Dead Space 2

What is Dead Space 2?

Dead Space 2 is a survival horror third-person shooter video game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts. Set three years after the events of the first Dead Space, the game follows protagonist Isaac Clarke's fight against a new Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl, a space station above Saturn's largest moon, Titan. The player controls Isaac Clarke from a third-person perspective, looking over the character's right shoulder. As in the previous game, the game uses the Resource Integration Gear (RIG) suit, an in-world HUD system that uses holograms projected from Issac's suit and weapons to show information such as messages and ammunition count. Multiplayer mode pits two four-player teams of Humans and Necromorphs against each other as the Humans strive to complete various mission-like objectives before time runs out, such as activating escape pods and destroying machines, whilst the Necromorphs simply prevent the Humans from completing said objectives.


The most common release is 1.0.941.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.
