Fans of the Dead Space franchise are able to grab themselves a free copy of Dead Space 2. Here's how.

A remake of EA's 2008 survival horror game of the same name, Dead Space is set to release on Jan. 27, 2023. The remake will retain the same plot as the original, but is being developed on EA's Frostbite engine, previously used to develop Star Wars: Squadrons and the single-player campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II. 

The game will feature new and redesigned assets, character models and environments, all to take advantage of modern console systems. But, protagonist Isaac Clarke's story doesn't stop with Dead Space, with the series spawning two sequels.

For those setting themselves up to continue Isaac's journey after finishing Dead Space, there's a way to get hold of Dead Space 2 for free.

Does Dead Space Remake PS5 or Xbox Preorder Come With Dead Space 2?

Sadly, the offer doesn't extend to Xbox and PlayStation players. Preorders of Dead Space on consoles will not come with a copy of Dead Space 2.

While Dead Space 2 is playable on the Xbox Series X|S thanks to backwards compatibility with the Xbox 360, the game isn't available on PlayStation. 

Xbox players still have more options available to them. Subscribers to EA Play will have access to all Dead Space games as part of the subscription, including co-op enabled Dead Space 3.

Dead Space isn't the only survival horror getting a remake this year, with Capcom set to release Resident Evil 4 remake in March. Wondering which one to buy? Check out our breakdown.
