In a rare Blu-ray-videogame tie-in, Anchor Bay has announced an October Blu-ray bow for the animated direct-to-video game prequel 'Dead Space: Downfall'.

A full-length animated movie, 'Dead Space: Downfall' will debut on Blu-ray October 28 (day-and-date with the standard DVD), a week after the PlayStation 3 game it supports, 'Dead Space,' hits stores from Electronic Arts.

Tech specs for the Blu-ray include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround soundtrack.

Extras shared between both versions are limited, with only a single "Grave Robber" deleted scene.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be a pair of cheat codes for the EA game, and a Digital Copy (standard def) on a second disc.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
