REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The holidays might be over, but EA has one more gift for gamers!
Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio, today
announced that a downloadable demo for Dead Space™ 3, the
first entertainment blockbuster of 2013, will be available for download
on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network starting on January 22.
Exclusively for Xbox 360, gamers who want a chance to play the demo one
week early, can sign up on http://demo.deadspace.com.*
In the demo, players will be thrust into deep space terror when
unwilling hero — Isaac Clarke — and all-new co-op companion — Sergeant
John Carver — crash land on Tau Volantis, an unforgiving ice planet
teeming with Necromorphs. Dead Space 3 takes the franchise's core
elements of suspense, horror, action and sound and introduces them to
all-new elements — including co-op play - that allows players to work
together to take down the most ambitious Dead Space experience
yet. Dead Space 3 launches in North America on February 5 on Xbox
360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer
entertainment system and PC and February 8 in Europe.
Winner of more than 15 critic awards at E3 2012 including Best of Show
from Game Informer Magazine, Dead Space 3 cuts
to the heart of deep space terror. The game is recognized by game
critics worldwide for its incredible craftsmanship in horror, action,
suspense and sound design. Players will embark on a thrilling ride
through space that takes them to a hostile new planet, Tau Volantis.
Fortunately, they are not alone this time around. The fully integrated
drop-in/drop-out co-op feature gives players the option to play alone or
team-up with a friend anytime. Players that choose to take down the
terror together will experience additional story details, side missions
and gameplay mechanics only found when playing as John Carver.
Dead Space 3 will be available on February 5 in North America and
February 8 in Europe for the PS3, Xbox 360 and the PC.
