Dead Space 2’s Haunting New Chapter Arrives In March

Dead Space 2’s Haunting New Chapter Arrives In March

Gabriel and Lexine from Dead Space: Extraction make their Dead Space 2 debut on March 1 as the central cast for the chilling new single-player digital download pack Severed. Here’s a scream that will haunt you all day long.

I played Dead Space 2 for about an hour before I set it aside, not out of dislike, but out of fear. It’s what I get for playing it in a darkened room with no one else in the house at the time. I’ll get back to it though, hopefully in time for the March 1 release of Dead Space: Severed.

Gabe Weller from Dead Space: Extraction stars in this two chapter side-story, along with Lexine Murdoch and a special guest from the original Dead Space, the Twitcher.

I might not be able to make it through the downloadable content either. *shivers*

Dead Space 2: Severed will be available for 560 Microsoft points or $US6.99 on Xbox Live worldwide and the North American PlayStation Network, with European PlayStation 3 players getting it on March 2.


  • This looks really promising, this sort of self contained content, separate from the main game is just the sort of thing I’d love to see more of in DLC.

    It’s just a shame it’s not coming to PC, else I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

  • “I set it aside, not out of dislike, but out of fear”

    Mike, man up and play the game! it’s about as scary as a kiss from Aunt Ethel, believe me

    • Uh huh. Seriously, I loved the game, but I think I jumped once, and that was cause I had it up too loud. Every scare is sign-posted and the gore is so over the top, it becomes funny.

      I don’t get everyone that’s wetting their pants over DS2. Well said Lillee.

      • Funny story: I played the game with headphones on loud and lights out. By far the scariest moment on the entire game was when my wife walked into the room without me knowing and tapped me on the back… I screamed like a girl guide!

  • No PC DLC again? Lived the first and can’t get the second right now.. With no DLC, well I may not get 2 after all..
