EA have unveiled a concrete release date for Dead Space 3, specifying 8 February 2013 across Europe, while fans who pre-order the Dead Space 3 limited edition will have the advantage of using two bonus suits and weapons from the game’s start.
The two game bundles – ‘First Contact’ and ‘Witness the Truth’ – contain hand-crafted weapon combinations which act as initial blueprints for the millions of permutations players will be able to create using the freshly announced weapon crafting system in the game.
First Contact Bundle
First Contact Suit: This unique EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) suit was built by the SCAF (Sovereign Colonies Armed Forces) for encounters with foreign entities. It sports a flamboyant golden finish to provide protection from long-term space exposure and thick armor for… unspecified reasons. The suit was given the nickname ‘First Contact’ by the scientists who made it.
Negotiator Weapon: While technically classified by the SCAF as a “scientific instrument,” the gold-plated Negotiator is loaded with some surprisingly aggressive hardware. The overclocked, top-mounted Tesla Beam is capable of bursting a man-sized organism into several pieces with a single shot. The bottom-mounted Linegun appears to have been built with the sole purpose of cleanly dismembering organic tissue from a distance.
Witness the Truth Bundle
Witness Suit: These insulated suits were worn by a SCAF deep dig team assigned to exhume the darkest secrets of Tau Volantis. Whatever they found locked deep in the ice changed them forever. When they emerged weeks later, they were covered head to toe in strange graffiti and claimed to be ‘Witnesses to the Truth.’
Evangelizer Weapon: A modification of the standard AL-2 used by the Sovereign Colonies Legionaries, this version sports a souped-up AL-2g assault rifle on the top with an Emerson 2100 “Big Boy” tactical shotgun on the bottom. The surviving witnesses of the SCAF deep dig team dubbed it the Evangelizer and decorated them top to bottom with strange symbols.
