Experience the next phase in animated horror as the disturbing first chapters of the EA game Dead Space open up to reveal a cosmic terror that is truly out of this world. An ancient religious relic has been unearthed during a deep space mining mission to a remote planet. Some believe that the artifact provides irrefutable proof that God truly exists, but if there is a Heaven, there must also be a Hell. When the relic is taken aboard the ship, it unleashes a long-dormant alien race powerful enough to destroy all of mankind. One by one, the crew is being taken over by an alien force hell bent on devouring the entire human race. Can they be defeated before the ship returns to Earth, or has the ultimate Apocalypse finally been set into motion?
