Electronic Arts has confirmed that players can unlock Commander Shepard’s N7 armor in Dead Space 3 – provided you have a Mass Effect 3 save file on your console.
The swanky suit will be available to all Dead Space 3 players once a ME3 file is detected by the game. Note that you won’t be able to unlock the armor across different platforms; both games have to be on the same console.
As it stands EA hasn’t been clear on what perks, if any, the N7 suit gives players. The armor itself is a modified version of Shepard’s personal clobber from ME3, complete with N7 logo.
Dead Space 3 is due out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February 2013.
