Blood-thirsty necromorphs attack and you must save mankind
Electronic Arts today announced that Dead Space 2, the action sequel developed by Visceral Games for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, has shipped to retail across North America - the game will be available in Europe on January 28. Isaac Clarke returns for another adventure, taking the fight to the Necromorphs.
