EA has released the Dead Space 3 demo on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this morning, giving you a chance to step into the shoes of Isaac Clarke a few weeks in advance. The demo also features co-op, so you and a friend can comb through Tau Volantis, scavenging for parts and taking down Necromorphs in style.
According to EA, the demo boasts:
Team Up in Co-op
Face your fears and take down the terror. Play the full demo alone or in co-op as Isaac Clarke and John Carver.
Scavenge for parts and build your own unique weapon. Access the weapons bench to combine, reconfigure, and adapt your arsenal to any situation.
Head planet-side and fight for your life in a hostile environment. Defeat evolved Necromorphs and prepare for the unexpected.
Better with Kinect
Add voice to your arsenal and amplify the action with Kinect in single player or co-op. Heal yourself by saying "Quick Heal" and give your co-op partner more ammunition by saying "Give Partner Ammo".
Unfortunately, if you plan on picking up Dead Space 3 on PC you won't be able to play a demo unless EA changes their minds in the next couple weeks. Check it out on Xbox 360 at http://marketplace.xbox.com/ and on PlayStation Network later this morning after the PSN store updates.
Dead Space 3 launches on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 5th, 2013.
