If you decide to pre-order Dead Space 2 from either Game or Gamestation, EA will give you Dead Space Ignition for free, Eurogamer reports. The downloadable prequel would normally costs 400 MS Points (£3.43/€4.80) or £4.99 on PSN when it’s released this Wednesday but securing a copy of Dead Space 2 from one of the two retailers does away with the need for money.
What’s nice about this initiative is that it’s content which is available to everybody and not just those who pre-ordered. Especially since the story of the comic-styled adventure from DSI should keep the continuity between Dead Space 1 and 2 so limiting the audience wouldn’t do EA any favours.
Dead Space 2 is out January 28th 2011 and its prequel, Dead Space Ignition comes to Xbox 360 and PS3 Wednesday October 13th.
