Dead Space 2: Severed announced

PSN, XBL pack extends Dead Space 2 story.

EA has announced Dead Space 2: Severed, a "digital download pack" that extends the Dead Space 2 story with two standalone chapters in the single-player game.

It sees the return of Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, the two main characters from 2009 prequel Dead Space: Extraction. The Dead Space 2 Limited Edition for PS3 includes Dead Space: Extraction, which supports the Move controller.

Weller and Lexine's story runs parallel to Isaac's in Dead Space 2. Players assume the role of Gabe Weller, who as a Sprawl Security Guard fights against Necromorphs.

Dead Space 2: Severed is "coming soon", while pricing is yet to be announced. Dead Space 2 launches in Europe this Friday, and Eurogamer's review will publish at 5pm UK time.

Meanwhile, EA has this afternoon reminded gamers that Dead Space 2 includes a one-time-use Online Pass registration code that grants access to all of the online features in the game.

Players who do not have a code can purchase the Dead Space 2 Online Pass for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Marketplace and $9.99 on the PlayStation Network.
