Dead Space: Ignition
Dead Space: Ignition Dated; Free to Dead Space Pre-Order Folk [Updated]

Visceral Games today announced that their downloadable Dead Space 2 prequel, Dead Space: Ignition, would be hitting the PSN on October 12th for $5.

If that's not good enough news for you, Visceral also announced that Dead Space: Ignition will come as a free download on October 13th for those that pre-order Dead Space 2 from participating retailers in North America.

Not only can you catch up on the events leading up to Dead Space 2 in Ignition, but you can also unlock an exclusive Hacker suit which can be used when Dead Space 2 ships in January.

For those of you who are blissfully unaware of what Ignition is, expect an interactive comic-style story, penned by NYT bestselling author, Antony Johnston, with three unique hacking mini-games to eat up your time: Hardware Crack, Trace Route and System Override.

With four different endings and allowing players to choose how they survive the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl, Dead Space: Ignition will offer rich Dead Space lore as well as plenty of puzzles and "twitch" gameplay this coming October.

[Update:] Thanks to another press release on the same topic from EA UK, it appears that deal is coming to the UK as well, with GAME and Gamestation on board to offer Dead Space: Ignition as a pre-order incentive.

When will publishers learn that releasing press releases for different regions is always going to cause confusion?

@1 I'm hoping the UK will get the same deal. Game are usually pretty good at securing pre-order bonus goodies.

Might be a couple of weeks later.

No love for EU? Oh well what's $5? £3? Not exactly breaking the bank.

I thought that each ending gave you a bonus item for starting Dead Space 2 with.

I preordered this today. How does I get my codez? I assume Gamestop, I'll check that out tomorrow.

Also, @11, it comes with the preorder or the game itself? Is it on disc or do we get a code to download when we pick it up or what?

Extraction will probably be like Medal of Honor Frontline. Since that comes with the new MoH, not sure if its on the disk or download......

Any news on these codes?

I ordered mine from Game UK and have had nothing so far - EA's Uk website does not give any info either.
