EA and Visceral announced a date for the Dead Space 2 digital download pack Severed, today.

Releasing on March 1 on XBL and PSN (UK PSN users get it March 2), Dead Space 2: Severed extends the game’s story with the addition of two stand-alone single-player chapters, telling the story of Gabe Weller

Here’s his story: “As a security officer, Weller comes equipped with a one-of-a-kind security suit and an upgraded, more powerful Pulse Rifle that will help him unleash his own blood-curdling adventure across the Sprawl. Lurking behind every corner is another bloodthirsty monster but the big surprise for Weller (and fans) is the return of the Twitcher, a grotesque enemy who first appeared in the original Dead Space game.”
