Today EA announced that a demo for the upcoming Dead Space 2 would be available starting December 21st. The demo will have players taking control over Issac as he gets “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.” The producer on the game, Steve Papoutsis, had the following to say about the demo.
“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 Papoutsis. 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.”
That all sounds fine by me. Dead Space was an incredible game and I’ve been waiting a while for Dead Space 2. I’m really looking forward to playing it and news of a demo has me even more excited.
Remember to pick up the full game when it launches on January 25th!
