Dead Space: Ignition is an interactive graphic novel available for free to people who pre-ordered Dead Space 2. It can also be bought without having pre-ordered Dead Space 2. The game features three different mini-games which can be played in between plot sequences. The three mini-games are Trace Route, System Override and Hardware Crack.

In Trace Route the player controls a dot on the screen and must race through an obstacle course and finish before the enemy dots do. Certain shields can be used to block paths for the other dots, or use boosts to temporarily speed up. In System Override the player has to destroy enemy defenses, and penetrate the core of the system before time runs out. Hardware Crack is a player has to rotate mirrors to direct a light beam to the designated location.

This game tells the main story line between Dead Space and its sequel. The player controls engineer Franco Delile. Franco and his wife Sarah are called to fix a lift on the space station Sprawl. After repairing the elevator they are called to repair a computer mainframe, both which appear to be intentionally sabotaged. While travelling between jobs, they hear and see people get attacked by Necromorphs. The couple decides the flee and fights though the space station hacking systems and helping other people. Based on player choices, Sarah dies in one of several ways. Franco eventually finds Isaac Clarke, main character of both Dead Space and Dead Space 2. Clark lies in a coma and is revived by Franco.

By completing the game bonus items for Dead Space 2 can be unlocked as that game detects a completed Ignition save file. These items include a hacker-themed suit with 15% armor and 15 inventory slots, and a bonus for the hacking sections. Other items are a hacker-themed Contact Beam weapon, additional health packs, ammo, audio logs and power nodes, found in conduit rooms.
