Announced nearly a month ago
, Visceral Games have finally announced a release date and price for the upcoming "Severed" DLC pack for http://www.trueachievements.com/Dead-Space-2-xbox-360.htm
, arriving on the Marketplace on March 1st and costing players 560 MSP.
The DLC extends DS2's story, adding two new, standalone single-player chapters. You play as Gabe Weller, a character from Wii/PS3 rail shooter Dead Space: Extraction
, a security officer on the USG Ishimura in the two chapters than run parallel to Isaac Clarke's story. Armed with a one-of-a-kind security suit and an upgraded, highly powerful Pulse Rifle, Weller's haunting story across the Sprawl will apparently be full of surprises, with bloodthirsty monsters lurking behind every corner including the return of the original game's terrifying and grotesque Twitcher, as he tries to rescue fellow endangered survivor Lexine.
There's still not been any confirmation on whether this pack will add new achievements to the game.
