Dead Space 3 launched today in North America, and publisher Electronic Arts is already readying the game's first expansion. EA today announced Dead Space 3 Awakened, a "disturbing" piece of downloadable content due out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in March for $10.
The Awakened expansion for Dead Space 3 introduces players to the franchise's "darkest chapters," EA said. Visceral Games general manager Steve Papoutsis said Awakened will represent some of the "most disturbing content [players] have ever seen in a Dead Space game."
