EA sent out a press release today to let everyone know that the demo for Dead Space 3 will be available starting Jan. 22 on Xbox 360 and PS3. Unless you go to demo.deadspace.com and sign up for early access, in which case you're going to get access a week earlier, on Jan. 15. And that only applies to Xbox 360 gamers. Curse Microsoft and its deep pockets!
Here's the official teaser for the demo's content:
In the demo, players will be thrust into deep space terror when unwilling hero – Isaac Clarke – and all-new co-op companion – Sergeant John Carver – crash land on Tau Volantis, an unforgiving ice planet teeming with Necromorphs. Dead Space 3 takes the franchise's core elements of suspense, horror, action and sound and introduces them to all-new elements – including co-op play - that allows players to work together to take down the most ambitious Dead Space experience yet.
Play the demo yourself and find out for certain whether Dead Space is still a horror game, or if it's more of an action shooter at this point. Dead Space 3 drops from orbit on Feb. 5.
