Dead Space 3: Awakened is Visceral Games’ first story DLC pack, and it’ll land on all formats from march 12th. We’ve also just received a batch of screens.

Joystiq reports that Awakened sits within the game’s campaign, and sees Isaac and John Carver exploring the CMS Terra Nova’s tower, which is now teeming with savage cultists who have been performing grim human sacrifices.

Producer Shereif Fattouh told the site that it’s scarier than the core game which, luckily, fits in with the demands of the community, “We had a vision for what we wanted to make with our DLC.

“The nice thing about it is it kind of married into what some of the more hardcore community guys were asking for. They didn’t feel that there was as much horror as they would have liked [in Dead Space 3].

“It really fit well with what we were planning to do with this DLC [in] trying to create a creepy, scary atmosphere that we still think is a big part of the Dead Space franchise and has always been a part of it.”

The DLC is said to be several hours long, and it will throw new Necromorph and human enemies into the mix.

We’ll have more as the pack launches.
