EA confirms Dead Space 2

EA announces sequel to popular sci-fi survival-horror, arriving on Xbox 360, PS3, and Windows PCs sometime in 2010.

Celebrating 'necromorphic' alien dismemberment with verve, Visceral Games today announced Dead Space 2, sequel to last year's space-based survival horror game about slicing renegades from John Carpenter's The Thing into giblets.

As Isaac ("Asimov Arthur C.") Clarke, you'll get to be proactive for a change, "taking the fight to the Necromorphs" wielding "new tools to gruesomely slice and dismember" all those legions of spasmodic creepy-crawly aliens.

"We're thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac's journey," said Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer of Dead Space 2 in the press release. "The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of necromorphs that need killing!"

"In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you."

Sounds like there may be a special control element in play as well, though all EA's dishing is that "this time [you] call the shots."

Look for it on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC sometime next year.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
