Because what says peace on Earth and good will towards men better than blood soaked, horribly mutated necromorphs chasing down terrified people in a gigantic space station?
Now things with tentacles make me excited…
Wait, let me start this again.
I like monsters. Big ol’ giant space monsters. Dead Space gave me that in droves. The sequel promises me more space monsters. Bigger space monsters. I like it already. I also got the chance to play the multiplayer beta, and let me tell you, it is the real deal. I didn’t think multiplayer horror could be fun. I was proven wrong. Ever since then I’ve been craving more of this universe and its plethora of space monsters. EA thinks this is a fine idea and, on December 21, is releasing a demo for Dead Space 2 to hype people up before the game launches on January 25 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
“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 gonna be awesome.”
The Dead Space 2 demo will be live on Xbox Live and the Playstation Network on December 21 for North America and December 22 in Europe.
