EA has announced plans to launch a Dead Space 3 DLC pack titled Awakened next month.
The publisher said of the campaign add-on: "Players will experience the franchise's darkest chapters as the Necromorph battles become even more gruesome and terrifying than ever before."
It will be priced at $9.99 on PS3 and PC, and 800 Microsoft Points (£6.85) on Xbox 360.
The game launched in the US today ahead of the European Dead Space 3 release date this Friday, February 8.
In our Dead Space 3 review we described EA's threequel as a "technically impressive all-out action blaster", but added that it "betrays its roots and suffers for it".
Critical opinion of the game has been pretty divided, with scores ranging from 5/10 to 9.75. Check out all the major verdicts in our Dead Space 3 review round-up.
