We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that have the Dead Space 2 game but maybe haven’t played the multiplayer side for a while, as we’ve just discovered that a new free multiplayer DLC map pack has recently been announced by the publisher Electronic Arts.

As John Houlihan over on the computerandvideogames.com website recently noted, the downloadable content comes in the form of the ‘Outbreak’ map pack. The upcoming map pack will contain a total of two brand new multiplayer maps: The Academy and Concourse.

Xbox 360 owners will be able to download the new map pack as from May 31st, while PlayStation 3 owners have to wait until June 3rd to start playing the new maps. There has unfortunately been no word on the DLC heading to the PC, so we don’t know whether PC gamers will receive it or not.

The great thing about the upcoming ‘Outbreak’ DLC is the fact that it won’t cost you anything to download, which as John states is a refreshing change in the age where you have to pay for DLC. Do you own a copy of the Dead Space 2 game? If so, will you be downloading the new downloadable content?
