Dead Space 3

The EG-900 SMG was built for urban warfare, EA said in a statement. "It's compact, but deadly, sporting an internal hyper-accelerator for maximum damage." As for the other gun, the Tesla Enervator weapon will deliver a precision blast that causes "instantaneous electrocution and molecular destabilization."

In addition to the retailer-specific preorder bonuses for Dead Space 3, all reservations will be automatically upgraded to the "Limited Edition" of the game, which includes two new suits and two new weapons.

Dead Space 3 is due out February 5, 2013 in North America for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with a release following in Europe on February 8. The game is the first entry in the action-horror series to feature cooperative play. Players will venture to a new planet called Tau Volantis as series hero Isaac Clarke, but will also be joined by newcomer John Carver.
