Dead Space 3 Will Have 11 Day One DLC Packs
Upcoming horror title Dead Space 3 will launch alongside 11 pieces of day one DLC it has been revealed.
The DLC in question will be content like new suits and weapons for Isaac as as well as the ability to build your collection of loot far quicker. The majority of the DLC will focus around Dead Space 3′s weapon crafting mechanic. The day one DLC stands alone from the micro-transactions that will take the place of weapon crafting for players who don’t wish to take the time to build weapons.
The US PlayStation Store has listings of three pieces of the DLC that focus on upgrading the scavenger bots from Dead Space 3 that will act as scouts that accumulate weapons, ammo and supplies over the course of about 10 minutes or so. According to Dead Space 3 executive producer Steve Papoutis on the Dead Space 3 blog, ”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.”
The packs themselves are priced at $4.99 each with no details for Europe, Asia or Australia being announced just yet.
As previously mentioned, the other DLC packs include new weapons and suits for Isaac that also include the pre-order DLC from the Dead Space 3 special editions. Prices for these pieces of DLC will range from $0.99-$4.99 obviously relative to the content inside. Unsurprisingly, an online pass for those who don’t buy the game new will have to cough up $9.99 for it. The full list of DLC follows:
- Bot Capacity Upgrade – $4.99
- Bot Personality Pack – $4.99
- First Contact Pack – Free
