was requested by many fans. The game’s protagonist will scavenge materials and would make new weapons out of it.
Dead Space 3 has gone through many changes. New to the series is the co-op mode and cover system similar to that of Gears of War and unlike the previous two games Dead Space 3 is set on a frozen planet named Tau Volantis. Will it be as successful as the earlier installments, remains to be seen?
The game will release on 5th February 2013 in the US and 8th February in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
