Dead Space heading to iPad

Full adventure, new story, not on rails.

A new Dead Space game for the iPad will launch in December, EA has revealed.

The publisher announced the game at a press event in Tokyo's Apple Store, according to TouchArcade.

The game will bridge the story gap between the first two Dead Space titles and feature motion-based dismemberment, letting you lop of necromorph limbs with the swipe of a finger.

A slideshow presentation at the event promised, "Third person shooter - no rails, no mode switching."

The slide made no mention of an iPhone version.

Hopefully the game will fare better than EA's other recent spin-off, Dead Space Ignition. Eurogamer's Chris Schilling deemed the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade download only worthy of 3/10.

EA also showed off a number of other games in the works for Apple's device at the event, including Reckless Racing, Monopoly, NBA Elite 11, EA Sports Active and Pictureka!

EA's mobile division has been very busy of late. It recently unveiled its first slate of titles for Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 OS, including versions of Need For Speed: Underground, Tetris and The Sims 3.

Dead Space 2 launches on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 25th January 2010.,
