Let’s start with a bit of background.
Dead Space Ignition reveals the events leading up to Dead Space 2 and players will be rewarded with exclusive unlocks for Dead Space 2, including an exclusive Hacker suit. The story takes places in the hours prior to Dead Space 2 and will give gamers the chance to reacquaint themselves with the Dead Space story.
Dead Space Ignition combines an interactive comic-style story with three unique hacking games; Hardware Crack, Trace Route and System Override. Each game offers a fun arcade experience that will challenge players with puzzles and twitch gameplay. Dead Space Ignition features a unique “Choose Your Own Adventure” type narrative, allowing players to survive the initial Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl in multiple ways, with four different endings. The story was written by Antony Johnston, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of comics, graphic novels, video games and books including Wasteland, and Daredevil.
Dead Space Ignition can also be purchased as a stand-alone game for £4.99 October 12 on the PlayStation®Network and October 13 on Xbox LIVETM Marketplace for 400 MS points.
