The sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt by Motive Studios to deliver a deeper and more immersive experience. Dead Space is being developed exclusively for the next generation of consoles and PC, taking the level of horror and immersion for the franchise to new heights through stunning visuals, audio and controls powered by the Frostbite game engine. Fans will experience enhanced story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more as they fight to survive a living nightmare aboard the desolate mining ship, the USG Ishimura, as they uncover the horrifying mystery of what happened to the butchered crew and the ship happened
Isaac Clarke is a run-of-the-mill engineer on a mission to repair a huge, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, but discovers something has gone horribly wrong. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected by an alien plague… and Isaac’s beloved partner, Nicole, is lost somewhere aboard. Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and technical skills as he tries to unravel the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs,” Isaac faces a struggle for survival not only against the ship’s escalating horrors, but also against his own crumbling sanity.
According to an interview with IGNMotive is completely rebuilding Dead Space’s assets, although it sounds like the main reason the game is exclusive to the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 is their fast solid-state drives…
[The faster SSDs of new consoles mean] there is no loading. There won’t be a time when we’re going to cut your experience, where we’re going to cut your camera. You can play it seamlessly from the home screen to the credits.
The new Dead Space is coming to PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5. A release window has yet to be set. What do you think? Enthusiastic about cutting and dicing some limbs again?
