Electronic Arts and Anchor Bay Entertainment today announced that a new Dead Space animated film, titled Dead Space Aftermath will be released on January 25th to coincide with the release of the highly anticipated Dead Space 2. Coming from the award-winning game development team, Dead Space Aftermath will feature several internationally renowned animation directors that use their unique and bold visions to explain what happened during the first-responder mission to Aegis VII, as told from the perspective of four survivors.

In Dead Space Aftermath, the year is 2509 and not only has Earth lost contact with the USG Ishimura and Isaac Clarke, but also the USG O’Bannon, which is the first responder ship sent to rescue them. Four crew members of the O’Bannon have survived, but no one knows what happened to the rest of the crew, what they were doing, or what secrets they may be holding. All will be revealed…in the Aftermath!

Returning from the first Dead Space animated film is producer Joe Goyette and supervising director Mike Disa. Dead Space Aftermath features a stellar voice cast led by Christopher Judge (Stargate: SG-1), Peter Woodward (Babylon 5, Charmed), Graham McTavish (upcoming The Hobbit), Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives) and Gwendoline Yeo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars).

In Dead Space 2, engineer Isaac Clarke makes his return in a blood-curdling new adventure on an all-new space installation known as “The Sprawl.” The lone survivor of a horrific alien infestation, Isaac finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare. Battling dementia, Isaac will do whatever it takes to save himself and dominate the relentless enemy onslaughts. Equipped with a new arsenal of tools to dismember the necromorphs, Isaac faces the challenge head-on. Players will see Isaac fight bigger, scarier and more epic battles.

Dead Space 2 will be available on January 25th, 2011 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC.
