Visceral Games has announced today to coincide with the North American launch of Dead Space 3, that gamers can extend this brutal adventure in March with Dead Space 3 Awakened, an all-new dlc pack for 800 Microsoft Points.
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.
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.”
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 hits European retail outlets on Friday February 8th 2013.
