Visceral Games have unveiled their limited edition version of Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition. The Dev Team Edition will get a limited run of 5,000 copies and the special bundle with the game can be purchased for $160 in North America or without the game for $100. Inside the Dev Team Edition bundle, you’ll find the following items.
8″ Black Marker Statue
The Black Marker is an alien artifact found on Earth in 2214. It radiates a signal that—depending on your intelligence—either induces dementia or imprints blueprints into your brain for reproducing more Markers. The signal also creates gruesome, violent, life-after-death reanimations of dead flesh known as Necromorphs. The Marker’s final purpose is revealed in the story of Dead Space 3.
This Marker is a custom molded and painted polyresin statue, and everyone’s fingers are crossed that it doesn’t end up driving people insane.
Aluminum Data Pad
Before there were holograms, there were layered plates of projected data on glass. This flipbooks recalls the nostalgia of the 200-year old technologies from the Sovereign Colonies era, showcasing an array of fascinating characters, ships, Necromorphs, and aliens from Dead Space 3.
Data Pad is a 10″ by 7″ hinged aluminum flip book that features 9 sets of pages made up of framed PET sheets and printed cardstock backing pages.
Med Pack Water Bottle
The Med Pack is a single-dose standard issue healing agent commonly used in the highly dangerous, isolated work environments of outer space. The vastly accelerated healing effects routinely save lives, but often result in misaligned bones and other soft tissues, requiring follow-up surgeries to correct.
Custom molded 14-oz water bottle with a flip spout lid. This photo is of our prototype and shows the molding well, but the colors ended up a bit different. The second picture shows the final bottle from the factory.
Bound SCAF Jotter
Doctor Earl Serrano, the head of Marker research on Tau Volantis, kept a careful journal of his findings under the watchful eye of the Sovereign Colonies military arm as he uncovered the shocking first-ever archeological contact with true aliens. The Bound SCAF Jotter with Dr. Serrano’s notes has 20 pages of Dead Space lore and some blank pages for your own discoveries.
Nostalgic posters for an era long gone, the SCAF represents the government prior to EarthGov 200 years ago, when space travel was done without Shockpoint drives, and was only for the bold and the courageous—and the military.
Set of three 12″ by 5″ vintage-feeling posters printed on 80-pound paper.
Peng as a phenomena stretches back over 200 years, as evidenced by these Sovereign Colonies-era postcards! No one knows who started Peng, or what its origins are. It had morphed into a pseudo-sexual morale booster for the troops even back then.
96 Page Mini Art Book
A beautiful collection of the most haunting and visually-stunning concept art used in the production of Dead Space 3, produced exclusively for the Dev Team Edition.
Book measures 4.75″ by 6.5″.
EA has confirmed a Dead Space 3 release date of February 5, 2013 in North America and February 8, 2013 in Europe.
