Dead Space 3 Awakened Brings Back The Scares

A common complaint of last month’s Dead Space 3 was that it removed the scares of previous games in favor of more action-oriented gameplay. In fact, the only real scares to be had were in the form of hallucinations experienced by new co-op partner John Carver. Now those hallucinations are making their way back to franchise protagonist Isaac Clarke.

EA announced last month that the first piece of DLC for Dead Space 3 would be called “Awakened.” A new trailer released today finally reveals more details on the expansion. Awakened takes place directly after the events of the main game, and features our two heroes facing off against a group of Unitologists on board a derelict ship. The DLC promises plenty of scares so those disappointed in Dead Space 3 might find more to like here.

Dead Space 3 Awakened will launch on PSN, Xbox Live and Origin for PC on March 12.

    Typical ea. here buy this sixty dollar game that is incomplete and unsatisfiying and then making people pay more money for what they should have been given in the first place. I fucking hate developers that make dlc that is essential to the game. When you spend sixty dollars you shouldn’t have to keep shelling out twenty dollars every few months to get the rest of the game. Dlc is supposed to add the the game experience, it’s not supposed to be the goddamned game that I though I was getting when I spent sixty at the store. It’s fucking despicable and it’s annoying as hell that they rush out these incomplete games and the force you to pay through the nose to get the rest of it. We can all see what ea and other developers are doing with dlc and it is greedy and disgusting.

    The first 10 minutes of the DLC contained more scares than the entire game combined. Visceral has outdone themselves, too bad EA is still just a money-grabbing whorehouse.

    I thought Dead Space 3 was a good game. I agree with what people are saying about it not being as scary as the original. I wish Viceral games could get the license to do an proper Aliens game.
