Dead Space 3 Release Date And Weapon Contest Announced

Get ready to face the terror in Dead Space 3. Today, EA and Visceral announced a February 5, 2013 launch date (NA) for the latest installment in the Dead Space franchise.

Set in sub-zero conditions, Dead Space 3 finds Isaac Clark and his new co-op partner, John Carver, fighting for survival on a brutal and alien planet. And if the gamescom trailer is any indication, players are in for some deep scares.

Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

Fans who pre-order the Limited Edition of Dead Space 3 will be able to access two bonus suits and weapons as soon as they start the game:

  • “First Contact” Bundle: Includes the First Contact Suit, built by the SCAF for encounters with foreign entities, and a Negotiator, a Tesla Beam weapon capable of blasting a human-sized organism to pieces in a single shot.
  • “Witness the Truth” Bundle: Includes the Witness Suit, originally worn by a SCAF deep dig team, and an Evangelizer, a weapon with a souped-up AL-2g assault rifle on top and an Emerson 2100 “Big Boy” tactical shotgun on the bottom.

New Weapon Crafting System

By scavenging for raw materials and tool parts, Dead Space 3 players will be able to craft unique weapons to assist them in-game. Already have a weapon in mind? Visit www.deadspace.comand submit the weapon of your dreams. If you win, your tool (and your likeness) will be featured in game!
