Electronic Arts really seems to get a kick out of offering pre-order weapons and armor that are related to other games in their publishing stable. They have treated Mass Effect, Kingdoms of Amalur, Dragon Age, and Dead Space like married couples at a key party but swapping logos and color palettes rather than spouses.
That trend continues with Dead Space 3
. If your brand new and previously unopened (that's very important) copy of Dead Space 3
detects a Mass Effect 3
save file on your hard drive, then you'll get Mass Effect 3
-themed armor for Isaac and Carver. So if, in your mind, Mass Effect 3
and Dead Space 3
somehow take place in the same universe, then consider this bonus some sort of digital cosplay or something.
Dead Space 3
comes out on February 5th.
