Dead Space 3 Launches February 2013

Posted on August 14, 2012 at 12:10 pm by Justin Cavender

Dead Space 3 is set to launch this winter, and with it comes the chills of sub zero conditions, monsters, human enemies, and Necromorphs. The only hope for mankind is Engineer Issac Clarke and his new partner, John Carver. Together, they journey to a hostile new planet—Tau Volantis. As terrifying as all that sounds, there is a shiny beacon of hope: players can bring a friend. The drop-in/drop-out co-op feature gives players the option to team-up whenever they choose. Of course players can fly solo, but playing co-op will also supply additional story details, side missions, and game play mechanics.

The Dead Space 3 Limited Edition provides gamers with first access to two game bundles: “First Contact” and “Witness the Truth” – each of which contains an advanced suit and devastating new weapons. These hand-crafted weapon combinations act as initial blueprints for the millions of permutations players will be able to create using the all-new weapon crafting system in the game.

“First Contact” Bundle

  • First Contact Suit: This unique EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) suit was built by the SCAF (Sovereign Colonies Armed Forces) for encounters with “foreign entities.” It sports a flamboyant golden finish to provide protection from long-term space exposure and thick armor for… unspecified reasons. The suit was given the nickname “First Contact” by the scientists who made it.
  • Negotiator Weapon: While technically classified by the SCAF as a “scientific instrument,” the gold-plated “Negotiator” is loaded with some surprisingly aggressive hardware. The overclocked, top-mounted Tesla Beam is capable of bursting a man-sized organism into several pieces with a single shot. The bottom-mounted Linegun appears to have been built with the sole purpose of cleanly dismembering organic tissue from a distance.

”Witness the Truth” Bundle

  • Witness Suit: These insulated suits were worn by a SCAF deep dig team assigned to exhume the darkest secrets of Tau Volantis. Whatever they found locked deep in the ice changed them forever. When they emerged weeks later, they were covered head to toe in strange graffiti and claimed to be “Witnesses to the Truth.”
  • Evangelizer Weapon: A modification of the standard AL-2 used by the Sovereign Colonies Legionaries, this version sports a souped-up AL-2g assault rifle on the top with an Emerson 2100 “Big Boy” tactical shotgun on the bottom. The surviving “Witnesses” of the SCAF deep dig team dubbed it the Evangelizer and decorated them top to bottom with strange symbols.

Dead Space 3 is being developed by Visceral Games for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, and on PC.

      Super scary series and I can't wait for Dead Space 3.

        Yeah I'll probably scream the whole time. Do any of you ever play wearing headphones? It's terrifying.
