Electronic Arts’ studio, Motive, has announced the remake of its flagship sci-fi survival horror game, Dead Space, today at EA Play Live 2021.
The Dead Space remake is exclusively for next-generation consoles and PC. It promises to lift the immersive horror experience to unprecedented heights for the franchise. The game also offers groundbreaking visuals, audio and controls powered by the Frostbite game engine. Players can expect to experience an improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics and more as they fight to survive a living nightmare aboard the desolate mining starship.
“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 game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space.
What is Dead Space?
Dead Space is a sci-fi survival horror game that follows Isaac Clarke, an everyman engineer on a mission to repair the USG Ishimura. However, he quickly realises that something has gone horribly wrong. Unfortunately, the ship’s crew is no more and infected by some alien scourge. Worse yet, Isaac’s lover, Nicole, finds herself stranded somewhere on board.
Isaac is alone. He will need to use his tools and engineering skills to survive as he attempts to uncover the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the starship. Trapped with zombie-like “necromorphs”, Isaac must fight against the terrors lurking within the ship and his own crumbling sanity.
Dead Space will be available worldwide on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Watch the official teaser video here.
