EA Says Dead Space 3 DLC Will Include Game’s ‘Most Disturbing’ Content
Dead Space 3 has been available for just a few hours, and already we have an idea of what to expect from the game’s first DLC drop.
Electronic Arts announced the downloadable content package, dubbed “Awakened,” and noted that it’ll be not only scary, but “disturbing.”
According to EA’s press release, Awakened will see some of Dead Space 3′s “darkest chapters,” and will be the “most disturbing content … ever seen in a Dead Space game.”
Dead Space doesn’t exactly have a stellar track record when it comes to downloadable content or non-main game stories. The first Dead Space saw a number of tiny DLCs like suits and the like, as did Dead Space 2 (and now Dead Space 3). But Severed, two add-on chapters for Dead Space 2, didn’t really add much to the overall experience and was awful shooty, and the prequel Dead Space Ignition was pretty lackluster. Still, “dark” and “disturbing” sound promising.
The DLC will be available in March and run you $10.
We’re working on our extremely thorough Dead Space 3 review as we speak, so keep an eye out for it later this week.
