Continuing with special editions and exclusive deals, Sony had another one announced at their E3 press conference. Dead Space 2, the sequel to Visceral’s 2008 award-winning Dead Space, is getting a Limited Edition exclusively for the PlayStation 3 when it releases early next January.
The Limited Edition will include the once Wii-exclusive Dead Space Extraction, the prequel to the entire Dead Space story. It will come in glorious HD for the first time ever and will be Move-enabled. The single-player campaign will be there, enhanced with new trophies and a new multiplayer co-op mode. Further, Dead Space Extraction will be available as a standalone game on PlayStation Network.
“We’re thrilled to couple two terrifying experiences in one box. With the Limited Edition, PlayStation 3 fans will receive real insight into the cause of the necromorph infestation and the destruction that followed. This is the genesis of the dark and twisted world Isaac inhabits,” said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer on Dead Space 2. “The addition of support for PlayStation Move allows us to bring a truly unique experience that was previously unavailable to players and we can’t wait to see what they think.”
