Today at its Gamescom press briefing, EA showed off the upcoming Dead Space 3, and announced a release date for the game. You'll be able to off necromorphs with a co-op buddy starting on February 5 of next year. The company is also offering bonuses for pre-ordering the Limited Edition.

Limited Edition pre-orders will get both the "First Contact" and "Witness the Truth" bundles, each of which includes a suit and weapon. First Contact comes with the Extra-Vehicular Activity suit, a bright red suit with thick armor, and the Negotiator weapon, a handheld Tesla beam with a bottom-mounted Linegun. Witness the Truth grants you spooky graffiti as put on the suits of a dig team that found something disturbing underground. It also packs the Evangelizer weapon, which is a standard assault rifle similarly decorated with symbols. Both weapons can be used as starter models for the new weapon crafting system as well.

Generally, an EA "Limited Edition" is the standard game with some extra goodies to reward you for pre-ordering, which is likely the case here as well. Shacknews will update as more information becomes available.

      After Dead Space 2, I'll wait for this to go on sale.

          2 wasn't as scary as the 1st and was a little more action orientated but it was still a great game.. good enough for me to complete multiple times including on the stupid difficulty that only allows you to save 3 times for the entirety of the game.

            That's too bad, because that's what made #1 so awesome. Even my wife sat down to watch me play during certain parts.

          #2 was as good or better than DS1 in every way. It was a great sequel.

          I have to take a moment to remember what the hell even happened in 2 is was so boring an generic. It was like a paint by numbers scary movie experience. The difficulty also took a slight curve to stupid at the end with sections where it wasn't obvious that there were infinite respawning monster closets.

            I really did not like Dead Space 2. At all.

        2 was fine, but given what they appear to be doing with 3 I'll hold off.

        Dead Space 2 was awesome, just like Dead Space 1 was. I'm iffy about 3 though.

      February is the new September.

      (IIRC, Bioshock Infinite is still slated the week after)
