First expansion for action-horror game hits Xbox Live, PSN, and Origin next week for $10.
Dead Space 3's Awakened downloadable content will arrive March 12 on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Origin for PC worldwide for $10, according to a report from Polygon. The content will be made available in Europe one day later.
Awakened is set directly after the main game, and adds several hours of content to the Dead Space 3 campaign, featuring single-player and co-play gameplay. In addition, new weapon parts and circuits will be made available from the main game, the site reports.
The Awakened expansion for Dead Space 3 introduces players to the franchise's "darkest chapters," EA said in February. Visceral Games general manager Steve Papoutsis said Awakened will represent some of the "most disturbing content [players] have ever seen in a Dead Space game."
GameSpot's Dead Space 3 review praised the game's weapon crafting system, sense of atmosphere, environmental variety, and new co-op option, but lamented its story and certain gameplay sequences. For more, check out GameSpot's full review.
A recent report claimed EA had put the Dead Space series to rest after poor sales of Dead Space 3. EA addressed the suggestion, calling it "patently false."
@franzito Not to bitch about, but I expected that on Dead Space 2 on consoles and it hasn't come out yet.
LOL at the haters here. DS3 is great so far (havent finished yet), but I must be missing something. WHere does it say this is the "true ending"? Oh that's right it doesn't. Move along.
Sorry I'm not paying 60$ the game and 10$ each DLC, to much money. I'll just wait a couple of year for a GOTY edition with all the DLCs for 30$, meanwhile there's a sh*tload of games in my list waiting to be played.
reminds of the same bullshit of me3, cutting up the experience and saving what people actually wanted as paid dlc
So this is the real ending only that people have to part with their money once more to get it? Sorry EA you are not getting my money, DS3 is dead.
If this was an EXPANSION then it wouldn't cost just $10 so stop with the damn bullshit lies. This is DLC plain & simple.
I really want to know just how long Awakened is, give or take. Its more main story, so of course fans will want it, but I've heard that a majority of it takes place in Conning Tower (Terra Nova side mission location). If most of it takes place there, I can't figure out how they're stretching it to several hours. I expect it will be just like Severed, unfortunately -- Two locations from the main game, with a makeover. Who knows...at least this looks like it could have the scares that Dead Space 3 should have had throughout its campaign.
How can this be set after the main campaign? Isaac is dead. He sacrificed himself to destroy the marker homeworld. If he survived that ordeal, the storyline loses whatever little credibility it had left.
@jmace1 after the cradits he says something, he didn't die
@wexorian @jpeezy77 @jmace1 @gyhio I don't know what happened, but the way I think, it's a game about space zombies made by a statue...so I try not to poke holes on the plot and just enjoy the ride. more content? count me in, I really don't care how he survived, I just want new stuff to do. (it would be better if they explained how he survived, though.)
How does everyone know this is the "real" ending? Have you all played it? Frankly, I was satisfied with the current ending, but no one is happy if there isn't a flowery happy ending a guess. Just like ME3
Meh, I love Dead Space and will wholeheartedly buy this simply cause. If it weren't Dead Space I wouldn't even bother. Mass Effect I love just as much if not more but I really don't care to own ALL of its DLC, simply because I'll probably end up getting it in a GOTY Edition anyway or if they never release a GOTY then I'll never end up getting it.
*Face palm*. The only thing worse than EA pulling this sort of crap, are the lemmings that keep buying it.
Yeah, I'm definitely buying this. I can see how some would complain about this not being in the final product though, like the person that commented before me.
I really did enjoy DS3 and having to beaten it, I'm happy there more content to keep me playing the game. However, withholding the ending as a dlc is just greedy!
@mrpoohbearr It's not even about greedy. It's just plain WRONG. It's the principle of the matter which is a problem to us gamers when the game feels like the ending is missing.
@Printul_Noptii Got Tomb Raider !00% completed and the Multiplayer Sucks. FPS Games just bore me, shoot, run, shoot, run, shoot, run, shoot... I feel nothing for the character I am because I can't see them the majority of the game. :/
FUCK YOU!!!! I GOT MY COPY IN PS3 AND NOW THEY ARE GONNA SELL US THE ENDING DLC??? FUCK YOU.
These DLC SHOULD HAVE BEEN WHAT HAPPENED 200 YEARS AGO OR BEFORE CARTER FOUND ISACC CLARK BUT NOT THESE BULLSHIT.
What's the point of paying $60 bucks for the game if it doesn't even include a real ending? On top of that EA spits in their fans face and tells us to cough up another $10 bucks if you want the "true ending". They can take their dlc and shove it.

@berserker66666 It's hard to get a refund on anything nowadays. It's simply madness when a game is obviously broken. If any other product is defective you'd expect to get a refund, why not the same with games? EA aren't the only ones that hide behind policy forgetting it's not the law. The action of deleting someones account if they dispute a decision is just wrong. Absolutely no need for that kind of threatening behaviour.
@istuffedsunny I wish the same were true for Mass Effect 3.
@berserker66666 What's worse, chances are it's story critical content and not optional "address loose ends" kind of content.

With an unsatisfying story and rehashed gameplay, Dead Space 3: Awakened makes a strong case for letting sleeping dogs lie.
