If you haven’t looked into the Dead Space series yet, now might be the time to do so! EA dropped both the original Dead Space 1 and its sequel by 40% on the EA Store, putting the original Dead Space at $11.99 and Dead Space 2 at $23.99. That sets your total to $35.98 This is the download version only, but honestly if you do some searching you can probably find physical copies for a similar price.
Either way, this one is available right here and now for playing. So if you’re feeling a survival horror itch, it might be a good idea to pounce on this deal. The sale lasts all weekend.
