New information regarding the online multiplayer mode in Dead Space 2 is flying about the internet.

According to Gamernode, it emerged during a GameStop conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Apparently EA revealed you'll be able to control the Necromorphs in deathmatch-style battles against regular "soldiers" - and vice versa. More multiplayer characters will be announced in the future.

Anyone pre-ordering the game will get downloadable add-on Dead Space: Ignition into the bargain. Those pre-ordering from GameStop will also get a free rivet gun.

Dead Space 2 will arrive on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 28th January. Read our recent preview for the full lowdown.
