Rumored Dead Space 2 Multiplayer Details Emerge
In space, no one can hear you scream...unless youre screaming into your voice chat headset, probably. GamerNode reports (via Eurogamer) that at the annual GameStop conference in San Antonio, Electronic Arts evidently revealed a little bit more about Dead Space 2s previously outed multiplayer mode.
The mode will apparently involve "soldiers" (which we assume means characters thatll play the same as single-player protagonist Isaac), and the series main enemies, Necromorphs. This would tie in with what EA CEO John Riccitello previously said about Dead Space 2s multiplayer being "innovative," in that it sounds like itll try and replicate the horror atmosphere of the single-player game, while putting actual human beings in control of the horrors. This wont be the only multiplayer mode, either, as EA apparently also said there will be more modes to announce later.
GamerNode also says EA detailed some of the pre-order incentives thatll be offered for Dead Space 2, including an in-game "Rivet Gun" if you pre-order at GameStop, and (even better) the downloadable prequel Dead Space: Ignition for free no matter where you pre-order.
Dead Space 2 is set for release next year, on January 25.
