'Dead Space 3's 11 day-one DLC packs revealed

By
Dead Space 3 will launch with 11 day-one DLC packs, it has been revealed.

The day-one DLC, which is designed to speed up the crafting process, makes it easier for players to harvest items for upgrades, reports Eurogamer.

Additional DLC includes new weapons, alternative suits for Isaac and John Carver, and an online pass.

Dead Space 3 producer Steve Papoutsis said that even without purchasing DLC, users will find "more than enough resources... to fully experience [the game]".

"Everybody will find at least one of these bots in the game (and there are a couple of hidden ones to pick up, too). The Scavenger Bot is an autonomous robot that can harvest resources for you and deliver them to the Tool Construction bench," Papoutsis explained.

"As a replacement for Dead Space 2's credits, resources are a key part of the Dead Space 3 experience, and their placement in the game has been well thought out by our game designers.

"Whether by looting enemies, opening lockers, or exploring the world, you'll find more than enough resources in-game to fully experience Dead Space 3 on any difficulty level.

"The Scavenger Bot's purpose is to give you an extra edge, since there's a bit of gameplay (and risk/reward) to using him and finding the richest resource caches. You can also choose to download upgrades to the Scavenger Bot that double his capacity or speed up his trips to the bench."

  • Bot Capacity Upgrade
