Putting an end to the rumors, Dead Space remake has been revealed as their “one more thing” teaser trailer during EA Play Live. The remake will only be available for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC, so last-gen console fans wanting to play this classic will have to find some way to upgrade before it launches.
The Dead Space Remake will be rebuilt from the ground up using the Frostbite Engine, and because of the power of the new hardware, EA Motive is looking to make it a seamless experience from start to finish without any loading.
The teaser trailer revealed the iconic suit worn by Isaac Clarke and the foreboding atmosphere, and it got real when the ominous literal writing on the wall revealed “Cut Off Their Limbs”, hearkening back to the classic Dead Space experience that haunted us back in 2008.
Why are you even reading this, just watch the short but sweet teaser trailer below!
“The Dead Space franchise made a huge impact on the survival horror genre when it was released 12 years ago, and I came to Motive as a fan first to specifically work on this game. We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise.” said Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space.
For the uninitiated, Dead Space tells the story of Isaac Clarke, an everyman engineer on a mission to repair a vast, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected by some alien scourge… and Isaac’s beloved partner, Nicole, is lost somewhere on board. Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills as he attempts to uncover the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs”, Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the escalating terrors of the ship, but his own crumbling sanity.
Dead Space is currently in development with an unspecified launch date for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC.
