The first wave of post-launch DLC is on the way for Dead Space 3. It will feature single player and co-op play, new weapon parts and circuits to collect and will be set aside from the main storyline.
The DLC, titled as Awakened, is set immediately after the events of the game – so avoid reading on if you’re sensitive to spoilers.
The extra content, said to span several hours, follows Clarke and Carver as they attempt to find a way off Tau Volantis. They visit a new setting on one of the abandoned ships overhead and encounter unitologist survivors who are intent on keeping the necromorph virus alive – with grotesque means.
According to a write up from Polygon, the new content should be more popular among the Dead Space fans who lament the loss of some of the more horror-focused elements of the game. It’s due out next week for 800MSP or $9.99.
Here’s a trailer for the DLC:
