The first batch of downloadable content for Dead Space 3 is coming March 12th, 2013.

We already knew "Awakened" was going to arrive sometime this month, we just didn't know the exact date. Polygon is reporting the add-on will drop next Tuesday on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 for $9.99 (800MSP).

"Awakened" will take place immediately after the conclusion of Dead Space 3's story, and will include both single and co-operative missions, as well as new weapon parts and circuits. The content will focus on [spoiler warning] Isaac's and Carter's efforts to escape the planet of Tau Volantis to return to Earth. [spoilers over]

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Dead Space 3, and can't wait to see what Visceral has in store for this batch of story content. It's not set in stone whether there will be more DLC down the line, but this nice epilogue of content should suffice in the short term.

Check out the trippy trailer below, and let us know if you're excited to go back to Tau Volantis.
