EA are bullish over Dead Space’s demand ahead of the official launch which is now just days away.

“The message boards are on fire and social channels are buzzing,” reads the press release.

The Dead Space 3 demo was played by close to two million players this past weekend across Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, which is a double digit increase over Dead Space 2.

EA also claim that more than 100,000 mentions were recorded of the game across social media, and earned close to 90,000 new “likes” on Facebook, bringing the total Dead Space community on Facebook to 1.4 million.

Pre-sales figures are ahead of expectations and game critics have also spoken, placing the title on more than 30 “Best of 2013” lists.
