EA today announced a huge amount of downloadable content for Dead Space. Sure, most of you have already beaten the great game and gone on to your next fix but here’s some incentive to fire your system of choice up for another round through. It goes much quicker the second time, trust me.
There’s two problems with this new stuff, though. First of all it’s all you’ve got to pay cash for any of it… no more free suits like the one offered on release. Secondly, it’s almost all cosmetic, except for a few that make the existing weapons more powerful. How about a new weapon or two? Although I have to admit to being curioius as to how that Steam Punk gun looks….

If you haven’t played the game, I highly suggest picking it up, along with the awesome comics. Feel free to skip the animated film, though. Man, was it a mistake to be excited for that.
