Hero Isaac Clarke returns for another heart-pounding adventure, taking the fight to the Necromorphs in this thrilling action-horror experience. New tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs complement Isaac's signature Plasma Cutter, empowering him as he meets new characters, explores epic Zero-G environments, and fights against a relentless necromorph onslaught. Survival isn't the only thing on Isaac's mind in Dead Space 2 - this time, he calls the shots.

Have you ever played a videogame and thought “wouldn’t it be cool if…” Well, Visceral Games announced that fans of the Dead Space franchise can make their “what if” dreams a reality. This is their chance to design a kill and get it in the game. Players can submit ideas via text, video or still images. Since the contest began last week, there are over 1,000 entries already, so the cooler the kill, the better chance it has of winning a place in the upcoming Dead Space 2 videogame. To prove to the Visceral development team that they have the right stuff, players have to demonstrate Isaac Clarke defeating or dismembering various Necromorphs including the Slasher, Lurker, or Leaper using their own signature kill. The grand prize winner will not only have an opportunity to have their dismemberment move recreated in the game but they’ll also win the opportunity to have their likeness modeled onto a non-player character in the game.

Contest submissions are open and will end March 26, 2010 @ 11:59 pm PST.  The Dead Space 2 development team will select finalists based on creativity, execution, and how well it fits in the Dead Space universe. Once the finalists are announced, the Dead Space community will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced on or around April 20, 2010. This contest is open to all individuals over the age of 18 in Australia, Canada (excludes the Province of Quebec), France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, The United Kingdom and the United States.  Complete contest rules can be found right here.
