EA’s just announced that a demo for Dead Space 2 will launch on December 21.
A demo released was hinted at over the weekend by producer Steve Papoutsis. Its release will arrive five weeks before the launch of the full game itself at the end of January.
The DS2 demo will allow players to control Issac as he gets “access to a variety of new tools that Isaac can use to fight Necromorphs, including the new Javelin gun, updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability.”
You’ll “also experience the advanced suit, equipped with jets that will allow Isaac full 3600 control in Zero-G space.”
“The holidays are a great time to enjoy all forms of entertainment, and we can’t wait to give horror and action adventure gamers a taste of what awaits them in Dead Space 2,” said Papoutsis.
“Releasing the demo five weeks before launch will not only re-connect players with our hero Isaac Clarke, but will also give them the opportunity to experience firsthand various jaw-dropping scenarios. It’s gonna be awesome.”
EU PSN users will get it on December 22.
No such luck for PC users though, as BigDownload has confirmed with EA PR there won’t be a PC demo released. Bummer.
Dead Space 2 launches on January 25 in the US and January 28 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
