Dead Space 2 beta footage surfaces

Earlier today, we brought you news of a closed multiplayer beta for Dead Space 2 currently going on for PlayStation 3. Only a few hours later, fourteen-minute footage of the beta has surfaced by way of YouTube user DeltaCanuckianGaming.

In the clip, you’ll see the player take the shape of both a human and a necromorph. You’ll immediately notice one of the flaws of being a necromorph is that the player has no way to determine their health. Obviously, the two play very differently.

Check out the clip below. Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.
