REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- December 03, 2012

Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio, today announced
that fans who pre-order Dead Space™ 3 from GameStop* will receive the EG-900
SMG and from Amazon* the Tesla Enervator. These exclusive weapons will help
players on their mission to destroy the horrifying and mysterious Markers and
stop the bloody Necromorph infestation once and for all. Throughout Dead Space
3, unwilling heroes Isaac and Carver put their engineering and military skills
to the test as they scavenge for parts and assemble their ultimate tools for
survival. While exploring different locations, players can hunt for parts,
break down tools, build devastating new weapons and share them with a friend
to defeat whatever terrors stand in their way.

The bonus pre-order items** include:

  *EG-900 SMG  available at GameStop

       *This EarthGov-issued sub machinegun is built for urban warfare. It’s
         compact but deadly, sporting an internal hyper-accelerator for
         maximum damage.

  *Tesla Enervator  available at Amazon

       *Sovereign Colonies scientists developed the “Enervator” from an
         overdriven focus coil to “humanely” eliminate dangerous specimens.
         The Enervator delivers a precision blast causing instantaneous
         electrocution and molecular destabilization in the target. In test
         subjects, death was instantaneous.

Winner of more than 15 critic awards at E3 2012 including Best of Show
fromGame Informer Magazine, Dead Space 3cuts to the heart of deep space
terror. The game is recognized by game critics worldwide for its incredible
craftsmanship in horror, action, suspense and sound design. Players will
embark on a thrilling ride through space that takes them to a hostile new
planet, Tau Volantis. Fortunately, they are not alone this time around. The
fully integrated drop-in/drop-out co-op feature gives players the option to
play alone or team-up with a friend anytime. Players that choose to take down
the terror together will experience additional story details, side missions
and gameplay mechanics only found when playing as John Carver.

Dead Space 3 will be available on February 5, 2013 in North America and
February 8, 2013 in Europe for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment
system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and the PC.
