EA and Visceral Games have lifted the lid on the Dead Space 3 Dev-Team Edition, an even more limited edition than the Limited Edition, with only 5000 pieces to be made available.

You can get the Dev-Team Edition for $160 with the game included, or just get the bundled gubbins for $100. The former is for US gamers only, while the latter is also available to punters outside the US. Here's the stuff that comes with the limited Dev-Team Edition:

  • 8" Black Marker Statue - The Black Marker is an alien artifact found on Earth in 2214. This Marker is a custom molded and painted polyresin statue, and everyone's fingers are crossed that it doesn't end up driving people insane.
  • Aluminum Data Pad - Before there were holograms, there were layered plates of projected data on glass. This flipbooks recalls the nostalgia of the 200-year old technologies from the Sovereign Colonies era, showcasing an array of fascinating characters, ships, Necromorphs, and aliens from Dead Space 3. This Data Pad is a 10" by 7" hinged aluminum flip book that features 9 sets of pages made up of framed PET sheets and printed cardstock backing pages.
  • Med Pack Water Bottle - The Med Pack is a single-dose standard issue healing agent commonly used in the highly dangerous, isolated work environments of outer space. Custom molded 14-oz water bottle with a flip spout lid.
  • Bound SCAF Jotter - Doctor Earl Serrano, the head of Marker research on Tau Volantis, kept a careful journal of his findings under the watchful eye of the Sovereign Colonies military arm as he uncovered the shocking first-ever archeological contact with true aliens. The Bound SCAF Jotter with Dr. Serrano's notes has 20 pages of Dead Space lore and some blank pages for your own discoveries.
  • SCAF Posters - Nostalgic posters for an era long gone, the SCAF represents the government prior to EarthGov 200 years ago, when space travel was done without Shockpoint drives, and was only for the bold and the courageous-and the military. Set of three 12" by 5" vintage-feeling posters printed on 80-pound paper.
  • Peng Postcards - Peng as a phenomena stretches back over 200 years, as evidenced by these Sovereign Colonies-era postcards! No one knows who started Peng, or what its origins are. It had morphed into a pseudo-sexual morale booster for the troops even back then. The pack comes with 6 vintage post cards.
  • 96 Page Mini Art Book - A beautiful collection of the most haunting and visually-stunning concept art used in the production of Dead Space 3, produced exclusively for the Dev Team Edition. Book measures 4.75" by 6.5".
  • DLC - Receive DLC codes for the First Contact Bundle and the Witness the Truth bundle. The First Contact bundle includes the First Contact Suit and Negotiator weapon for precise dismemberment. The Witness the Truth Bundle includes the Witness the Truth suit and tactical Evangelizer weapon.

Dead Space 3 is out on February 5th in North America and February 8th in Europe. You can order the Dead Space 3 Dev-Team Edition here. Check out the trailer and image below to find out more.

I saw this a couple days ago. It's awesome, for sure, but the only thing I really want from it is the marker statue.

So I'll just get the regular limited edition with the dlc and leave it at that.

Only special edition I've ever bought full price (picked up a few dirt cheap) was Mass Effect 3, and tbh I don't think these are worth the price. About 10 seconds after it comes I forget I have the extra stuff, and I could have spent the extra money on something I'd get more enjoyment from.

@13 you could do what I did, I bought the version that didn't come with the game and they do international shipping, cost me roughly £80. Hope that helps :)

Very tempting.

I would totally use that water bottle.

I would totally put the marker on my shelf. The rest would collect dust but it's still an awesome collection.

Now if I remember my Peng history, wasn't Peng originally one of the Dead Space 1 dev team? What do you think she thinks about becoming a set of Parisian burlesque postcards? Very tasteful. Know a few woman that would love it, and some that would hate it LOL

I'll save the money, wait a year, and buy used versions of DS2 and DS3, along with all the DLCs and have enough money left over to buy some other things. :D Wanted to get DS2 a while ago but it just fell off the radar. I loved DS.

Its looks nice and so but not something i realy want. Basicly i just want the limited edition version with the extra DLC. If this had a cool statue or a figurine of the main caracter then it would be a SURE buy!

Would there be any additional fees due if importing this to the UK? Wondering roughly how much it would cost with all shipping and fees included

@24, Thanks, that isn't too bad. Noticed it mentions taking a refundable deposit on order. How much did they take from you? Was it the whole value?

@27 - You know you can play the entire game solo right? Co-op is optional, you still get the single player experience if you want it.

You get some extra bits to do with Carver's story if you play co-op, it's not going to be anything that important, especially as he won't be such a big character if you play it single player.

It's called compromise. Would you rather they force SP players to drag around a crappy AI controlled character? This is the only way they could please almost everyone. Of course there are still those that want to complain just for the sake of it.

Apparently its 99$ for shipping and taxes to the uk so on top of the 160$ another 99$ no way i want it bad but that is just milking it.... converting it comes to around 60£ for shipping.
