Electronic Arts and Visceral Games will be giving Dead Space 3 fans a chance to try the game early with a playable demo that will launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms next month. The official release date is January 22, 2012, just a few weeks short of the game's February 5 launch.
You've got options though. Those who would like to take an earlier crack at the demo -- on Xbox 360 only, unfortunately -- can do so by browsing over to demo.deadspace.com and following the directions there. It's easy; you just need to provide your birthday and sign in from there to your Origin account. You'll then be sent a download code that will allow you to access the demo a full week early.
