EA Brings the Terror to Space in
Dead Space 2

Sequel to Award-Winning Horror
Game Delivers Intense, Personal Saga that Sends Chills through Deep Space

Visceral Games announced today that
the award-winning Dead Space franchise will continue to frighten gamers with its
stunning sequel, Dead Space 2. Hero Isaac Clarke returns for another
heart-pounding adventure, taking the fight to the Necromorphs in this thrilling
action-horror experience. New tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the
Necromorphs complement Isaac’s signature Plasma Cutter, empowering him as he
meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a
relentless necromorph onslaught. Survival isn’t the only thing on Isaac’s mind
in Dead Space 2 – this time, he calls the shots.

“Like so many gamers worldwide, we
love the Dead Space franchise and are very excited to announce a new game in the
series,” said Nick Earl, Senior VP and Group General Manager at EA. “Visceral
Games is quickly becoming known for delivering high-quality, action-packed
games. Dead Space 2 is on target to deliver a jaw-dropping experience gamers
won’t soon forget.”

“We’re thrilled to jump back into
the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey. The infection continues
to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to
contain it. There are still loads of necromorphs that need killing!” said Steve
Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2. “In Dead Space 2, not everything
is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge
cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of
you.”

Originally launched in 2008, Dead
Space quickly became one of EA’s top rated wholly-owned intellectual properties.
With close to 100 industry awards and an average critic score of 89*, Dead Space
became a hit with horror and videogame fans worldwide. In 2009, EA launched Dead
Space Extraction, a prequel to the original Dead Space that expanded the fiction
and brought the franchise to a new audience base.

Dead Space 2 is being developed for
the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and on PC. This product has not yet rated by
ESRB or PEGI. Follow us on twitter at:
