Somewhere in the back of my space-scarred and delirious mind, I knew that there was some DLC for Dead Space 3 in the pipeline. I'd intended to write a reminder to be annoyed about it on a post-it note because it was announced before the game had even been released and contained what sounded very much like the end of the story. Even though I enjoyed Isaac's latest escapade, it didn't leave me wanting more, which is perhaps why I'd forgotten all about The Awakened. It's out tomorrow and there's a trailer below.
If you haven't finished Dead Space 3, plan to, and care about the story as well as the severance, beware.
Carver slapping Isaac is the best. Can we have an Odd Couple themed sequel starring the two of them sharing an apartment on some horrible moon colony? Isaac would always be moping and hallucinating about his dead friends and lovers, and Carver would yell at him for babbling inanely while the big game is on TV, or gibbering and swearing at the dishes instead of washing them.
Despite The Slap, The Awakened does seem to be at least a little bit spookier than the base game.
Left for dead on Tau Volantis, Isaac Clarke and John Carver face a daunting journey. As madness takes hold, they find they can't trust their eyes or each other. The trek leads to the ship Terra Nova, now home to a sadistic cult of Unitologists.
Damn those Unitologists.
Price should be around $9.99.
