Dead Space 3 launches for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC across North America today, and will follow this Friday February 8th in Europe.
EA and Visceral Games have just revealed the first downloadable content for the action horror game will be available in March. Titled Awakened, the new digital download pack will extend the brutal adventure, giving players the chance to experience the franchise’s “darkest chapters as the Necromorph battles become even more gruesome and terrifying than ever before.”
The Awakened DLC will be available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PC via Origin in March. It will be priced at 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99.
“With Dead Space 3 our goal was to evolve the franchise bringing in innovative new features like drop-in/drop-out co-op, weapon crafting, and an engaging atmosphere while still retaining the incredible suspense, horror, action and sound that the series is known for,” said 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.”
