EA and Visceral Games have announced that Dead Space Extraction will be released on October 2, 2009 across Europe exclusively for the Wii.

"Our team is really excited to bring the intensity of the Dead Space universe to an entire new audience," said Executive Producer, Steve Papoutsis. "We are going to deliver the same high quality, cinematic experience we delivered in the original Dead Space, while also adding co-op, new enemies, weapons and taking advantage of all of the unique features the Wii has to offer."

Dead Space Extraction tells the story of a handful of space colonists desperately struggling to escape from a horrific infection on the Aegis VII mining colony deep in the furthest regions of space. Taking control of the crew members who fall victim to a mysterious contagion aboard the ship, it quickly becomes clear that protecting Lexine, a new heroine to the Dead Space universe, will be their only hope for survival.
