Dead Space Save File Unlocks Original Plasma Cutter in Dead Space 2 January 2, 2011

That title is pretty much self explanatory.  EA has announced today that if you have any original Dead Space file on your console of choice, that save file, when carried over to Dead Space 2, will unlock you an exclusive weapon, the original Plasma Cutter.

This is another example of a nice trend that seems to be forming in games over the past three or so years.  Original save files from Gears of War would unlock special mutliplayer characters in Gears of War 2, but what was unlocked was dependant on your progress in the original game.  Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would unlock free in-game currency depending on your unlocked trophies in the save file of the original Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  You could unlock the most money by having the Platinum Trophy.  And of course, a save brought over storyline important information from Mass Effect 1 to Mass Effect 2.

This is not the only thing that will net you free goodies in Dead Space 2.  Also be aware for players who complete Dead Space Ignition, the downloadable game released for free to those who preorder Dead Space 2, you will unlock a special outfit.
