Dead Space Save File Unlocks Original Plasma Cutter in Dead Space 2

By Xav de Matos, Jan 03, 2011 8:15am PST Fans of the original Dead Space are in for a special treat when they grab their copy of Dead Space 2 later this month. If you have a save file for the original title, whether you've completed the game or not, you'll unlock the original Plasma Cutter weapon for immediate use in Dead Space 2, Viceral Games programmer Louis Gascoigne tweeted.

However, nabbing the extra weapon won't give Isaac Clarke an immediate advantage over the menacing Necromorphs. Gascoigne told Joystiq the unlock will not carry over any upgrades made to the weapon in the original Dead Space. Basically, Isaac is still going to have a really long and horrible day.

The original weapon became the go-to selection for hardcore Achievement and Trophy hunters who battled through the entire original title with the game's primary weapon, giving them a little extra nerd cred for being loyal to the cutting machine.

  • First game of 2011 I'm looking forward to. The first Dead Space was everything Resident Evil 5 should have been (more like RE4 but upgraded in every way), and I'm SO GLAD they decided to put this on PC after all.

    2011 is going to be an amazing year for games, and DS2 is the opening gunshot. We haven't had a year this chock full of huge anticipated releases since 2007.

    Between this, the 3DS, Diablo III, Portal 2, LA Noire, Natural Selection 2, Crysis 2, FREAKING ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM, Rage and a whole bunch of others I'm completely forgetting off the top of my head, I'm already calling 2011 as the best year yet for the current generation.

    (sorry about the caps with TESV - shouting with elation at the top of my lungs is my natural gut reaction for future TES games)
