Visceral Games has hinted that Dead Space 3 may be getting a “disturbing” post-release DLC expansion.
Without letting slip any concrete details, executive producer Steve Papoutsis said the content will be "coming in a few weeks.”
"The team is hard at work on a top secret additional story that will be coming in a few weeks," wrote Papoutsis on the Dead Space blog. "We're not saying much, yet - but think 'disturbing' to get your imaginations going.”
In addition to this, Papoutsis also revealed details on four gameplay modes, unlocked upon completion of the campaign. In Papoutsis’s own words, they are as follows:
Game+: “Lets you start a new game with all your upgrades and arsenal intact.”
Classic: “For the DS1 veterans out there. It’s single-player only, uses ‘classic’ aiming, and there’s no crafting – all weapons have to be built from blueprints, a la the original game.”
Pure Survival: “If you like survival horror and resource management, this is the mode for you. Enemies ONLY drop resources, and there’s no ammo, health, or weapon parts to be found. You’ll have to choose what to craft every time you see a bench. Upgrade? Med Pack? Plasma Core? Think fast – there’s a Waster right around the corner!”
Hardcore: “Choose this mode, and you only get one life to live for the entire campaign. Make sure to wear a clean pair of boxers when you play…”
Dead Space 3 is out on February 5th in North America and February 8th in Europe.
