Dead Space holds a special place in the heart of horror game fans. At a time when Resident Evil went bonkers with the action that saw Chris Redfield take on a literal boulder, Dead Space went all-in on the survival horror experience but took gamers to a new environment - space. The result was a space-horror trilogy that saw the protagonist, Isaac Clarke, take his now-iconic plasma cutter and tear Necromorphs a new one.
Unfortunately, Dead Space wasn't quite in line with EA's plans at the time. As it was mostly a single-player experience, EA stopped at a third game, which came out in 2013.
Fast forward to a decade later and a reboot is finally happening. However, unlike with The Last of Us Part 1, the new Dead Space isn't just a visual upgrade.
Although EA promises that it's a faithful reimagining of the original game, it will make several tweaks. For example, it will borrow a page out of Santa Monica Studio's God of War and turn the entire ordeal into one seamless experience. The game will not have any loading screens or camera cuts unless you die, which should up the immersion factor. EA Motive will also use elements and ideas from the two Dead Space sequels as well as the expanded media to fine-tune the story and tell a better tale.
Technically, narratively, and graphically, the new Dead Space should be a better game. The only question now is, will it deliver?
We'll find out more about Dead Space when it comes out on January 27. Until then, you can look forward to watching the gameplay reveal tomorrow, October 4.
