Dead Space 3 Release Date and Limited Edition Details AnnouncedToday, at Gamescom, EA announced the release date of the highly anticipated horror game’s third part. The publisher promises more than just a few Necromorphs and human enemies as obstacles for the fearless Isaac Clarke and his newly found partner, John Carver. Yes. Visceral Games managed to put two-player drop-in, drop-out co-op into the game which should help those along the journey who left the previous games unfinished because of the intense action and sometimes extremely scary parts.

Frozen planets with sub-zero temperature, a graveyard of derelict spaceships and sometimes the vast and empty space itself as the playground for the deadly duo, the game will escalate into a new level of terror and fear.

For people who pre-order Dead Space 3’s Limited Edition, Visceral Games announced two bonus suits and weapons available right from the start. The Limited Edition also comes with first access to two of the game bundles “First Contact” and “Witness the Truth” that will give you new advanced suits and new weapons. These handcrafted weapons will be available as blueprints and players will be able to create a huge variety of weapons along their journey for survival thanks to the 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 armour 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 will launch on 8th February 2013 (5 February, 2013 in North America) and will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
