Sure there's the notable exception of the occasional game like Bioshock 2 that offers a premium solo adventure (Minerva's Den), but how often does that really happen? Not very- which is why Visceral Games' first large scale DLC pack for it's hit action/horror title Dead Space 2 is such a breath of fresh air.
The content, actually an all new story expansion, is entitled Severed and takes place once again in the massive mega-city known as the Sprawl. But don't look for series protagonist Isac Clarke- the player character this time around is none other than Dead Space Extraction's security officer, Gabe Weller.
Gabe comes equipped with an enhanced Pulse Rifle as well as a custom security suit. Which he'll need as Severed also re-introduces the Twitcher- a baddie from the original game.
Dead Space Severed will be available March 2nd on the PSN and Xbox LIVE services. Full release is post jump along with a list of all the DLC armor and weapon packs that are available right now for the game-
Have you finished the new gold standard in action horror games known as Dead Space™2? Are you already screaming for more? If so, you’re not alone. Visceral Games has the answer with an all-new digital download pack -- Dead Space 2: Severed. Releasing on March 2, Dead Space 2: Severed extends the Dead Space 2 story with the addition of two stand-alone single-player chapters. This digital pack will take players through the haunting story of Gabe Weller, who fans will remember from the award-winning game Dead Space Extraction. As a security officer, Weller comes equipped with a one-of-a-kind security suit and an upgraded, more powerful Pulse Rifle that will help him unleash his own blood-curdling adventure across the Sprawl. Lurking behind every corner is another bloodthirsty monster but the big surprise for Weller (and fans) is the return of the Twitcher, a grotesque enemy who first appeared in the original Dead Space game.
Dead Space 2: Severed will be available March 2 on the PlayStation®Network in Europe for £5.49 or 560 MS Points.
