Dead Space for iPad is now available in the iPad App Store.
Another day, another big name game from Electronic Arts hits the iPad App Store. This time it’s the first iOS version of Dead Space, one of EA’s big PC and console titles.
Here’s all the details on Dead Space for iPad, straight from its App Store page:
AN ALL-NEW DEAD SPACE STORY – AVAILABLE ONLY ON THE APP STORE. Immerse yourself in events that set the stage for the action-horror storyline of Dead Space 2. Featuring a hardcore game experience and a rich audio environment specifically designed for your iPad, this is an original vision of the acclaimed franchise and a true landmark game on the App Store.
THE FIRST DEAD SPACE STORYLINE EVER DEVISED FOR iOS
Three years have passed since the destruction of the Marker in the first Dead Space story. Now, experience first-hand the events that unleash the Necromorph hordes once again. You’ll find yourself on a mission of uncertain purpose in the Mines of Titan. Soon, however, the truth of your situation will become grotesquely clear…
A CHARGED SENSORY EXPERIENCE WITH VIVID SOUND AND VISCERAL GRAPHICS
Featuring a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus a movie-quality score and sound effects, we recommend experiencing the game with headphones for full immersion. Hear every footstep in the empty passages and feel the tension build as you are pulled deeper into danger. With cutting-edge visuals, rich in effects and atmospheric lighting, Dead Space reproduces the cinematic horror of the console experience and sets a new benchmark for graphical fidelity on the iOS platform.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED CONTROLS KEEP YOU FOCUSED ON THE ACTION
Intuitive controls have been conceived to maximize the immersive experience of the game on iPad. The on-screen HUD is seamlessly integrated into the game environment. Navigate 6 varied environments and battle Necromorphs with simple swipe and tap controls that offer accessibility without sacrificing depth. Nothing will break the spell of the story’s adrenaline-driven suspense.
INTRODUCING 2 EXCLUSIVE WEAPONS & FEATURING CLASSIC MODULES
Access the ALL-NEW Plasma Saw and Core Extractor, plus 3 more weapons from the Dead Space universe – and get on with the business of strategic dismemberment. In addition, utilize true physics-based Kinesis and Stasis Modules well-known to players of the original Dead Space console game.
BUY AND DOWNLOAD UPGRADES IN THE IN-GAME STORE
Built into the context of the Dead Space environment, the in-game Store enables you to instantly purchase and download upgrades to help you survive the Necromorph onslaught. Get additional Power Nodes to enhance weapons at the Bench or to unlock sealed doors. Increase your offensive and defensive capabilities with Weapon Output and Armor Integrity Modules. Or get the Credit Booster to scavenge more credits from dismembered Necromorphs.
ALSO LOOK FOR A SPECIAL UNLOCK IN DEAD SPACE 2 FOR CONSOLE
Don’t forget to register your Dead Space game for iPad. A special unlock awaits you in Dead Space 2 for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, or PC!
I’m not much of a PC or console gamer at all, so I’ve never actually seen this title in action – but it certainly looks like another landmark game for iOS, and EA has definitely been hyping it quite a bit leading up to its release.
