Mass Effect 3 owners unlock N7 armour in Dead Space 3

EA's latest cross-promotion gives iconic threads, but gamers will need a save file on the same platform to get N7 armour for both Isaac and Carver.


Dead Space 3 will give Isaac Clarke the chance to don his own suit of N7 armour, provided players have a Mass Effect 3 save file sitting on their hard drive.

Commander Shepard's iconic armour has been modified slightly to allow for Clarke's headgear, and at present it's not know what in-game benefits the armour has - in previous Dead Space games each different suit of armour has offered various degrees of protection from Necromorph enemies.

There's no way to unlock the armour between platforms, so if gamers intend to play Dead Space 3 on Xbox 360, they'll need an Xbox 360 Mass Effect 3 save.

Isaac's co-op buddy John Carver also gets his own N7 kit with a red tint.

EA is no stranger to cross-promotion, offering a similar Mass Effect costume incentive for last year's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning as well as Isaac Clarke himself in Skate 3.

Dead Space 3 will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on February 5 in the US and February 8 in Europe. Check out GameSpot's previous Dead Space 3 coverage for more information.
