Dead Space 3 will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on February 5. But if you want to give the first co-op entry in the series a tryout before you buy it, you’ll be happy to know that EA is adding a demo to the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network on January 22. And if you own an Xbox 360, you can download it a week early (on January 15) by signing up for early access to the demo at demo.DeadSpace.com.
In the demo, players will be thrust into deep space terror when unwilling hero – Isaac Clarke – and all-new co-op companion – Sergeant John Carver – crash land on Tau Volantis, an unforgiving ice planet teeming with Necromorphs.
If you need a refreshed course on the entire Dead Space saga, be sure to check out the “Story So Far” trailer that EA released yesterday.
