Dead Space 3 pre-orders at Amazon, GameStop include special guns

Players who pre-order Dead Space 3 at Amazon or GameStop will receive a boost to their Necromorph-killing skills with exclusive weapons, publisher Electronic Arts announced today.

The deadly equipment is a bonus atop the game's existing Limited Edition, which comes with two suits of armor and two weapons and applies to all pre-orders.

GameStop pre-orders include the EG-900 SMG, a submachine gun that features an internal hyper-accelerator. Amazon pre-order customers will get a more exotic weapon: the Tesla Enervator, which electrocutes its targets and destabilizes them at a molecular level. If those don't sound particularly exciting, don't worry: Dead Space 3 players will be free to modify existing weapons and craft their own.

Dead Space 3 is set for release on Feb. 5 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. According to story producer Chuck Beaver, the game will finally explain "huge chunks of lore."
