In Dead Space, Isaac Clarke is an ordinary engineer on a mission to repair a vast and sprawling spaceship, the USG Ishimura, with the aim of finding out what went terribly wrong. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected with an alien scourge… and Isaac’s beloved companion, Nicole, is missing somewhere aboard. Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills as he attempts to uncover the nightmare mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs,” Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the ship’s growing horrors, but also against his own declining sanity.
While faithful to the original game, the Remake of Dead Space will propose new elements while some of the old ones have been removed, this is because they did not fit the best.
We are working to improve the experience by returning an incredible audio, which will offer players the possibility to perceive the positioning of objects and enemies in the vicinity, through 3D sounds.
EA Motive he added:
Dead Space Remake it is built from the ground up, with new character models, new environments and more, even if based on the original designs. There are unreleased parts such as new props and parts that you will recognize, even if we try to preserve the story and structure the development is completely new.
We’re eliminating the things that don’t work to make sure the title is appealing to the modern audience by developing it with the Frostbite. Our goal is to offer a smooth experience, from start to credits, without pauses.
Dead Space will be available worldwide on PlayStationⓇ5, Xbox Series X | S and PC in 2023.
