Dead Space 2 is just hitting shelves today and we’re already getting some rather exciting announcements regarding sequels and DLC. It would seem Dead Space 2 will be getting some DLC entitled ‘Severed’ that will play parallel to the story in the main game. If you own a Wii (or now, a PS3) you’ll probably recognize the two protagonists from Dead Space: Extraction, Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, who in the DLC live on the Sprawl after the events in Extraction.
The DLC will be two chapters long and will hopefully be only our first taste of DLC for the game, with much to follow. No word yet on pricing or a release date but that’s where patience comes in. I hear it’s a virtue.
