Now that the early access period has come to a close and all of those snobby code holders can no longer fly their flag of exclusivity (including us…), the excellent Dead Space 3 demo is now available on Xbox LIVE!
Currently only offered to Xbox LIVE Gold members (who are able to make further use of that exclusivity flag), the Dead Space 3 demo weighs in at 1.93 GB and will give you just a sneak peek taste of the horror and action to come in the full game.
Here’s what to expect in the Dead Space 3 demo:
“Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts.
“He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customize weapons and survival tools. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague forever, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing deadlier evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s.”
“Play together with a friend or go it alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless new drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Each mode offers unique story elements and gameplay.”
Phew, that’s quite a description, but we can confirm it’s all very accurate!
