No Caption Provided Dead Space 2 only launched today for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, but developer Visceral Games is already readying the title's first batch of add-on content.

Announced today was the Severed downloadable content. The two-mission add-on pack brings Dead Space: Extraction characters Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock into the world of Dead Space 2. Specifically, gamers will play as Gabe, a Sprawl security guard, who must defeat the nefarious necromorphs and get himself and Lexine to safety.

Severed is set to be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year at an undisclosed price. Neither a price nor a release date was offered for the PC iteration of the expansion.

In addition to announcing the downloadable content, EA today noted that new copies of Dead Space 2 come bundled with an Online Pass code that enables full access to the game's online features. Those without a code can purchase one from Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network for 800 Microsoft points or $10.
