This new installment in the Dead Space universe is definitely bringing some new changes to the table. A co-op multiplayer, a new ducking/dodging system, and more extreme gameplay through varied environments are all confirmed features. Many retailers are providing pre-order bonuses for this title, but some are offering a little bit extra Dead Space 3 DLC goodness. This title will release on 2/15/2013.
The limited edition is included with many pre-orders and includes:
- Witness Suit: These insulated suits were worn by a SCAF deep-dig team assigned to exhume the darkest secrets of Tau Volantis. Whatever they found locked deep in the ice changed them forever. When they emerged weeks later, they were covered head to toe in strange graffiti and claimed to be “Witness to the Truth.”
- First Contact Suit: This unique EVA (extra-vehicular activity) suit was built by the SCAF for encounters with “foreign entities.” It sports a golden finish to provide protection from long-term space exposure and thick armor for … unspecified reasons. The scientist who made the suit gave it the nickname “First Contact.”
- Evangelizer Weapon: A modification of the standard AL-2 used by the Sovereign Colonies Legionaries, this version sports a souped-up AL-2g assault rifle on the top with an Emerson 2100 “Big Boy” tactical shotgun on the bottom. The surviving “Witnesses” of the SCAF deep-dig team dubbed it the “Evangelizer” and decorated them top to bottom with strange symbols.
- Negotiator Weapon: While technically classified by the SCAF as a “scientific instrument,” the gold-plated “Negotiator” sports some surprisingly aggressive hardware. The overclocked, top-mounted Tesla Beam is capable of bursting a man-size organism into several pieces with a single shot. The bottom-mounted Linegun appears to have been built with the sole purpose of cleanly dismembering organic tissue from a distance.
