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."
