EA and Motive have unveiled the full game details and key improvements for the upcoming Dead Space remake, along with a first-ever gameplay trailer that raises the immersion factor to new heights.
With newly added narrative elements, the USG Ishimura is home to new discoveries and will have players questioning their own sanity as they delve deeper and begin to uncover its secrets, fighting for their survival with monstrous terrors lurking at every turn.
At the center of it all is Isaac Clarke, an everyman engineer on a routine mission to fix the mining starship. What greets him is a living nightmare as the crew has been slaughtered and infected, with his girlfriend missing on board.
Check out the first official Dead Space gameplay trailer below:
Dead Space will feature key gameplay improvements, such as:
- The Peeling System: Necromorphs, monstrosities unlike anything seen before, have been reconstructed around the new Peeling System, which introduces layered flesh, tendons and bones that break, tear, and shatter in shocking new ways.
- The Intensity Director: The new Intensity Director dynamically adjusts what shows up in Isaac’s path, from Necromorph spawns and how they choose to attack them, to environmental effects such as light, smoke, particles, and sound. Isaac’s heartbeat, breathing, and exertions also adjust based on his stress level to provide players direct feedback on his mental, emotional and physical state.
- An Enhanced Engineering Fantasy: Without weapons or backup, Isaac is forced to defend himself against the Necromorphs by leveraging high-tech mining tools to strategically dismember nightmarish creatures, solve puzzles on his thrilling journey and turn the Ishimura’s malfunctioning systems to his advantage.
- A Fully Interconnected Ishimura: From the start screen to the end credits, players will confront the frighteningly tight corridors and shadowed hallways of the USG Ishimura without a single load screen or camera cut ever breaking the immersion. This enormous mining ship has been restored for the remake with new rooms, routes, and obstacles while permitting seamless exploration with new UI map controls and an improved locator.
Dead Space is scheduled to launch on January 27, 2023 for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC via the EA App, Steam, and Epic Games Store.
