Dead Space Ignition should be available to download on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow but if you'd rather wait, you can grab it for free.
EA has announced the pre-order bonus for Dead Space 2 today, and it just so happens to be the aforementioned Ignition . In other words, if you pre-order the hotly anticipated follow-up to one of this generation's best, you'll land the downloadable prequel for free. The pre-order bonus is in place at "participating retailers" – we'll just assume GameStop is one of them – and it might be worth your while to pre-order and wait until January to check out Ignition . The latter is related in a classic comic style and there will be three hacking games: Hardware Crack, Trace Route and System Override. We may not be mowing down rampaging Necromorphs but hey, we'll get plenty of that in the full game, right? We'll even get four different endings in Ignition and the opportunity to unlock exclusive content for Dead Space 2 , such as the Hacker suit for Isaac.
Of course, if you'd rather not pre-order and just grab the prequel this week, it'll have a price tag of $4.99 on the PSN or 400 Microsoft Points on the XBLA.
