Dead Space 3 (Limited Edition) - Xbox 360
Dead Space 3 is the third main game in the futuristic third-person shooter series and a direct sequel to Dead Space 2. It starts with a prologue 200 years before the events of the main game where the player controls a soldier part of the Sovereign Colonies Armed Forces at a base at the planet Tau Volantis. There the Markers are investigated, mysterious alien artifacts that play a central role in the Dead Space universe. After the prologue the events shift to 18th June 2314 with the protagonist Isaac Clarke, returning from the previous games. The prologue serves to introduce the Tau Volantis base where the game takes place. Clarke travels there when two months after escaping the space station Sprawl. He and Ellie Langford (from the previous game and his ex-girlfriend in the meantime) meet sergeant John Carver in a lunar colony. Carver survived the Necromorph outbreak on the planet Uxor and tells about the discovery of the frozen planet Tau Volantis. Clarke wants to investigate the long lost colony and find out if it is the origin of the Markers, to prevent future Necromorph outbreaks once and for all. Upon entering the planet however the ship breaks down and Ellie is separated. That way Clarke has to save her and also discover the base's secrets to stop the Markers. After a series of sequences on a flotilla of drifting ships he reaches the planet itself where most of the game is set. Other characters in the game include Ellie's current boyfriend Robert Norton, the female scientist Santos, and antagonist Jacob Danik who is a member of the Children of Altman cult that believes the Markers will save humanity. That way Clarke's opponents do not only include Necromorphs, but also Danik's allies called Unitologists. Compared to the previous games, the horror elements have been toned down significantly in favour of action gameplay.
