Did you not think you'd get a Dead Space 3 limited edition? Oh, how naive you are. Yes, one is coming, and it gives players first access to two "bundles" planned for Visceral's action-horror sequel. DLC bundles, that is. Lots and lots of tasty DLC.
The two bundles are called "First Contact" and "Witness the Truth," with each one containing a unique suit and weapon. Details for each are listed below.
So there you go. Now I've got this feeling that the newly announced weapon crafting is just a way to sell us more stuff down the line. I know you too well by now, EA.
By the way, do help yourself to the new trailer, available above.
“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.
