Then read on for details of our download code giveaway along with a look at the new Ignition trailer and specs for the Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition.
Dead Space Ignition is the prologue to the January blockbuster Dead Space 2. It is an Arcade game told through an interactive animated comic that reveals the events leading up to Dead Space 2 and rewards players with unlocks including an exclusive Hacker suit which can be used by engineer Isaac Clarke in Dead Space 2. It is available now on Xbox Live® Arcade and Playstation®Network.
Set during the initial Necromorph outbreak on The Sprawl space station, players will be challenged with puzzles and twitch gameplay in order to progress through the storyline filled with interactive storytelling moments and a graphic novel aesthetic. You will infiltrate and override various systems on The Sprawl in three unique hacking minigames - Trace Route, System Override, and Hardware Crack.
1) Hardware Crack is a puzzler where you must align lasers to complete circuits on a grid, using items such as reflectors and projectors in order to crack through broken control panels.
2) System Override turns tower-defense games on their head, and places you on the offensive. Send your viruses into the system to override the core, timing your attacks to defeat the antivirus and take control of the system.
3) Trace Route is a sidescrolling race where you run your electrical signal through the system, avoiding security hazards and racing against countermeasures to access the core.
Winning is just a click away. All you have to do is send us an E-MAIL HERE including your FULL NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, and SYSTEM PREFERENCE (Xbox or PS3).

Dead Space 2 pushes the limits of action, horror, and terror. After waking up in a sprawling, dark, and mysterious location, Dead Space 2 hero Isaac Clarke again finds himself thrust into the middle of a massive Necromorph invasion. Surrounded by the screeching cries of undead monsters and the haunting drum of echoing noises, Isaac plots a course through abandoned building after creepy abandoned building. New tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs complement Isaac's signature Plasma Cutter, empowering him as he meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a relentless Necromorph onslaught. Survival isn't the only thing on Isaac's mind in Dead Space 2 – this time, he calls the shots.
