You gotta hand it to the ESRB. Their job is to first: Play a game early before anyone else and second, tell you, the potential customer, about the game’s ‘rating’ in regard to the maturity content, level of blood, or just some crazy oddball facts. The best part? They’re often hilarious and are worth a good chuckle every now and then. The ESRB has rated the PSN ‘prequel’ to Dead Space 2, Dead Space: Ignition.
Since the day EA and Visceral Games unleashed the first details regarding Dead Space 2, fans have been wondering how the gameplay for the Multiplayer portion of the game is going to work. Thanks to the GameStop manager expo, details has trickled out, along with some mighty fine Pre-oder incentatives and if this doesn’t make you want to run out and pre-order Dead Space 2 ASAP, I’m not sure what will.
Of all the new original IPs EA has created and published so far this generation of consoles, none have been more popular or highly respected than Visceral Game’s Dead Space franchise. Released in late 2008, Dead Space went on to sell over 2 million copies, received a prequel game (for the Wii) in Dead Space: Extraction, received a comic book mini, action figures, and various other products related to the series. Dead Space 2 doesn’t hit until 2011, but that didn’t stop anyone from asking about Dead Space 3. Even IF Isaac doesn’t survive the sequel, the future is bright for this young franchise.
Fans of the Horror genre were give quite a gift in 2008 when EA and Visceral Games released to the world the tale of Isaac Clarke and his on-going battle against the demonic alien foes known as the ‘Necromorphs’. After barely surviving the battle against the Hive Mind on Aegis VII, Isaac escaped in one piece..but with his mind in pieces. Fast-forward three years..Isaac is now on the ‘Sprawl’ space station and the Necromorph menace has returned. EA and Visceral Games are offering fans of the series a chance to receive exclusive content via email and I promise you that it’s easier than having to splice a limb off a necromorph, that’s for sure.
Think about this for a minute..Dead Space is slowly, but surely, becoming EA’s biggest franchise behind Madden NFL. Sure the first game’s sales didn’t reach the numbers that they should have (EA blames the used game market), the game has a very solid and compassionate following now and EA isn’t afraid to throw plenty of tie-ins our way. What to know what happened to Isaac after he made contact with the marker? Buy Dead Space’s second animated film, AfterMath. Writer Christopher Shy is ready to tell you the tale of what happened to the USG Ishimura after Isaac made his escape. Dead Space: Ignition is an interactive comic-book style prequel that hits the PSN this fall. Dead Space: Sabotage is..oh, wait. Hold your necromorphs. EA nor Visceral Games have announced DS: Sabotage, have they? Read about this discovery inside before you get your head severed!
