EA’s announced it will offer Dead Space: Ignition for free with pre-orders of Dead Space 2.

The deal will apply to “participating retailers in North America.”

“Dead Space fans are hungry for more Necromorph action and we’re thrilled that they don’t have to wait until January to get their fix,” said exec producer Steve Papoutsis.

“Dead Space Ignition will show fans what happens in the hours leading up to the beginning of Dead Space 2 with gameplay that is fast-paced and accessible. It’s a fun way to dig deeper into the fiction, while allowing core fans to give Isaac Clarke an edge in Dead Space 2.”

A prequel to the main game itself, Ignition will detail the events that take place before Dead Space 2.

Dead Space: Ignition releases tomorrow separately on PSN in US, with a Wednesday release on XBLA and EU PSN.

Dead Space 2 releases on January 28, 2011 for PS3, 360 and PC.

    Will this be exactly like Dead Space I and II in terms of camera and gameplay or will it be different in that sense?

    @1: Ignition is a “text-based adventure game” if I remember correctly.
    Close to a graphic novel with a few elements of gameplay… which are limited to the execution of puzzles (so a graphic novel with a few interactive elements).

    Don’t know if “Ignition” wil be good or not, but I’d like this as a bonus (and with Extraction coming with it on the PS3, it adds even more value).

    I only hope DS2 will be compatible with the PS Move (only “Extraction” has been confirmed to be “ps move compatible”)

    I’ll be buying the collectors edition on PS3 with Extraction… if I could pre-order that and get Ignition as well I’d be glad.

    Lets hope the offer extends to the UK.

    iv seen the opening to this game, and unless they have changed it a lot, i think it will be as good as pub games was for fable 2.

    The dialog seems the worst to me, for example. the opening scene…

    man fixing equipment – “ah, gotcha, see that wasn’t so hard”
    woman walks in – “thats what she said!”

    ..really?! its not even a well delivered line!

    Dead Space 2 is looking great and you get extraction for free already and now ignition for free thats even better.

    @10 wow your so clever i know its so horrible EA is offering a free motion comic based game with pre orders how evil of them its so hard to pre order a game lol
