A demo for the psychological/horror thriller Dead Space 2 is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on Dec. 21, giving gamers plenty of opportunities to temporarily break from the holiday spirit for a few moments of intense and scary gameplay. The PS3 and Xbox 360 Dead Space 2 demo will hit five weeks before the full game’s release.

The Dead Space 2 demo, available worldwide on December 21, will allow players to discover the Church of Unitology and help Isaac Clarke defeat the Necromorph outbreak in a gruesome, unforgiving battle on The Sprawl. Dead Space 2 will probably be the first big blockbuster title of 2011 when it ships in January, so the pre-order links above are recommended for sure.
In the Dead Space 2 demo, players will take engineer Isaac Clarke on a terrifying adventure through the Church of Unitology, an expectedly “safe” place that quickly becomes dangerous and deadly, during the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl. Players will also have access to a variety of new tools that Isaac can use to fight Necromorphs, including the new Javelin gun, updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability. Players will also experience the advanced suit, equipped with jets that will allow Isaac full 3600 control in Zero-G space.
The full game, meanwhile, will have players mysteriously awaking in a sprawling, massive city anchored to one of Saturn’s moons. Once again, hero Isaac Clarke will find himself thrust into the middle of a relentless Necromorph outbreak. Surrounded by the screeching cries of undead monsters and the haunting drum of echoing noises, Isaac plots a course through The Sprawl.
