Visceral Games, an EA studio will release Dead Space Ignition on PSN in Fall/Winter 2010, an all-new downloadable game that takes place on the Sprawl, a prequel to the upcoming game Dead Space 2 that challenges players to survive the events leading up to the full sequel. Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer on the Dead Space franchise promises that Dead Space Ignition is one of many exciting game extensions they have planned for the launch of Dead Space 2.
Dead Space Ignition combines an interactive comic-style story with three unique hacking mini games that each offer a fun and satisfying arcade experience that will challenge players with puzzles and twitch gameplay. Dead Space Ignition features a unique “Choose Your Own Adventure” type narrative, allowing players to survive the horrific Necromorph outbreak in multiple ways. The game offers four unique endings and upon completion of each one, players will be rewarded with unlocks including an exclusive suit, all of which can be used by Isaac Clarke in Dead Space 2 when the game releases on January 25th 2011.
I can’t wait for Dead Space 2. The first game was a work of art and the sequel looks set to turn everything up to eleven, but with such a long wait for the game I’m glad we’ll have at least something like this to give us a taster of the greatness to come. I’ll definitely be checking this out when it releases.
