Ignition is a prologue to Dead Space 2, allowing you to experience the hours leading up to the beginning of Dead Space 2, with gameplay that is "fast-paced and accessible." Visceral Games have revealed that Ignition will reward players with unlocks, including an exclusive Hacker suit that can be used by Isaac in DS2 when it releases in January.
Dead Space Ignition combines an interactive comic-style story with three unique hacking games; Hardware Crack, Trace Route and System Override. Each game offers a fun arcade experience that will challenge players with puzzles and twitch gameplay. Dead Space Ignition features a unique “Choose Your Own Adventure” type narrative, allowing players to survive the initial Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl in multiple ways, with four different endings. The story was written by Antony Johnston, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of comics, graphic novels, video games and books including Wasteland, and Daredevil.
If you don't fancy pre-ordering Dead Space 2, then I wouldn't worry too much: Ignition will only set you back 400 MSP when it releases on Wednesday.
