Visceral Unveils Release Date for Dead Space 3

During the Electronic Arts press conference today at gamescom, Visceral Games took the stage to not only show off more gameplay footage of the highly anticipated Dead Space 3, but also reveal the game’s official release date.

This third entry in EA’s space horror franchise will launch on February 5th in North America and three days later on the 8th in Europe. From what we’ve seen of the game thus far, it’s on track to blow its predecessors out of the water.

With a fully featured weapon crafting system, an ambitious co-op mode, and cinematic set piece moments that would make Nathan Drake blush, there’s plenty of reason to be hyped for Dead Space 3.

Are you excited for Visceral’s third installment in the series? Let us know in the comments below. And while you wait for February to roll around, head over to our E3 preview of the game to find out why we love it so much.
