EA really put it best, "The holidays might be over, but EA has one more gift for gamers!" That gift? A content packed Dead Space 3 demo coming out at the end of January.
Ahead of its heavily anticipated launch in February, Dead Space 3 puts players at the reigns of series protagonist and hero Isaac Clarke as he crash lands on a new and mysterious ice planet. Of course though, things go awry when Isaac is confronted with necromorphs at every turn. But hey, it wouldn't be Dead Space without the shadow stalkers, right?
Dead Space 3 is also the first game in the series' history to include a drop-in/drop-out co-op mode that will allow gamers to play as both Isaac Clarke and his new companion Sgt. John Carver. As you progress through the co-op you'll also unlock exciting story driven revelations that fill in details from the single player.
Xbox 360 gamers will get a piece of the pie one week earlier than their PlayStation 3 brethren by signing up here, the official Dead Space demo website. Until the demo drops, why not check out this awesome Dead Space inspired cosplay?
