As announced in Cologne Germany, the Limited Edition of Dead Space 3 will be released February 8 and will feature a couple bonuses. I was not said if this Limited Edition will be like that of the recent Need for Speed games which only released as a “limited” Edition, at least here in North America. Regardless, those who pick up this version of the game will have some extras to begin their horrific space adventure with.
The Dead Space 3 Limited Edition provides gamers with first access to two game bundles: “First Contact” and “Witness the Truth” – each of which contains a new suit and new weapon. These weapon combinations act as an intro for the millions of permutations players will be able to create using the all-new weapon crafting system in the game.
“First Contact” Bundle
· First Contact Suit: This unique EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) suit sports a flamboyant golden finish to provide protection from long-term space exposure and thicker armour for. 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.
