The world of Dead Space continues to evolve as hero Isaac Clark faces horrific demons that live in deep space — and in his own mind. Available starting today, Dead Space 3 Awakened is a digital expansion pack for Dead Space 3 playable in single player and co-op.
In Dead Space 3 Awakened, Isaac and John Carver face a daunting new journey — get off of Tau Volantis, repair the Terra Nova, and get back to Earth. This next chapter brings the intensity of the horror to new psychological heights. If you are on the fence when it comes to the original game then check out our Dead Space 3 review.
“Dead Space 3 Awakened is some of the most creative and unsettling content the team has ever created — it’s really going to test gamers’ psyche,” said Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and General Manager of Visceral Games and Executive Producer on Dead Space 3. “We’ve put Isaac and now Carver through a lot in the franchise, but these seasoned vets are experts when it comes to taking down the terror. We can’t wait to see who is brave enough to venture further into the horrors that lie within Awakened.”
In Dead Space 3 Awakened, gamers will experience the franchise’s darkest chapters in a story that serves as an extension of the Dead Space 3 saga. Awakened begins when the game ends and continues the adventure for Isaac and Carver who have been left for dead on the devastated planet of Tau Volantis. The two men must escape from the abandoned planet, repair the Terra Nova, and find their way back to Earth. Only one problem: blood-thirsty Necromorphs continue to attack. The solidarity among the two is further threatened as Isaac’s madness sets in. Haunted by images of the Unitologists, insanity takes hold and the two survivors realize they can no longer trust each other. Unsure of what is real, and what is a hallucination, Isaac and Carver struggle through pulse-pounding fights and frights, trying to makes sense of what’s really happening.
Finally Isaac’s mental problems return – this was a major part of the creepy atmosphere in the first two games that was glossed over in the main Dead Space 3 game, sacrificing some of the scaryness along with it. This new expansion sounds like it has the potential to bring that all back with a blood curdling scream.
