EA’s Dead Space was an excellent sci-fi game. And probably the best “Alien” game ever made. The game recreated the gritty-lived in sci-fi environment that made Alien so great, and tossed in the “oh crap what was that” style scares you’d expect from a sci-fi/horror movie. Well, the sequel is coming out in January and EA has announced that if you pre-order it, you’ll get the downloadable prequel for free.
â€œDead Space fans are hungry for more Necromorph action and weâ€™re thrilled that they donâ€™t have to wait until January to get their fix. Dead Space Ignition is a great way to jump back into the Dead Space universe while the Visceral development team completes the final stages of Dead Space 2,â€ said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer, Dead Space franchise. â€œDead Space Ignition will show fans what happens in the hours leading up to the beginning of Dead Space 2 with gameplay that is fast-paced and accessible. Itâ€™s a fun way to dig deeper into the fiction, while allowing core fans to give Isaac Clarke an edge in Dead Space 2.â€
If you don’t want to pre-order, you can download Ignition for $5 on PSN or 400 MS points on XBLA next week.
