The folks over at EA have clearly become overwhelmed with the Holiday spirit as they are allowing gamers to delve into the world of Isaac Clarke a good five weeks before the release of Dead Space 2 with a demo being offered up to gamers worldwide from December 21st. The demo will allow players to discover the Church of Unitology and help Isaac defeat the Necromorph outbreak in a gruesome, unforgiving battle on The Sprawl so there should be plenty to entertain players until the full game’s release on January 25th 2011.
“The holidays are a great time to enjoy all forms of entertainment, and we can’t wait to give horror and action adventure gamers a taste of what awaits them in Dead Space 2,” said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of the Dead Space franchise. “Releasing the demo five weeks before launch will not only re-connect players with our hero Isaac Clarke, but will also give them the opportunity to experience firsthand various jaw-dropping scenarios. It’s going to be awesome”.
The Dead Space 2 demo will be available for download December 21 on Xbox Live Marketplace Worldwide and the PlayStation Network in North America. The demo will be available December 22 on PlayStation Network in Europe. Dead Space 2 will be available on Jan. 25, 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
