Does Dead Space 3 look awesome? OF COURSE. Am I a little nervous about it? Definitely. Will that stop me from buying it? Hellz no. If you pre-order the game you can get yourself some goodies that will help you early on in your game. Head past the break for info about all the pre-order stuff you can get, some screens, and a new trailer from Gamescom. Even cooler than that? You can craft your own weapons in Dead Space 3. But it’s not duct taping shit together, it’s making actual weapons the way you want them. Plasma cutter with a flamtehrower on the bottom? Fuck yeah. Head past the break to check out a video all about it.
Pre-ordering the game gets you access to 2 bundles, the First Contact, and Witness The Truth Bundles. Read about them below.
“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.
