Your first clue after hitting 'Play' on the above video is the dueling ESRB ratings. After that, the video seems to take on a tendency of flickering, flitting between two different realities. Isaac Clark's visor and luminescent bodysuit are still intact, but now he's surrounded by hillsides and wielding a sword...? He's blasting through necromorph limbs one minute and carving apart darkspawn the next. But do not adjust your set - this anachronistic delight is brought to you by EA's Cross-Dimensional Fashion Bureau, which is once again tempting you to buy two games that go great together. Yes, if you purchase the sequel to Dead Space, you'll receive a code to unlock a medieval version of Isaac's suit in the upcoming Dragon Age 2!
After playing as Raiden in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, seeing MonHun in MGS, and even unlocking Colonel Sanders in Phantasy Star, these character-inserting promotions are starting to get ridiculous. Luckily, EA at least has some precedent of their own for this cross-dressing trend - last year saw a Dragon Blood Armor available in Mass Effect 2 after a purchase of Dragon Age: Origins. It may just be a novelty, but for the Hawke who wants to collect every bit of swag available, another purchase just got added to the inventory list.
Dead Space 2 will be out next Tuesday, and Dragon Age 2 hits shelves March 11!
