In a next-gen first, Anchor Bay will offer a downloadable MP3 isolated score and other exclusives via BD-Live on the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Dead Space.'

As first reported last month, the indie will bring the animated spin-off movie 'Dead Space: Downfall' to Blu-ray October 28 (day-and-date with the standard DVD), a week after the PlayStation 3 game it supports hits stores from Electronic Arts.

Anchor Bay has now confirmed final specs for the release, which will see exclusive BD-Live content including a first-ever isolated score available as an MP3 download, as well as additional downloadable animatics.

Previously-announced standard extras include two exclusive cheat codes for the EA game, plus deleted scenes and trailers. A Digital Copy of the film (in standard -def) will also be provided on an extra disc for viewing on PCs and portable video devices (including Mac-compatible formats).

Tech specs boast a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

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