Dead Space 3 demo jumps out of monster closet in January

Dead Space 3 is shaping up quite different to earlier games in the scary shooter series, with action-y additions like drop-in co-op and human enemies. It seems to work, from what we've seen so far, but you'll get to judge for yourself in January when a demo hits consoles.

The demo is up for download on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 22, but Xboxers can get it a week early if they sign up for one of the limited early access codes. No word on a PC demo, sorry gang. EA's a bit vague on what the demo contains, saying only that you'll see monsters and meet Isaac's new co-op chum.

Dead Space 3 is blasting onto PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 5.
