Isaac Clarke’s latest adventure has proven divisive among Dead Space fans. The move away from dark, claustrophobic corridors, and the introduction of co-op — even optional — has angered fans of the first two games. Personally, I’m all for it. Dead Space 3 wasn’t the strongest entry in the series, but the optional co-op was a welcome addition and it still manages a few scares, even if they are few and far between. With Awakened, we’ll see what happened to Isaac and Carver after the events in the main game. The DLC will return the game to its roots with a focus on the dementia moments which are just one of the side effects of being in close proximity to the Markers — the other being a slow and agonizing death.
Awakened launches on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 for $10 (800 MSP) on March 12th. Check out a trailer and some screenshots after the break.
