Electronic Arts announced that Dead Space, the new survival horror game, has gone gold and will ship in North America on October 14 for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3. The PC version will ship on October 20. Dead Space will be in stores in Europe on October 24 for the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 system and the PC.
Players who buy the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 versions of the game within the first two weeks of the game’s release will have the opportunity to download a platform exclusive suit. Xbox 360 fans can download the Xbox-themed Elite Suit on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PLAYSTATION 3 fans can download the PlayStation-themed Obsidian Suit on the PLAYSTATION Network. Both of these suits will feature new looks and increased toughness and inventory slots, to help players fight for survival in the Dead Space universe.
The bold and often bloody Dead Space promises to deliver the ultimate in psychological terror and gruesome cinematic action. Set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere in Dead Space is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of mining engineer Isaac Clarke, an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It’s not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare filled with vicious genetic mutations inside a dead, claustrophobic silence. Now Isaac is cut off, trapped, and engaged in a desperate fight for survival.
Under development at EA Redwood Shores, Dead Space will be available on the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, and the PC. For more information about the game, go to the website at http://www.deadspacegame.com.
