New Dead Space iOSgame & iPad comic app

Well I’m a big Dead Space fan and can wait for Dead Space 2 which is coming out next week. I’ve just come across this news of a Dead Space digital comic and game for iPhone, iPad and iTouch which I hadn’t heard about till today. EA Mobile has confirmed  that this iOS version of the game on 25 January the same day as Dead Space 2 is released.

The new game has it’s own story that bridges the events between the first and second console games. It is a 3rd person shooter that uses touch-anywhere controls for movement and a variety of gestures for more specialized actions. The game will also feature a weapon upgrade system similar to the console games. The image above is from the iOS game so you can see that it looks good graphically.

With Dead Space 2, Dead Space Extraction and this new iOS game, Dead Space fans will have 3 games to play on the 25th January.

Additional to the new game there is also a new digital Dead Space comic. The app is called Dead Space: Salvage, and it costs £4.99 on the App store. It picks up from the end of the original game, as the USG Ishimura, the most famous of the Planetcracker class starships, is flung from orbit around Aegis VII after the disastrous events of Dead Space. It is lost somewhere in deep space, and both the Government and a powerful religious sect called ‘Unitology’ believe it may still hold the Red Marker, an alien artifact that promises great power for either side, and both will stop at nothing to reach it first!”

The comic itself is the work of author Antony Johnston and sci-fi artist Christopher Shy. You can pinch and zoom to get a closer look at the artwork, while swiping to turn the virtual pages.
