Check your inboxes people, Visceral and EA have launched the closed multiplayer beta for Dead Space 2 and have sent out the invites. Such a pleasant surprise to an otherwise dreary day. Multiplayer was formally announced for Dead Space 2, but only hints of a beta were ever evident. Now we have confirmation.
In addition, for those of you lucky enough to be in the beta, you'll get the chance to test the game out with the Dead Space 2 team on September 26. They'll be online from 8:00 to 10:00PM PST and will answer whatever questions you throw at them.
Dead Space 2 is out for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on January 25, 2011.
