Dead Space Remake coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S
After waiting for a long time and after listening to many rumors around this project, EA has finally revealed the first Dead Space Remake title. For the occasion, a disturbing trailer of the title was also shown at the end of EA Play Live 2021.
Dead Space Remak will be developed by EA Motive with the power of the Frostbite Engine, and the game will be available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
As can be seen in the trailer below, Dead Space will make its return in the form of a remake, however, it will be completely rebuilt from the ground up to make the most of next-gen consoles and PC.
This will allow the game to further raise the bar in terms of graphics, audio, and controls. There will be also an improved story, characters, and gameplay mechanics, while everything else will be exactly as we have remembered it.
The senior producer of EA Motive Phillippe Ducharme stated the following in the official press release:
“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. Going back to the original and having the opportunity to do so on next-gen consoles excited everyone on the team. As we look to modernize the game, we’ve reached out to dedicated fans and invited them to provide us with feedback since the early stages of production to deliver the Dead Space game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”
Check the description of the game below:
Isaac Clarke is 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.
