Dive into engineer Isaac Clarke's blood-curdling adventure five weeks before release as Visceral Games today announced a demo for the critically-acclaimed action horror game, Dead Space™ 2.
The demo, available in Australia and New Zealand on the evening of 22nd December 2010, will allow players to discover the Church of Unitology and help Isaac defeat the Necromorph outbreak in a gruesome, unforgiving battle on The Sprawl.
In the Dead Space 2 demo, players will take engineer Isaac Clarke on a terrifying adventure through the Church of Unitology, an expectedly "safe" place that quickly becomes dangerous and deadly, during the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl. Players will also have access to a variety of new tools that Isaac can use to fight Necromorphs, including the new Javelin gun, updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability. Players will also experience the advanced suit, equipped with jets that will allow Isaac full 3600 control in Zero-G space.
"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."
Dead Space 2 pushes the limits of action, horror and terror. After mysteriously awaking in a sprawling, massive city anchored to one of Saturn's moons, hero Isaac Clarke again finds himself thrust into the middle of a relentless Necromorph outbreak. Surrounded by the screeching cries of undead monsters and the haunting drum of echoing noises, Isaac plots a course through The Sprawl.
Dead Space 2 is set to deliver a truly epic terror experience that will bring the psychological thrills of deep space to a terrifyingly new level.
The Dead Space 2 demo will be available for download in Australia and New Zealand on the evening of 22nd December 2010 from PlayStation®Store. Dead Space 2 will be available 27th January 2011 on PlayStation®3.
Dead Space 2 has been rated MA15+ by the Australian Classification Board and contains strong horror violence, blood and gore.
