Poor Isaac Clark must have suffered enough by now – having to endure three whole games in which he goes through hell and back, facing off against terrifying aliens all out to dismember his fleshy body. But now, if you can handle the horrors, the third instalment in the Dead Space franchise, Dead Space 3, is available in its entirety for Xbox Live Gold members to play and keep forever, free of charge, thanks to August 2018’s Games With Gold scheme.
Crash-landing on the ice planet Tau Volantis, Isaac is finally attempting to discover the origin of, and end, the Necromorph outbreak. To do so he will have to scavenge the desolate planet for any materials he can find, crafting and customizing weapons and tools to aid in his ongoing fight for survival. The freakish Necromorphs found on Tau Volantis most definitely have the physical power over Isaac, so it’s good to get a gun between them and him. This is where a coop friend will come in handy, if only to act as another barrier to your highly penetrable skull!
It’s not only the monsters that pose a fatal threat to Isaac, but harsh environmental features such as avalanches and vertical ice climbs will also lead to a quick death if you are not careful – there seems to be no let up in the danger even when the coast is clear of enemies.
Dead Space 3 is now free to download for all Xbox 360 and Xbox One Gold members – but get that install in fast as it is only around for a couple of weeks – from August 1st to August 15th. Fail to hit that download button between those dates and you’ll be left to pay for the Dead Space 3 privilege.
Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customize weapons and survival tools. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s.
