Dead Space 3 release date confirmed

February 8 release in UK, weapon crafting revealed. 

Dead Space 3 has had its release date firmed up, with the previous February window now narrowed down to February 8 in the UK and the rest of Northern Europe, with the US getting the game on February 5.

EA and Visceral took the opportunity of a Gamescom conference to reveal weapon crafting, which allows players to blend together existing guns. There's a competition dubbed Tools of Terror that's taking place on Dead Space's site. The eventual winner gets the weapon in the game, as well as their likeness.

Dead Space 3 follows on the story of Isaac Clarke, and somewhat controversially introduces co-op to the mix of action and horror. I had a peek at it myself last month.
