Everyone likes something free right? However, whether you like this free thing is debatable. The game Dead Space was released in 2008 and had an "Alienesque" feel about it. The game had you playing the role of Isaac Clarke, an engineer who is sent to investigate what happened to the USG Ishimura space ship after a distress signal is received.
As it has an "Alien" feel to it, its not for people who are scared easily so not for young or old who wouldn't be able to cope with the on screen horrors. It is similar to "original" horror game, Doom. Whereas Doom was set on Mars with a portal to hell, this is set on board a space ship.
The game spawned two sequels, out in 2011 and 2013. In the original, Isaac wore his helmet after the initial video and never said anything. In the sequels, he is spoken by actor, Gunner Wright. In the third game, the adventure takes place on Tau Volantis, an ice world. Whilst the name sounds like a legitimate star / planet name, there is no star in the constellation of Volans with the designation of Tau Volantis.
The team behind the Dead Space trilogy has been disbanded so therefore any chance of a new updated sequel has faded. There is rumours of a Movie but given previous game to movie versions including the disrespectful Doom movie, any hope of a film worthy of the title is slim. Doom disrespected the games because the aliens were humans who were turned into Imps and monsters rather than a wormhole portal to hell.
To access the free game, visit Origin, log in or sign up, you shouldn't/won't need to provide any credit card etc. details to download the game. I say that because I've signed up and only give my details when necessary. For the record, I don't work for E.A. and am not getting any thing from E.A. for letting people about it. Normal price for UK is about £7 but whilst its free, might as well take advantage.
It also possible to buy Battlefront 2 for the P.C. at a significantly reduced price whilst the promotion is going on, £27 instead of £60+. One last thing, both are large downloads so they will take a long time. Battlefront 2 is 65 Gigabytes and thats probably without patches.
