The lights are on
Game Informer’s January cover story explores the cold and terrifying corners of space with EA and Visceral Games’ Dead Space 2. After the success of the original Dead Space, gamers have been waiting patiently for a sequel to continue the series’ unique blend of horror and dismemberment-focused gunplay. Electronic Arts finally made the official announcement of Dead Space 2, and we go in-depth with 10 pages of exclusive details on what awaits Isaac Clarke in his new battle against the vicious necromorphs. While you’re waiting for your issue, be sure to check out our Dead Space 2 hub for features that will refresh your memory on the lore of the Dead Space universe and provide insight into the development team’s horror inspirations. As the month goes on, we’ll add new features that delve deeper into the characters and gameplay, giving you a complete picture of how the team at Visceral Games is evolving the concept of interactive horror.
Here's the front cover:

The first one was awesome and this looks even better.
but whats up with the necromorph, why does it have complete arms? O_o its all so amazing.
Wow. This look like a must buy title already!
That cover is really, really, ridiculously good-looking.
I like the new look, too, except those raised plates on top o' the helmet.
Awesome, I can't wait!
The dev. team for the Resident Evil series should really take note on how horror and suspense can still be implemented with a "run 'n gun" shooting mechanic. Dead Space did it very well and Resident Evil 5 could've had the same affect if they would've allowed us to move and shoot. All they had to do is increase the speed of the enemy AI. Let us run, but allow THEM to run faster!!!
This is officially one of my favorite covers ever from you guys. The full spread only makes it that much sexier. This may be my most anticipated game of next year. Can't wait!
I've never played Deadspace, but that cover looks so awesome I might just play it.
Damn now I NEED to play the 1st one!
Still need to play the first one, but awesome nonetheless.
Lost Plant 2 instead?!?!
unfortunately, I do not remember how great Dead Space 1 was. Hopefully, you guys did a look at both.
That cover is amazing! Can't wait for DS2!
Awesome. I much much prefer this cover to last month's covers (except the Half-Life 2 one, that was the best).
And this time, I'll actually read every word of the cover story. A Top 200 list is a bit too much for me, especially when I don't entirely agree with it.
dead space sucks ! no more sci-fi , no more sequals to sci-fi !
Wow that's an awesome looking cover. I hoped you guys would make one, but was doubting it because there's already been a "Dead Space" cover. I guess both Assassin's Creed games have made the cover too though. Either way it looks great and I can't wait for the details.
I totally called that. I so knew you were gonna have this as your cover!!!
I am so pumped for this. I LOVED the first dead space! and i have been craving for a sequel since i finished the first one. I can not wait till i get this issue! omg. YES!!! this is a win!
