Dead Space is a renowned sci-fi game known for its spine-chilling horror element. Its remake was announced back in 2021 at the EA Play Live. Fans are excited to experience the classic survival game and relive their golden memories of playing it once again.
EA has released the first 18 minutes of gameplay from the Dead Space Remake.
The opening scene features the familiar repair vessel Kellion as it approaches the USG Ishimura. The remake is a complete rebuild of the original title, but with better visuals.
Although Isaac Clarke was mostly silent for the better part of Dead Space, he has a string of dialogues and can be seen chatting away in the remake. This has allowed some friendly banter between him and the vessel crew. Clarke is voiced by Gunner Wright, just like in the second and third installments of the series.
EA will deliver a modern take on the classic 2008 horror game. However, some fans are concerned about how well the remake will be able to retain its horror and survivalist identity. Clearly, there are a lot of expectations riding on EA.
The Dead Space Remake joins the long list of old 2000s titles being revamped for the current-gen consoles. Hopefully, it will persuade more developers to bring back older games.
Dead Space will be released on January 27, 2023, for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
About Dead Space Remake
Dead Space Remake is the next-gen remake of the 2008 sci-fi action horror franchise developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts. The Remake is being handled by EA Motive and is set to feature various upgrades to the visuals, sound, and gameplay.
Dead Space follows the story of Isaac Clarke, an engineer on board an intergalactic mining ship called the USSG Ishimura. On discovering an ancient artifact known as The Marker, the ship is overrun by a species of aliens called Necromorphs. With the aliens turning the crew into one of their own, Isaac must fight through the hordes as he tries to find a way to get back to Earth.
The gameplay is reminiscent of the Resident Evil franchise, with inventory management being a key component. Players have access to a variety of mining tools that become weapons and must navigate the claustrophobic corridors of the Ishimura while fighting off the Necromorphs.
