Dead Space 2 players will be able to try their hand against the game’s developers in Red Dead Redemption-style multiplayer events, Visceral producer Shereif Fattouh told VG247 today.

“Definitely,” said Fattouh when asked if the public will get a crack at the people behind the EA horror.

“I think there’s some details about that coming soon. There’ll be some ‘game against the dev’ stuff going on. I don’t know the exact details of the ones that are coming up.”

Fattouh, speaking at a press event in Sydney today, pointed to a map called Solar as one with particular merits.

“That’s one of my favourite ones,” he said. “I really love the environmental layout. It’s just a lot of fun. The vent locations for the necromorphs are pretty strategically placed. I love poppin’ out.”

He added: “I like playing as the humans, too, but in Solar in particular I love playing the necromorphs, and there’s a lot of areas that catch people by surprise.”

Dead Space 2 is the first game in the IP to have full-on multiplayer, and will feature team-based necromorph versus human action.

Take a look here.

The game’s out for PC, PS3 and 360 on January 25.
