The holidays might be over, but EA has one more gift for gamers! Visceral Games has announced that a downloadable demo for Dead Space 3, 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 launches in North America on February 5 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and February 8 in Europe. In addition to dropping the demo news, Visceral has also released a brand new trailer for the game entitled “Dead Space 3 – The Story so Far”. The trailer runs just short of 4 minutes and gives players tons of insight into the franchise if they’ve never played either of the previous titles. If you have, it should serve as a solid refresher course.
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.
